Der Golem


Gary Lucas plays the Golem.

Der Golem was a silent 1920's horror film by Paul Wegener, a classic piece of
 german expressionism.  It's the story of a 16th Century Rabbi who summons Astaroth (the prince of Hell) to learn the word that will bring the Golem to life in the hope it would save
 Prague's Jewish getto.  Many consequent films have been inspired by it and the soundtrack seems to have been re-done a couple of times, all are interesting.  Check out this clip it was my favorite out of what i saw, and I've also added some stills...
