Nosferatu: A Symphony of Horror (1922) ~ 100 Anniversary Presentation

Opens on

Director: F. W. Murnau Run Time: 94 min. Rating: Not rated Release Year: 1922 Language: German

Starring: Max Schreck

Original title: Nosferatu – Eine Symphonie des Grauens

Presented in celebration of SILENT MOVIE DAY – SEPTEMBER 29th
An annual day dedicated to celebrating, preserving and creating access to silent movies!

A cornerstone of the horror film, F.W. Murnau’s NOSFERATU: A SYMPHONY OF HORROR is resurrected in an HD edition mastered from the acclaimed 35mm restoration by the Friedrich-Wilhelm-Murnau-Stiftung. Backed by an orchestral performance of Hans Erdmann’s 1922 score, this edition offers unprecedented visual clarity and historical faithfulness to the original release version.

An unauthorized adaptation of Bram Stoker’s Dracula, NOSFERATU remains to many viewers the most unsettling vampire film ever made, and its bald, spidery vampire, personified by the diabolical Max Schreck, continues to spawn imitations in the realm of contemporary cinema.
