In a run-down part of town stands a small theater, owned by an eccentric old man. His spectacle The Mechanical Dancer is a sight to behold, although it has seen better days.
The Mechanical Dancer is a beautiful animated horror short, inspired by German Expressionism and particularly The Cabinet of Dr Caligari.
