The first psychological film
The Germans were the first to explore the psychological thriller and horror genre. This movie was made in the decade when they took the camera off the tripod, the German's were the first, to show the killer's point of view, as has been used in a gazillion movies since then. They were still exploring in 1919, let's not be too hard on them, and you can see the expressionism and cubism leaking through. The influence of this film goes from the Universal Horror movies, to Hitchcock, to Night of the Living Dead, to Lou Reed and The Cure. And for the Burroughs fan, you gotta love the 23 years old, slept for 23 years thing.
