Nosferatu, a Retelling

A film that was part of the German Expressionism movement, and was originally made without prior approval. It was based off of the novel, Dracula by Bram Stoker, with some changes made. This film is a silent film that has been widely influential over the years even though its conception and distribution were almost lost forever. After a court dispute involving Stoker’s family, the film had been ordered to be destroyed.

Over the years, Nosferatu has had its fair amount of touch in popular culture. It has gone from appearing  in film and television to even inspiring music. This film, released on March 4 1922 in Germany, was directed by F. W. Murnau with screenplay by Henry Galeen and music by Hans Erdmann. The film was also a silent film part of the horror genre and a movement that was made up of films that were highly representative of a unique style all on its own.

The Witch, another film that has caught a lot of attention this year, 2016. More specifically the director and about his future projects. In an interview with Indiewire, Egger revealed that on his slate was a new Nosferatu film. The interview goes on about his history with the film and what it means to him to now be on the verge of remaking it.
