Nosferatu Series Episode 1

The oldest movie we will ever review! (Probably)

A decade before Universal Studios made Dracula the centerpiece of their stable of movie monsters, German visionary FW Murnau put his own spin on Bram Stoker’s literary creation with the 1922 silent classic Nosferatu: A Symphony of Horror.  Is Max Schreck’s iconic portrayal of Count Orlock the vampire that all other cinematic incarnations aspire to be?  And is the plague being spread by this creature of the night really anti-seminism and Nazi fervor?  Find out if Stuart, Arnie, and Jakob stick their lovely throats out for this bootleg bloodsucker.  Listen Now!
