Nosferatu (1922); Symphony of HorrorFriday, October 31, 2008, at 10:00 pm
Silent film with recorded score by the Devil Music Ensemble
NR, 85 minutes
F.W. Murnau's German silent classic is the original and some say scariest Dracula adaptation, taking Bram Stoker's novel and turning it into a haunting, shadowy dream full of dread. Count Orlok, the rodentlike vampire frighteningly portrayed by Max Schreck, is perhaps the most animalistic screen portrayal of a vampire ever filmed. Nosferatu is an eerie, menacing film that should not be missed.
