Made in 1922, on location in the Carpathians and several Baltic Towns, Nosferatu is in all but name Bram Stokers Dracula with the lead names changed. Starring Max Schrek as Nosferatu the film relies heavily on lighting, shadow and pictorial compensation. Following closely Bram Stokers novel. Stokers wife took offence and won her case against the producers forcing them to destroy all prints. Luckily a couple survived.

I was amazed and dazilled by the spectacular camera work of this film, i didn't expect a film to have been made so soon after the invention of cinema to be so amazingly sophisticated that it rivals todays achievements. Marnau certainly knew a creepy shot and how to go about creating it, no other film of any sort has ever frightened me this much.
