” Is this your wife? What a lovely throat!”
Nosferatu (1922) screens Thursday September 3rd at 7:00pm at Schlafly Bottleworks
Released in 1922, Nosferatu was essentially an unofficial adaptation of Bram Stoker’s 1897 novel. Disguising the film under different names and details, this Dracula story portrays Count Orlock negotiating a move to Bremen in Germany with realtor Thomas Hutter, and like the plagued-diseased rats of history, Count Orlock is a harbinger of death, bringing a great darkness with him in as he obsessively pursues the neck of Hutter’s wife and brings death and menace to the people of Bremen.
Masterfully directed by F W Murnau, Nosferatu features timeless images of the nocturnal blood sucker gravitating through the shadows – the epitome being the iconic shot of the shadow ascending the stairs, as one with the dark – an image that will send chills down your spine. Max Schreck’s Count Orlock grotesques all »

Is ITV really going to bring back Cold Feet?
That's the rumour, with the broadcaster apparently looking to plug the Downton-shaped hole in its schedule with a revival of the popular comedy-drama.
If it's true, they'll have a job bringing the cast back together - some have gone on to be huge telly and film stars, while others have stepped out of the spotlight entirely...
Nesbitt's carefree lothario Adam Williams met his match in Helen Baxendale's Rachel - the couple overcame infidelity and infertility but were denied lasting happiness when Rachel was killed in a traffic accident.
Since Cold Feet wrapped, Nesbitt has become one of British television's most in-demand leading men.
He fronted BBC One's gritty cop series Murphy's Law from 2003-07, led Steven Moffat's supernatural thriller Jekyll - also in 2007 - and played the title character in ITV's short-lived medical drama Monroe (2011-12).

The Deauville American Film Festival is set to pay homage to American star Keanu Reeves during its 41st edition which is set to take place Sept.4-14.
As part of the tribute, Deauville will host a retrospective of Reeves’s most popular movies.
“Forever Neo from ‘Matrix,’ Jonathan Harker in ‘Dracula’ or Le Chevalier Danceny in ‘Dangerous Liaisons,’ Keanu Reeves has demonstrated his ability to take on extremely varied roles during his long and impressive movie career. He has worked with directors such as Gus Van Sant, Francis Ford Coppola, Bernardo Bertolucci and more recently Richard Linklater,” the festival said.
Reeves, who will be present in Deauville, made his directorial debut on Chinese/U.S. co-production “Man of Tai Chi,” a martial arts drama inspired by the life of stuntman Tiger Chen that came out in 2013.

While not a perfect movie, Bram Stoker's Dracula holds a special place in my horror heart and it's a movie I often revisit. Unfortunately, the old Blu-ray was lacking, but Sony Pictures Home Entertainment is rectifying that just in time for Halloween with an all-new 4K restoration:

While watching it over and over on Netflix streaming seems good enough, it’s not. You need a quality Blu-ray release of Francis Ford Coppola’s Bram Stoker’s Dracula to really enjoy this comic book-esque horror tale that’s both bizarre and colorful. There’s tons of deep colors in Dracula, including a lot of blacks, which makes this […] »

Reflections in Blood: Francis Ford Coppola »
Aside from Keanu Reeves being horribly miscast as Jonathan Harker, Bram Stoker’s Dracula from Francis Ford Coppola remains one of our favorite tellings of the classic vampire tale. Finally Sony has announced it’s getting a Blu-ray and DVD Edition to… Continue Reading →

Making a vampire movie in Hollywood is pretty cliche. If you want to make a Dracula movie, the results are beginning to get harder and harder to make unique (see the lackluster reception for Dracula Untold last year). So, if you want to try and tell a distinct story inspired by Bram Stoker's classic character, you would be hard pressed to find an original idea. So, why not remake the most unusual version of the...

“Rats. Rats. Rats! Thousands! Millions of them! All red blood! All these will I give you if you will obey me!”
Dracula (1931) screens Thursday August 6th at 7:00pm at Schlafly Bottleworks
Ladies fainted in their seats when Bela Lugosi rose from his coffin as a vampire in the 1927 Broadway stage production of “Dracula” that preceded Tod Browning’s timeless 1931 film version that had an equally chilling effect on movie audiences. Playwright Hamilton Deane based his lean script on Bram Stoker’s famous 1897 novel, and introduced horror to talkies. Dwight Frye’s gonzo performance as Renfield, the hapless Brit accountant who first sets foot inside Dracula’s foreboding castle, set the film’s tone of ghoulish insanity. For the well-established lead, Bela Lugosi is positively blood-curdling as he stalks every scene. With his thick native Hungarian accent and dapper tuxedo and cape, Lugosi forever defined the title character. The way he looks, »

Released in 1922, Nosferatu: A Symphony of Horror was an unauthorised adaptation of Bram Stoker’s Dracula, with Max Schreck starring as the hideous Count Orlock. The film was previously remade in 1979, with Wener Herzog directing and Klaus Kinski starring in the lead role.

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, »

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. »

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.
Eggers has already signed a deal with Studio 8 and is attached to direct “The Knight” for the studio.
Eggers, Van Hoy and Knudsen are repped by Wme.

Juliet Landau appeared on 17 of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer's" 144 episodes ... but man, did she make an impression. Joining the show in Season Two as one half of a killer couple, Landau's Drusilla and her on-screen love Spike (James Marsters) proved to be two of the titular character's most memorable foes. And, like her immortal character on the beloved series, the fandom love for the show never dies "The show has such a massive following. It seems to grow and grow and grow and people love to watch it over and over or bring their families into it," she tells toofab's Brian Particelli. "It’s amazing. and people are still really avid about it, it’s wonderful." But there is a line between "avid fan" and slight obsession. "I met a young woman who legally changed her name to Drusilla Summers," Landau exclaims. "She's got Dru and Buffy's last name, »

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. »

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. »
The horror movie genre is more popular than ever, with its influence felt right across popular culture like a blood spatter from a slashed artery. Audiences are happy to suspend disbelief and strap themselves in for a good old frightfest, a sensory rollercoaster ride that’ll make eyes pop out of sockets and bathrooms get frequently used. However, sometimes there’s an element that just doesn’t sit right amongst the mayhem. More often than not, that factor is the lead actor or actress!
Does it matter if there are plenty of heads flying around, or if you’re stuffing a cushion into your face every thirty seconds? Well, yes. Even if the film is really delivering the gory goods, that mismatched central figure can really start to bug you. What were the producers thinking? Give it some time and the true terror may turn out to be »
