The Electric Film Series continues at the Electric Theater on Tuesday, February 15th, at 6 PM (Doors at 5:30 PM) with a special 100th-anniversary screening of a vampire opus from the 1920s;
F.W. Murnau’s legendary tale of vampirism features a haunting performance by Max Schreck as Count Orlok, the mysterious proprietor of a Transylvanian castle. “Nosferatu” is heavily inspired by Bram Stoker's “Dracula,” so much so, in fact, that the Stoker estate actually took offense to Murnau’s film. Still, this iconic silent classic has become the stuff of legend having inspired a well-liked Werner Herzog-helmed redo starring Klaus Kinski in the 70s as well as “Shadow of the Vampire,” a 2000-released biopic starring John Malkovich as Murnau and Willem Dafoe as Schreck. Come out to the Electric Theater and experience the birth of the cinematic vampire by way of this glorious 100th-anniversary celebration.
FMASU’s screening of “Nosferatu” will include an intro by film historian and JakCine Entertainment founder, Jason Jackson. A very knowledgeable Jackson will also be back following the movie for an insightful post-screening discussion.
