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

stopped watching it after 45 minutes, maybe after an hour it becomes interesting.

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

“It has been a while since I have seen this flick and it would be nice to actually re-watch it at some point.

Indeed, it is such a weird feature, half of it actually really took place and the other half was based on some legend that Max Schreck was in reality a vampire. Of course, it is a really ridiculous idea (expect maybe if you believe that vampires do exist, just like Santa Claus or the Easter Bunny) but there was something quite exhilarating to see that a film maker that would dare to tell such a far-out story. Still, it remai” read more

"Back when the world of cinema was still in it's infancy, how could a director make a film about a vampire at a time when the first CGI special effects won't make an appearance for yet another 70 years? Easy. Instead of an actor, hire a real-life vampire for the lead role. *Insert your own "Hollywood-is-nuthin'-but-a-buncha-bloodsuckers-anyway" type of wisecracking analogy here* "

Not only it laid down all the blueprints of horror, but still to this day stays true to the term. When I heard about this film, I just had to see it. The mix of both real and fiction intrigued me a lot and I thoroughly enjoyed the pace of the film. Just like Nosferatu, Shadow of the Vampire is also a cool title, adding mystery and curiosity to it. The film was like a great gift to me since I love Nosferatu a lot. I finally got to see the "behind the scen” read more

" Director: E. Elias Merhige Cast: John Malkovich, Willem Dafoe, Udo Kier, Cary Elwes Story: The filming of Nosferatu is hampered by the fact that the star is taking his role far more seriously than what seems humanly possible."
