Directed by Richard Oswald, the horror film series "Unheimliche Geschichten" (Horror Stories) features three popular stars of the German Silent Film era: Anita Berber, Conrad Veidt and Reinhold Schünzel who are also known as the "Trio Infernal." The three appear at the start of the episodes in the costumes of a prostitute, Death and Devil, searching for horror stories in an antique bookshop at midnight. They come up with five short, sinister plots about dubious husbands, lost hands and mysterious houses, the stories for the "Unheimliche Geschichten" episodes.

Oswald's 1919 horror films are considered to be the first of their kind and have become the basis for movies of this genre. Oswald distorted reality and adapted his stories from the theatrical to moving pictures. His trick techniques were revolutionary for the time and today his films are gems among early horror movies.

The silent film episodes will be accompanied by music composed and played by the MAJAM Chamber Jazz group...link!

About us

Best described as a Murakami detox support group, we're all fans of the quirkily brilliant Japanese author, Haruki Murakami, and writing about such things as films we've seen recently and books we're reading (not to mention meandering musings on the man's work, of course) helps us to pass time while waiting for the next book from Haruki-baby.
