The Projection Booth:Dr. Caligari

Special Guests: Stephen Sayadian & Jerry Stahl

Guest Co-Host: Heather Drain

We see you looking at us… We’re discussing the 1989 film, Dr. Caligari. Directed by Stephen Sayadian and co-written by Jerry Stahl, the film is the third in a series of sexy, surrealistic films. It’s the tale of Mrs. Van Houten (Laura Albert), a patient at the CIA — Caligari Insane Asylum — run by the granddaughter of the infamous German doctor.

Our good friend Heather Drain takes over the co-host chair this week.
