Film Lecture: Shadow Of The Vampire

Thursday 24 January 2013, 17:30

Introduced by Marie Mulvey-Roberts, UWE

In 1921, F.W. Murnau cast unknown actor Max Schreck to portray the undead Count Orlock in his great silent-film Nosferatu. The conceit, brilliantly played out in this sharp and shockingly funny film, is that a creepy Murnau (John Malkovich), knew his lead (Willem Dafoe) was a real vampire when he hired him.
