Max Schreck's performance in the classic film Nosferatu has become legendary. What if the reason he was so good is that he really was a vampire? That's the premise of this film, which features director F.W. Murnau so enamored with creating the perfect vampire film that he seeks out an actual member of the undead to play the title role. But when Schreck starts taking more and more advantage of the opportunities to feed he suddenly has, can Murnau come to his senses and destroy him?

Great movie11 April 2016

Great original story and clever way to develop the plot. Terrific acting from Willem Dafoe and John Malkovich. A bit of a sleeper but worth watching.
