Synopsis:
Somewhere in Eastern Europe 1922… Filming F. W. Murnau's classic vampire movie, Noferatu, is being disrupted not only by funding problems, but by rumours of disappearances and deaths amongst and cast and crew. On the first night of shooting, the cameraman mysteriously takes ill and collapses… Some days later, his replacement falls into a trance and never recovers… Leading man Max Shreck (Willem Dafoe) is never introduced to the cast and crew and he is never seen out of character. Hapless actor Gustav (Eddie Izzard) thinks his sinister co-star is the ultimate method actor.
In fact, director Murnau (John Malkovich) has sealed a pact with Shreck offering him the neck of his leading lady (Catherine McCormack) at the end of the shoot if he delivers the ultimate performance for the camera. Stranded on an island, the crew must finish the film before Shreck's bloodlust becomes incontrollable.

Perfect for those of us who love vampire movies - Shadow of the Vampire review by CW

Spoiler Alert
03/04/2019

Loved it. John Malkovich is very convincing as director of the silent movie who will do ANYTHING to get his film made, even sacrificing his actors. Willem Dafoe is brilliant as the vampire pretending that he is an actor playing the part of Count Orlok. Eddie Izzard is marvellously campy as the young man trying to make a deal with the count. What contributed to the grand fun was that it seemed as though the actors were throughly enjoying their roles. The “business” of Count Orlok - hissing, smearing, clicking his nails, sucking in his breath - were perfect. Dafoe nailed the role. Campy, compellingly, delightfully fun.
