Preview- The Hands Of Orlac (Masters of Cinema Bluray)

Reuniting the star and director of Das Cabinet des Dr. CaligariThe Hands of Orlac [Orlac’s Händeis a deliciously twisted thriller that blends grand guignol thrills with the visual and performance styles of German Expressionism.

Based on a novel by medical-horror novelist Maurice Renard, it charts the mental disintegration of a concert pianist (Conrad Veidt) whose hands are amputated after a train crash, and replaced with the hands of an executed murderer. When Orlac’s father is murdered by the dead man’s hands, Orlac begins a steady descent towards madness.

The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present The Hands of Orlac for the first time on home video in the UK in a special Blu-ray edition.
