A film investigator's uncovering of the private diary of Friedrich Wilhelm Murnau leads him to discover the secret hidden beneath the history of Nosferatu, a secret related to a mysterious group seeking the secret of eternal life.
In 1922, filmmaker Friedrich W. Murnau directed his own version of the classic horror novel Dracula. Years later, the film was destroyed due to copyright reasons. However, several copies survived. When Icarus Sherrinford, a film restorer, attempts to recover the film, he discovers a long hidden plot to achieve eternal life. Written by
("The 12th hour") is a quirky and interesting short movie who explores the mysteries behind the making of a classic horror movie, "Nosferatu" (Murnau's bizarre adaptation of "Dracula").Two young Spanish filmmakers Rodrigo Plaza and Juanma Ruiz wrote and directed it...and everything else. Rodrigo worked as production designer. His home became one of the sets. His father and grandfather made the props you can see on screen, including Murnau's diary or Sherrinford's phonograph. Juanma edited the movie. Both of the directors worked as cinematographers as well. It's was shown at Alcine (Alcalá Henares Film Festival, in Madrid) last Sunday. A must see movie if you like Polanski's "The Ninth gate" or Peter Jackson's "Forgotten silver".
