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
When Greta is lying on the bed looking in the mirror at herself and terrified that Max Schreck has no reflection in the mirror, her own movements do not match with her movements that are reflected in the mirror. See more »
Dafoe's acting prowess was well wasted on this movie. Very dull as there were so many scenes that dragged on agonizingly. This movie is not for movie fans, but rather for movie actors, critics, directors and the like. You can easily find a better thing to do than watch this movie.
