Directed by F.W. Murnau
F.W. Murnau's silent version of DRACULA is one of the greatest horror films ever made, thanks in large part to Max Schreck's still-terrifying performance as the bald vampire Nosferatu, sporting razor sharp fangs and long pointy fingernails. Murnau's brilliant use of scary shadows and atmospheric dread influenced countless vampire films and TV series - including DARK SHADOWS, BRAM STOKER'S DRACULA, BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER and the recent horror comedy WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS. Every horror fan should try to watch this at least once a year, in our opinion.

This film turns 100 in 2022 and it still puts a smile on my face.
A golden classic that’ll never stop being important in horror history
Yes, it’s silent. (Oh, the HORROR! Can I hold my five-minute-attention-span through to the end?!?) But, assuming you want to be able to claim that True Horror Aficionado merit badge, you need to get over that and Watch. This. Movie. Because Braum Stoker told me so.
