Nosferatu (1922)

Lets start this thing with some celebration here : this blog has just struck 100 followers and that is great. I didn't think I could get so many, now for the next hundred 
So for this great occasion I bring you a real treat. A movie from 1922 , the great Nosferatu, the one and only, true horror movie. I decided to write about Nosferatu for my 100 followers because it's one of my oldest movies and because everyone loves vampires. And this guy for sure is the greatest vampire ever to be seen. Thou not so good looking, that's where Gary Oldman wins for sure. Now back to this movie, as you might notice , this is somewhat old. Yes it is silent, yes they act like in a theater and yes there are no colors and all that mambo jumbo, but for some reason, it give you the creeps. The way the tension is built, the way everything is shown, that even thou nothing scary seems to happen , my heart was pounding like a drummer from AC/DC. Just to let you know, I'm not a big horror fan, because they do not scare me, but this one... it just has something in it.I do recommend watching it alone, for the company is sure to ruin the whole mood. 
 You might have seen never versions of this, from same book by Bram Stoker , and that is even more interesting  You watch this and compare with new ones, see what is missing, and I can say that there are so many changes as there are years separating etch version. To end this, there is one thing that i got disappointed by. It's the scene where they slay Nosferatu, and it was not as epic as it could have been.

  14. Nosferatu is one of my favorite old school horror movies ever. Max Schreck look genuinely scary.

  15. I loved when movies were scary due to suspense, not gore and violence.
