Monday Movie Night Review 3: Nosferatu

What!? They're replacing me with Bela Lugosi? This is outrageous!

You can't beat the original, and Max Shreck will defiantly prove this. The film of the choice tonight is Nosfeartu. The film is about a man named Harker who travels to the castle of Count Orlock, but more commonly reffered to in this movie as Dracula. Harker is in seek of gold but instead he simply loses blood and pees his pants with fear. But to be honest, how couldn't you? Nosferatu is terrifying, just look at that photo. And this was back in 1922, they didn't have ANY special effects except for makeup. So if you think it looks creepy now just imagine it back then when they didn't have the stuff we have today. While the film may be incredible, we were oddly never meant to see it. The reason being so is that the maker of this film was trying to release it without the permission of Bram's Stoker or his wife. Instead he just tried to release it without any permission. While the film was quickly trying to be taken off of shelves it was already too late for many copies were made and a large quantity of people saw it. Eventually, the film became lost for a very long time until a original copy eventually surfaced, and thank Chi. Because it is one of the most important vampire films as one of the first. If you don't like old movies than all I can say is, I'm sorry. Because old movies can be very amazing jewels to watch. So, like I say with the other movies, if you so happen to find a copy of this at a movie rental store, than pick it up. Because it is definitely worth it. :)
