Catherine Morris loves her husband Kurt so deeply that she subjects him to all kinds of humiliations every single day. Kurt Morris adores his wife so truly, he has planned for Catherine a romantic dinner...with her death as dessert.
Shadow of the Vampire is a film about the making of a German all time classic silent horror-movie from 1922 called Nosferatu-Eine Symphonie des Grauens (Nosferatu-a Symphony of Horror). The production of Nosferatu had to deal with a lot of strange things (some crew members disappeared, some died). This movie focuses on the difficult relationship between Murnau, the director, and Schreck, the lead actor. Written by
The Steamer, a revolutionary machine designed and built to cure the foam prosthetics rapidly due to the very limited production constraints. A world first in foam latex curing within the film industry. See more »
I read a good few reviews/comments about this film on IMDb and although many of them were slightly negative, I disregarded them simply due to the score being 6.8/10 and having read the plot, it seemed highly interesting and entertaining.
Having watched it, expecting this to be an excellent piece of filmography with the likes of Dafoe, Malkovich and Kier playing lead roles(and Nick Cage as producer in there for kicks) I was extremely disappointed. In fact, I fell asleep just after Dafoe came waltzing in onto the screen. This must be one of the most boring and over rated films of all time! I wasn't expecting a gorish horror film, but nor was I expecting a film with an intro lasting several minutes long panning around a piece of colourless art! It's not artistic, it's boring!
Oh, and did anyone else notice the German accents the actors used fading towards the end? Maybe they got bored too.
