Eureka Entertainment to release 4K restoration of ‘DER GOLEM’ as part of The Masters of Cinema Series

Eureka Entertainment will release Paul Wegener and Carl Boese’s silent horror classic, DER GOLEM, on Blu-ray for the first time in the UK as part of The Masters of Cinema Series on 18 November 2019.

DER GOLEM is presented in 1080p from a stunning 4K digital restoration of the original film negatives, completed by FWMS in 2017.



In the Jewish ghetto in 16th century Prague, Rabbi Low (Albert Streinruck) creates a forbidding clay Golem (played by director Paul Wegener) to protect his people from the tyrannical Emperor Luhois (Otto Gebuhr). Brought to life with a demon spirit and an amulet placed in the centre of the creature’s chest, the Golem is a seemingly indestructible juggernaut, performing acts of great heroism. But when the Rabbi’s assistant attempts to control the Golem for selfish gain, it becomes a terrifying force of destruction, rampaging through the ghetto leaving fire and death in its wake.
