Guest Speaker: IAN HOLT, renown expert on Vampire folklore and co-author (with Dacre Stoker, Bram Stokers great-grandnephew) of Dracula The Undead, the sequel to Dracula

Live Musical Accompaniment by BEN MODEL on the Cinemas Miditzer Theater Organ

Considered the first important film of the vampire genre, F.W. Murnau's 1922 classic Nosferatu has more atmosphere, ingenuity, and imagination than almost any of its successors. Created on a shoestring budget, Murnau used real locations and a combination of cutting-edge special effects (including negative film and double exposures) to creatue a unquely chilling atmosphere. But perhaps Nosferatu is is most renown for Max Schrecks unforgettable performance by as Count Orlok, a.k.a. the blood-sucking Nosferatu. With his rodent-like features and long, bony-fingered hands, Schreck's vampire is an icon of screen horror. Despite minor differemces, the film is an obvious adaptation of Bram Stokers Dracula. The subsequent lawsuit by Bram Stokers widow almost succeeded in driving a stake through the heart of Nosferatu, as she demanded every print of the film be destroyed. She was unsuccessful, thankfully. Nosferatu is now rightly considered a masterpiece of horror and it sparked moviedoms rabid, never-ending fascination with vampires, the undead and Dracula.

Germany, 1929, 94 min.
