    "I don't know what's in the mind of these brilliant German Expressionist directors. Instead of your typical horror story, they convey it with acting, cinematography and overall theme. Minimalistic but effective."

    "A unique take of a horror movie at that time. Instead of a typical, titular monster as main attraction, it's a documentary style."
