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

" The Plot:Shadow of the Vampire is a film about the making of a German all time classic silent horror-movie from 1922 called Nosferatu-Eine Symphonie des Grauens (Nosferatu-a Symphony of Horror). The production of Nosferatu had to deal with a lot of strange things (some crew members disappeared, some died). This movie focuses on the difficult relationship between Murnau, the director, and Schreck, the lead actor. Director:E. Elias Merhige Starring:John Malkovich,Willem Dafoe,Udo Kier,"

My Top 99 Favorite Horror Movies (99 movies items)

"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
