Why the new 'Nosferatu' remake is a good thing

6 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I am not categorically opposed to remakes, though I loathe it when a "perfect" film is cynically exploited just to capitalize on the title. A film like "The Exorcist" should never be remade, for example. Neither should "Alien." I would hope that both of those titles are untouchable, but then again... But sometimes, if there's an interesting take and a talented director attached, a remake can feel almost necessary. Such is the case with this newly-announced update of F.W. Murnau's 1922 silent classic "Nosferatu," which is being helmed by Robert Eggers, who wrote and directed the acclaimed, reportedly terrifying period horror film "The Witch," which netted Eggers the Directing Award in the U.S. Dramatic category at this year's Sundance Film Festival (it's expected to be released sometime this year). Deadline describes the project as a "visceral adaptation" of Murnau's film, which was previously remade by Werner Herzog as "Nosferatu the Vampyre, »

Nosferatu Remake In Development

7 hours ago | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Count Orlok's body looks to once again rise out of the coffin, as a remake of F.W. Murnau's masterful 1922 silent film, Nosferatu, is in the works at Studio 8 with The Witch director at the helm.

Variety reports that Robert Eggers—writer and director of this year's Sundance hit The Witch—is set to pen and helm the remake of Nosferatu, one of the most highly regarded horror films in history that's still effectively eerie to this day. The remake is currently untitled. Producing the Studio 8 project are Jay Van Hoy and Lars Knudsen’s Parts and Labor.

Based in part on Bram Stoker's classic novel, Dracula, F.W. Murnau's Nosferatu debuted in 1922 and centered on the night-stalking Count Orlok and his unfortunate victims. In 1979, Werner Herzog's Nosferatu the Vampyre—an homage to Murnau's masterpiece—was released.

For those unfamiliar with the original Nosferatu film, we have its synopsis and Blu-ray trailer below. »

‘Nosferatu’ Remake in the Works With ‘The Witch’ Director

8 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Studio 8 has brought on Robert Eggers to write and direct a remake of the horror classic “Nosferatu.”

The film is currently untitled and will be based on F.W. Murnau’s 1922 silent film, which followed the vampire Count Orlok of Transylvania, who wants to buy a house in Germany and becomes enamored of the real-estate agent’s wife. It was an unofficial adaptation of Bram Stoker’s “Dracula,” and Werner Herzog directed a 1979 remake.

Jay Van Hoy and Lars Knudsen’s Parts and Labor will produce.

Eggers has already signed a deal with Studio 8 and is attached to direct “The Knight” for the studio.

The helmer drew plenty of interest from Hollywood after “The Witch” drew rave reviews following its bow at Sundance. Studio 8’s upcoming slate includes films from Gary Ross and Francis Lawrence.

Eggers, Van Hoy and Knudsen are repped by Wme.

Nosferatu Remake Draws Fresh Blood In The Witch Writer-Director

8 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Studio 8 is pressing ahead with an untitled vampire horror pic that will serve as an update of the classic 1922 Nosferatu, having tapped The Witch writer-director Robert Eggers to take the reins on the project.

Eggers, who won the directing prize at Sundance this year for his period chiller The Witch, will both write and direct the “visceral” remake of F.W. Murnau’s influential silent film about the titular vampire rife throughout Eastern European folklore.

Vampires have been a staple of big screen horror lately, between action-oriented reimaginings of the Count Dracula legend (Dracula Untold) and innovative, genre-blending stories about bloodsuckers (A Girl Walks Home Alone at NightOnly Lovers Left AliveWhat We Do in the Shadows). With remakes as bankable as ever, it makes depressing sense that an old relic like Nosferatu would get a dusting-off sooner or later.

Luckily, it could be worse – Eggers drew particular praise for »

Sos This Week #16: Filling In The Blanks

It seems like every movie franchise is expanding with sequels, prequels, and anthology films. Every character must be explained and every moment must be felt for us to truly know it happened. We take a look at some of the upcoming prequels, such as the Han Solo solo film that The Lego Movie directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller are directing, and why it may not be entirely necessary to have these films that focus on the details of characters that we learned to love without much explanation.

