This film is about a director directing a director directing a film. Inception much? Here, lets put it this way: E. Elias Merhige is directing F.W. Murnau directing his landmark horror film, Nosferatu. But of course, it is a fictionalized account and stylishly done. I consider Nosferatu to be the greatest horror film ever made, hands down. Not only it laid down all the blueprints of horror, but st... read more

A good movie

It has been a while since I have seen this flick and it would be nice to actually re-watch it at some point. To be honest, I don’t really remember how I ended up watching this flick and, on top of that, I have to admit that I hadn’t seen yet at the time the seminal classic ‘Nosferatu’ but, still, I thought there was something quite mesmerizing about this movie. Indeed, it is such a weird f... read more

Moviewatcher122's 2016 Film Diary: March (43 movies items)

"March 23 "Why him, you monster? Why not the... script girl?" "Oh. The script girl. I'll eat her later." I was intrigued by this movie when I heard that this was a fictionalized version of the making of Nosferatu and now that I've seen the original movie, I decided that now was the time to watch it. It was a very interesting movie and they did a really good job of making it actually look like the filming of Nosferatu. The acting is one of this movie's strong points with John Malkovich as F.W "

"21.3.2016 Nosferatu tuli katsottua lähinnä sen vuoksi, että saisin tekosyyn katsoa Shadow of the Vampiren. Mitäpä tästä, filmi yhdistelee kliffasti faktaa ja fiktiota. Näyttely on kerrassaan loistavaa, vaikka paikoin aksentit alkavat kuulostaa pakkopullalta. Pidin kuitenkin valtavasti elokuvan kylmästä tunnelmasta ja loppukohtaus on mitä mainiointa elävää kuvaa."
