Shadow of the Vampire

Duration :


Summary: Some Method actors guzzle diet drinks to prepare for a role...this one guzzles blood. Some leading men get to marry their leading ladies after a shoot...this one gets to bite his leading lady's neck. The actor in question is Max Schreck, the star of F.W. Murnau's classic 1922 vampire film "Nosferatu." In this fanciful, witty re-examination of the film and its creation, Murnau strikes a bargain with a real-life vampire: if Schreck will bring his authenticity to a starring performance in "Nosferatu," Murnau will give him the leading lady as an end-of-filming snack. With John Malkovich, Willem Dafoe (2000 Academy Award(R) nominee for best supporting actor), Cary Elwes, Aden Gillette, Eddie Izzard, Udo Kier, Catherine McCormack and Ronan Vibert. Directed by E. Elias Merhige; written by Steven Katz. (R) (AC,AL,BN,V)
