It’s Nosferatu like you’ve never seen it before!
SIFF is screening the 1922 German Expressionist silent horror classic Nosferatu for the masses to kick off the spooky season exceptionally early this year. The film is an unauthorized adaptation of Dracula, with the names changed to avoid copyright infringement and appeal to a German audience. So instead of Dracula, director F.W. Murnau crafted Count Orlock, a long-fingered, pointy-nosed, egg-headed vampire looking to buy property in a German town that happens to be home to a beautiful young woman with a perfect neck. Muhahahaha!
This particular screening of the Nosferatu is special because Austin-based band The Invincible Czars will perform a live score to the film just like in ye olden days. Their acclaimed soundtrack is attuned to modern audiences, reveling in the film’s creepiness while adding a rock attitude to the proceedings. Even though Halloween is more than a month away, The Invincible Czars encourage audience members to come dressed in the ghoulish spirit. And if you’re feeling up to it, stick around for a double feature with the iconic 1920 silent horror film The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, which The Invincible Czars will also be live-scoring. Get all the silent thrills in while you can.
