Nosferatu (1922) Review
Written by: thedeadshallrule
Cool your Horror jets and sit down. Watch this Silent, Black and White, perfection of Horror treasure. Set your mind into 1922 and view it like a virgin, if you don't pee your pants in terror, there is no hope for you!! This is without a doubt one of THE best Horror movies ever put to film. YOU have to discover the Why and if you do....then you are in a class of people that no words can describe, MuHAHAHAHAHA.
No really, this is a wonderful Horror diversion, one that every Horror lover should partake. On So many levels this telling of the Classic Dracula/Vampire tale does the story vast justice.
I am a total fan of overthetop stage acting and nothing can beat a good old silent film for the gestures and reactions that lay it thick and heavy. The gore is a slight knife cut to the finger with a Very interested Vampire stalking thrown in. Dead sea captains with bite marks covering the throat? All the actors and actresses NOT half nude and under 20? Oh my, Did I see hair on the vampire's ear? Did you notice that NO ONE had a clue how to rid themselves of this "PLAGUE"? The undoing of evil was.....well let's just say, evil can and Will trip itself up, most likey while pondering Good.
OK OK my lesson on morals and darkness is over for today kiddies. Pop some corn and hold each other, for the tug of fear you desire is right here...in THIS film.
