Caligari (The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari) (1920)It wasn’t until the 1920s, though, that German horror — and German Expressionism — hit its creative stride. Robert Wiene’s The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (1920) was a landmark film that has become the epitome of the Expressionist movement, with its dreamlike sequences and distorted set design with painted buildings and landscapes (including painted-on light and shadow) that resemble abstract art.

German expressionism is a type of theatre style that surfaced during World War 1 in Germany.

I have not read "Thérèse Raquin," the 1867 Emile Zola novel upon that "In Secret" is predicated. a little analysis disclosed that Zola's serialized story of free love, murder and marriages, each organized and desired, has been adapted various times. "Thérèse Raquin" has been remade as a German silent film, TV movies in Belgium, Italy, Sweden, Germany and the UK, a BBC radio play and an opera.
