NOSFERATU, A SYMPHONY OF HORROR
[Nosferatu, eine Symphonie des Grauens]
The Halloween Classic
Casting a long and terrifying shadow over the genre, German silent film master F.W. Murnau's uncredited appropriation of Bram Stoker's Dracula set the standard for all vampire flicks to come. Max Schreck's monstrous Count Orlok is singularly frightening, repulsive and beastly where Bela Lugosi was courtly and Christopher Lee seductive.
DIR F.W. Murnau; SCR Henrik Galeen, based on the novel Dracula by Bram Stoker; PROD Enrico Dieckmann, Albin Grau. Germany, 1922, b&w, 81 min. NOT RATED
Washington, DC, ensemble silent orchestra--keyboardist Carlos Garza and percussionist Rich O'Meara--will once again accompany NOSFERATU with their acclaimed original score, by turns dreamlike, ambient, thundering and hell-bent.
