Nosferatu (with Live Score)
Join us as Nashville-based electronic/ambient artists Dream Chambers, Eve Maret, and Belly Full Of Stars present their live synth score to F.W. Murnau’s groundbreaking NOSFERATU, commissioned by the Belcourt Theatre for the film’s 2022 centennial.
An unauthorized adaptation of Bram Stoker’s Dracula, NOSFERATU remains to many viewers the most unsettling vampire film ever made, and its bald, spidery vampire (personified by the diabolical Max Schreck) continues to spawn imitations in the realm of contemporary cinema. This cornerstone of the horror film tradition has been resurrected in an HD edition mastered from the acclaimed 35mm restoration by Friedrich-Wilhelm-Murnau-Stiftung, offering unprecedented visual clarity and historical faithfulness to the original release version.
“It doesn’t scare us, but it haunts us. It shows not that vampires can jump out of shadows, but that evil can grow there, nourished on death.” – Roger Ebert
