The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (1920)

This is one from the annals (heh) of film history. Dating back to 1920, The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari is a study in psychological horror and set design. Due to its age, it’s in the public domain and is freely available on many different formats… so you basically have no excuse not to see it.
