Friday Night Fright Films: Nosferatu

Every Friday night this month I’ll watch one horror/Halloween-y film of my choice.  So far I’ve watched Sleepy Hollow and 13 Ghosts.

Tonight’s film will be Nosferatu.  A classic.  Most people don’t watch silent films anymore.  I really like this particular one. Interesting fact: The character of Nosferatu is only seen on screen for a bit less than 9 minutes in total throughout the whole film.  And even with that minimal amount of screen time this film has terrified people for years.

This film influenced another good horror film called Shadow of the Vampire.  Starring John Malkovich as the actor in Nosferatu who believes he is an actual vampire.