F.W. Murnau's Grave Robbed By Real Life Ghouls

16 July 2015 8:56 AM, PDT | | See recent CinemaRetro news »

F.W. Murnau, the influential German director of the silent film era, is improbably back in the news again. His grave, located outside of Berlin, has been tampered with on several occasions since his untimely death in a car crash in 1931 at age 42. However, this time robbers have succeeded in absconding with the head of the deceased director. German police are looking into the possibility that the grave robbery may have been part of an occult ritual, given certain evidence found at the scene. Although Murnau's achievements in filmmaking are among the most consequential of all time and span a wide range of subject matters, he is most widely known for his  adaptation of Bram Stoker's novel "Dracula". Murnau's film "Nosferatu" was released in 1922 and remains perhaps the most definitive and frightening version of the tale. At the time he was sued by Stoker's widow for not getting authorization for the film from Stoker's estate. »

What Happened to F.W. Murnau's Head?

15 July 2015 2:28 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

In a bizarre development straight out of a horror classic, Germany reports that "Nosferatu" director F.W. Murnau's embalmed head has been snatched in a chilling grave-robbing heist. The hair-raising incident occurred within Murnau's family cemetery plot, just 12 miles west of Berlin in Stahnsdorf, Germany.  Though Murnau was killed in a car accident in 1931 Santa Barbara, California, his body was buried in his native country shortly. According to Der Spiegel, this is not the first time his grave has been disturbed. Whether there was a larger, grander "occult" motive at play (wax residue was found near the gravesite), remains to be seen.     His brother's nearby graves, however, remain perfectly intact.  Another notorious celebrity grave robbery occurred in 1978, when two mechanics chasing a ransom from Charlie Chaplin's widow purloined his body -- but were quickly arrested. »

Nosferatu Director's Head Stolen From His Grave

15 July 2015 3:31 AM, PDT | | See recent Worst Previews news »

German news outlets are reporting that grave robbers located the grave of "Nosferatu" director Fw Murnau, dug up his metal coffin and then stole the head of the filmmaker. Investigators believe the crime was a ritual or occult-related, as wax residue was found at the site. However, conclusive evidence has not yet been discovered, and the act may have been committed as a prank. Murnau's "Nosferatu" is a silent vampire movie, considered one of the scariest horror films of all time. It was released in 1922 and is an unauthorized adaptation of Bram Stoker's "Dracula" novel. Murnau also directed "Sunrise," which earned him several Oscars at the first Academy Awards. He died in 1931 in a car crash near Santa Barbara at the age of 42. Despite dying in California, he was buried in his native Germany, at a family plot in a cemetery in Stahnsdorf that's about 12 miles from central Berlin. »

"Nosferatu" Director's Head Has Been Stolen

14 July 2015 2:47 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

In arguably the strangest news of the day, German news outlets are reporting that the head of famed filmmaker and "Nosferatu" director F.W. Murnau has been stolen from his grave.

Murnau died in 1931 in a car crash with his body buried in his family plot in a cemetery in Stahnsdorf, Germany. Today, it seems grave robbers opened his metal coffin to access his body, but left the nearby graves of his two brothers undisturbed. Wax residue at the scene has been suggested to be a possible occult connection.

"Nosferatu," released in 1922, was silent vampire movie and unauthorized adaptation of Bram Stoker's "Dracula". It remains one of the most famous early cinematic works ever made and was the subject of its own film in 2000's "Shadow of the Vampire" which starred John Malkovich as Murnau.

German news outlets are reporting that the head of “Nosferatu” director F.W. Murnau has been stolen from his family plot in a cemetery in Stahnsdorf, Germany. The filmmaker of the early silent vampire movie, recognized as one of the scariest horror movies of all time, died in 1931.

