Nosferatu

Nosferatu

Synopsis

When Bram Stoker's widow refused to grant Murnau the rights to Dracula, Murnau and his screenwriter Henrik Galeen simply changed the characters' names and went ahead with the film, creating one of the greatest horror movies, not just of the silent screen, but of all time. Murnau's visionary direction and the chilling performance of Max Schreck in the title role make Nosferatu nothing less than a masterpiece.
