DETAILS

100th Anniversary Screening!

It doesn’t get more iconic than NOSFERATU—the vampiric movie urtext that established the Dracula legend for generations of cinephiles. At 100 years old, NOSFERATU is as haunting and ethereal as it was a century ago. And as the film that made F.W. Murnau’s reputation as a master of German Expressionism, as well as a master of horror, NOSFERATU is the perfect film to celebrate during the Halloween’s high season.

An unauthorized adaptation of Bram Stoker’s Dracula (published just twenty-five years prior), NOSFERATU sees Max Schreck portray Count Orlok, a more otherwordly, more outwardly monstrous version of Count Dracula. The film’s release in 1922 made much of Schreck’s mysterious reputation, implying the possibility that Schreck and Orlok were one in the same. With its setting transposed from the book’s London to Wisborg, Germany, NOSFERATU is a true Weimar milestone. It both stands as the ultimate Dracula adaptation, while occupying an uncanniness that is entirely of its own. Screening as part of Silent Revue’s season-long celebration of all things “Trains, Planes, and Automobiles” (NOSFERATU has several instances of nineteenth-century locomotion)! – ALICIA FLETCHER
