Chad B. (abrnt1) from CABERY, IL
Reviewed on 5/23/2011...
This film is amazing. The premise is one of the most unique I've seen in ages. What if during the making of Nosferatu the actor playing the vampire was an actual vampire. Willem Dafoe's performance as the vampire & John Malkovich's performance as the director r very entertaining. Actual footage from the silent classic is used in a very effective way. Creepy and darkly funny.
