About the Film:
Nosferatu is a 1922 German Expressionist horror film, directed by F. W. Murnau, which tells the story of an undead vampire Count Orlok (played by Max Schreck), who travels from Transylvania to Wisborg. The film, shot in 1921 and released in 1922, was an unauthorised adaptation of Bram Stoker’s Dracula (1897). Nosferatu is the first vampire film and it is also considered the foremost German Expressionist film. The portrayal of Orlok as a monstrous, predator-like creature with long talon-like fingernails and other exaggerated features was later credited as one of the first appearances of a vampire in popular culture.
How was the movie made?(Nosferatu 1992)
The film was shot in 1921 on location in both Berlin and Wisborg and on sets built at the Babelsberg Studios in Berlin. Murnau’s producers hired Albin Grau to supervise the artistic design, and he himself created some of the settings, directing the art department. In 1921, actors Gustav von Wangenheim and Alexander Granach went on strike for better salaries; thus filming was suspended for a few weeks. Filming took six months in all.
How did the audience react to the film?
The film was well received by audiences upon its initial release, and has been used in university training programs. The juxtaposition of contemporary social commentary in the film with the horror elements in Nosferatu led some critics to compare it to the earlier Dracula. However, audiences invited Murnau to make a sequel because they liked the main character’s name of “Orlok”. Murnau agreed, and subsequently filmed Phantom (1922), which also explores themes of evil and transgression.
What is interesting about the movie?
Orlok and Hutter are undead creatures who feed on the blood of mortals. While the traditional image of a vampire is feminine in appearance, Murnau’s Orlok displays characteristics associated with werewolves and other predators: he is shown as a rat-like monstrosity who can scale walls and stand on two legs. Orlok’s presence also precludes sunlight, which is presented as both a literal and metaphorical defence against evil. The main character Hutter, who initially sees no evil in Orlok, gradually learns to appreciate Christian values during his stay in Wisborg.
When was the movie released?
The movie ‘Nosferatu’ was released on March 15, 1922 in Germany.
