Nosferatu the Vampire
Dir. F.W. Murnau (1922).
The first, uncredited adaptation of Bram Stokers Dracula is a memorably atmospheric horror film awash with free-floating German phobias about mysterious bloodsuckers from the East. Murnaus direction defined open-air expressionism while the aptly named Max Schreck made an indelible manifestation as the undead count.