In a story reminiscent of one of his own movies, grave robbers opened a metal coffin to access the filmmaker’s embalmed body, said the newspaper. Stahnsdorf is about 12 miles southwest of central Berlin. The nearby graves of his two brothers were not disturbed. Spiegel Online said some wax residue had been found near the grave, pointing to a possible occult connection.

Christopher Lee: an actor of muscular intelligence with a staggering career | Peter Bradshaw

11 June 2015 4:39 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

From his electrifying roles as Count Dracula, to his venerable turns in Lord of the Rings and Star Wars, Christopher Lee possessed a rare grace and charm

Christopher Lee dies aged 93

ObituaryA career in clips

Christopher Lee’s initial appearance in Dracula, in 1958, was a shock. Before that moment, the fabled vampire was more associated with Max Schreck’s demonic Nosferatu from the classic German silent picture — a pale creature closer to Gollum from today’s Tolkien movies. The vampire was something stunted, bestial, insidious.

"Dance, dance, feel it all around you Dance, dance, dance, Never thought love had a rainbow on it See the girl dance See the girl dance."- Neil Young, "Dance, Dance, Dance"***When I watched Katy Perry’s recent Super Bowl performance I got very excited. There was a lot of shrieking. So much so that my roommate, who had been diligently watching screeners of important art films one floor below, came up to see what was happening.  A friend who was over to watch the game, who I often go to repertory movies with, later told another friend he had never seen me so excited. The third friend watching it with us, she’s a writer, was also excited. In her excitement she sent all of her twitter friends a picture.

Nicolas Cage: The Hollywood Flashback Interview

6 May 2015 3:03 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Interview | See recent The Hollywood Interview news »

It was August, 2005. I knocked on the double door at the Four Seasons. It opened almost immediately. "Hi, I'm Nic," he said, hand outstretched. Nicolas Cage wasn't who I expected him to be. Like all actors, he was smaller and trimmer in person than he appeared on-screen. Neatly dressed in an Armani suit, Cage also displayed none of the manic fervor in real life as had become his signature on-screen. He was thoughtful, well-spoken and incredibly literate in all seven arts. It's an infrequent experience that you leave an interview feeling you've just met someone that you could hang out with regularly, but I got that with Nic Cage, in spades. He was endlessly fascinating, but also kind of a regular guy. Another of my favorite chats I count myself lucky to have been part of.

Guillaume Canet with Next Time I’ll Aim For The Heart (La Prochaine fois je viserai le coeur) director Cédric Anger Photo: Anne-Katrin Titze

Cédric Anger wrote two of the films in the 20th Anniversary of Rendez-Vous with French Cinema in New York, both starring Guillaume Canet. Next Time I’ll Aim For The Heart (La Prochaine Fois Je Viserai Le Coeur), he also directed, and André Téchiné's In The Name of My Daughter, aka French Riviera (L’Homme Qqu’on Aimait Trop), co-stars Adèle Haenel and Catherine Deneuve. Both films take place in the Seventies.

Guillaume Canet as gendarme Franck Neuhart: "He is not the same guy in daylight. He is a man of the night."

Next Time I’ll Aim For The Heart is neither a crime thriller, nor a horror movie, although it is about a serial killer and resembles F.W. Murnau's Nosferatu (Nosferatu, Eine »

Five Moments In Old-school Horror That Even Modern Fans Can Appreciate

15 February 2015 9:48 AM, PST | | See recent Icons of Fright news »

If you’re a diehard horror fan, you no doubt recognize the strides that “classic” horror films took to get us where we are today. While these films are indeed respected, they are often considered hokey, now that the bar for our tolerance of fear has climbed so high in the last 85 or more years. Naturally, as we change as human beings, so do the fears and expectations of each passing generation, be it the result of advances in science, social norms or the general state of humanity. A great example, as much as I find the subtle shadow play and slow-burn dread of John Carpenter’s Halloween terrifying, younger folks may find Rob Zombie’s loose remake/revision to be a much more frightening and socially-relative film with its abrasive depiction of graphic violence. A quality horror film, and what is often recognized as a “classic”, is one that »
