We are going to start off with a 1922 classic, Nosferatu. This German silent film was originally known as Nosferatu, eine Symphonie des Grauens (Nosferatu: A Symphony of Horror) and was directed by F. W. Murnau.

Max Schrek as Count Orlock

It starred Max Schreck as Count Orlok, a vampire on the hunt for new lodgings and a new wife. Unfortunately, the wife he desires is Ellen (Greta Schröder) the wife of Hutter (Gustav von Wangenheim), the gentlman helping Orlok find a home.


This was an unofficial adaptation of Bram Stoker’s 1897 Dracula novel. Several details were changed to avoid copyright issues, but Stoker’s heir still sued and won the copyright claim. All copies of the film were supposed to be destroyed, but obviously a few survived.
