German Expressionism at its finest. Caligari has creepy sets and Nosteratu has the terrifying Max Schreck. Nosteratu wins because the death scene at the end.

I felt both were lacking in a plot, but I can forgive that given that the narrative feature was relatively new then. Nosferatu was dreadfully boring though.

Both are good silent horrors from the 20s. I prefer Nosferatu though.

I'm a pretty big fan of silent movies and yet I didn't like Nosferatu. The movie was just very slow and boring and it wasn't scary at all. Caligari had a way better story, better pacing and it's far scarier. I'm going with The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari for sure.
