Before vampires became pretty boys and a simplistic adolescent metaphor, they were ugly creatures and much more sinister. They represented all everything that kept you awake at night. Fears and desires hidden in your thoughts and in the shadows. The only thing that could kill it was the light.
Released on this date in 1922, the classic German Expressionist horror film, F.W. Murnau’s “Nosferatu” with Max Schreck as Count Orlok. A true monster without a hint of romance.
