(Germany/1922) Directed by F.W. Murnau
In recognition of the upcoming Halloween holiday, the Alloy will perform live with a single screening of German director F.W. Murnau’s silent vampire classic, Nosferatu, A Symphony of Horror. Murnau’s eerie and visually striking adaptation of Bram Stoker’s Dracula is considered by many to be the greatest vampire movie of all time (the film’s production troubles and legendary title performance by Max Schreck were the subject of 2000’s Shadow of the Vampire, in which Schreck was portrayed by Willem Dafoe). Packed with images and passages which still have the power to disorient and alarm, Nosferatu once again becomes a true symphony of horror when experienced with the Alloy Orchestra’s ominous and scarily effective score. (approx. 75 min.)
