Nosferatu is a German Expressionist horror film, directed by F. W. Murnau, starring Max Schreck as the vampire Count Orlok. The film, shot in 1921 and released in 1922, was in essence an unauthorized adaptation of Bram Stoker's Dracula, with names and other details changed because the studio could not obtain the rights to the novel (for instance, "vampire" became "Nosferatu" and "Count Dracula" became "Count Orlok"). I have recently seen this live voiced movie at the open-air cinema/theatre and I have to say that it was 100 times more interesting than what you probably would think about now when you hear a word: vampire. In the middle I was a bit bored, but the ending fixed everything. Even if it was a bit too fast couse I couldn't get it why he died so fast... nevermind... This is a real and original show of the vampires and stop motion effects went ahead of the time itself I think.
