Publisher's Summary

Inspired by the classic silent film of 1919, this original audio play won the Independent Publishers Award in 1998 for best direct¿to-audio production. John De Lancie stars as a young poet who visits a fair one night with his friend and girlfriend. Entering Doctor Caligari¿s tent, they meet the mysterious Cesare, a kind of zombie, who is neither alive nor dead¿and who forecasts doom for our high-strung protagonist and his friends.Combining the directness of an old-time radio play and the language and themes of high psychological drama, this unique production was written, produced and directed by Peabody and Audie award-winner Yuri Rasovsky and features a superb cast.

I purchased this looking for a nice diversion, and was sorely disappointed. The audio quality is terrible - there is no equalization of volume among voices, which makes it annoying to listen to. I had to keep turning it up and down to even hear what was taking place, which meant that my ears were blown out when characters screamed (which seems altogether too often).

Even worse, though the play is clearly set in Germany, the character accents are all 19th-century English, making for a particularly jarring performance.

Save yourself the time and pain.
