Nosferatu, a Symphony of Terror

  • Type: Film
  • Length: 94 minutes

Nosferatu, a Symphony of Terror is a 1929, silent, German film by director F W Murnau. Since the film was an unauthorized adaptation of Bram Stoker's Dracula, the names were changed, but the fundamental story is the same. Bram Stoker's heirs won a lawsuit that destroyed most prints of the film, but at least one survived and the film became a cinematic masterpiece. - AsNotedIn
