Nosferatu 1922 PG

89 mins Germany Director. F.W. Murnau

The ‘original’ Dracula film, this expressionist horror spawned many imitators and is seen as one of the greatest gothic movies despite falling foul of Stoker’s estate and being pulled out of distribution for three decades. Max Schreck’s terrifying Count Orlok, a fascinating cinematic ghoul, spreads fear and deadly plague wherever he goes. This restored print features a new score by Hammer composer James Bernard.
