This influential Dracula adaptation contains some of the most famous images of expressionist film, and remains shocking and stylish after 100 years.
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 is presented with Hans Erdmann's original 1922 music score.
