NOSFERATU (1922)
dir: F.W. Murnau

 

 

approx 90 min
starring: Ruth Landshoff, Max Schreck
As noted critic Pauline Kael observes, Nosferatu is the "...first important film of the vampire genre and has more spectral atmosphere, more ingenuity, and more imaginative ghoulish ghastliness than any of its successors." German director F.W. Murnau's 1922 version creates a sinister mood of undaunting terror as Nosferatu (a.k.a.Max Schreck) becomes one of cinems' greatest screen icons. This silient, black and white film, comprised of frightening images, remains as one of the best adaptations of Bram Stoker's Dracula ever made!
