Today marks the 100th anniversary of Nosferatu, the oldest surviving Dracula film! It was first shown on March 4, 1922 in Germany, in the marble hall of the Berlin Zoological Garden. In my review I look back at the classic vampire film, the movies it’s influenced, and the film’s impact on horror and the film industry as a whole.

This is one of my all time favourite movies and I can’t believe I missed it’s birthday! Damn! Thanks for the reminder, though, and will order a glass of German schnapps in my local boozer tonight to toast it.
All that said, yes, this movie is an absolute masterpiece and anyone who haven’t yet seen it really should. One of my mates and myself organised a showing in a local tea house here in Chengdu a few years ago, and once the audience got over their reactions of “come on, it’s black and white” and “come on, it’s old” which are stronger here in China than in most western countries, by the way, they were suitably creeped out by the whole affair and ended up loving it.
Well done for another spot on video, and please keep ’em coming.

It was 2003.. or something. I dunno, i was drug experimenting at the time. I was at folkfest for the first time: some hippy event that lasts the week and you can purchase camping passes… the first night a preformer by the name Nash the Slash set up a piano, violin and electric guitar in a field with two roman pillars and a sheet across.
That night he played the entire sound track to nosferatu as it played off a projector onto all of this.
I was also on acid.
Ill never forget it.
