Shadow of the Vampire

Shadow of the Vampire

2000 • R • Horror, Drama, Award Winning

The crew begin to disappear on the set of a vampire movie.

WHY WE PICKED IT: This clever reimagining of a classic manages to be both a compelling vampire story as well as a darkly funny, meta take on movie making.

German director F.W. Murnau wants to make a horror movie, but may have cast a real vampire in the lead role. In this nod to Murnau's classic 'Nosferatu', John Malkovich plays the director while Willem Dafoe takes the place of actor/vampire Max Schreck. 

DIRECTOR: E. Elias Merhige

CAST: John Malkovich, Willem Defoe, Cary Elwes, Udo Kier, Eddie Izzard
