Nosferatu (1922)

Every so often I like to check out one of the classics from the silent film era. Nosferatu may be the original names changed for legal reasons, as this was actually a retelling of Bram Stokers Dracula, but without permission. So they changed some of the names, but just enough to make it legal. It didn’t work. Eventually all copies were ordered destroyed. Some copies clearly have survived.

The story however is lifted from Dracula with names just changed. There is a great article from horror film history  if you want to know more.

The movie itself tho is pretty cool if you are into movies that are closing in on being 100 years old.  It is one of the better ones I have seen from that time period when it comes to the actual visuals and not much of the original film is lost. The only real downside to it all is it is hard to watch from a story point of view in the sense that it is painfully obvious that you are watching Dracula, and there are better Dracula movies out there. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
