Nosferatu: A Symphony of Horror
SPACE is proud to team with the Friends of the Kotzschmar Organ as they present organist Tom Trenney, returning for Halloween Silent Film Night to accompany the German Expressionist film Nosferatu: A Symphony of Horror. Released in 1922 as the first film adaptation of Bram Stoker’s Dracula (with names changed due to studio copyright issues), Nosferatu is as haunting as they come and is still recognized today as one of the most chilling vampire films of all time.
In this highly influential silent horror film, the mysterious Count Orlok (Max Schreck) summons Thomas Hutter (Gustav von Wangenheim) to his remote Transylvanian castle in the mountains. The eerie Orlok seeks to buy a house near Hutter and his wife, Ellen (Greta A Schroeder). After Orlok reveals his vampire nature, Hutter struggles to escape the castle, knowing that Ellen is in grave danger. Meanwhile Orlok’s servant, Knock (Alexander Granach), prepares for his master to arrive at his home.
