  1. Interested in more? For your consideration:

    Nosferatu – 1922 classic silent German Expressionist film starring Max Schreck (brilliant use of shadows in lieu of “real” special effects)

    Shadow of the Vampire – Fictional account of the making of “Nosferatu” starring John Malkovich, Willem Defoe, and other great actors.

    Frankenstein – the first one, starring Boris Karloff. Hey, if you’re in a classic horror movie kick, just keep the train rolling with this awesome movie. If it weren’t for Lugosi’s amazing performance as Dracula, I would probably like Frankenstein better. Bonus tidbit: Lugosi was the first choice to play Frankenstein, but turned in down.

    Dracula (1992) with Gary Oldman, Keanu Reeves, Winona Ryder, Anthony Hopkins, and one of my personal faves, Tom Waits as Renfield.

    Ed Wood – A movie starring Johnny Depp as “worst director of all time” Ed Wood and Martin Landau as elderly Bela Lugosi. I’m not sure how much artistic license they take, but a lot of it is based off of true events. Landau won the Academy Award for portraying horror legend Lugosi. Great movie! Also features Bill Murray and Sarah Jessica Parker.

    Bram Stoker’s book that the movie is based off of. Great read! But who wants to read a book? NERD!

  2. Glad to see you guys are reviewing the classics along with the more recent ones. This one never gets old and ‘Nosferatu’ is another good suggestion you had. You guys are doing a great job. Keep it up!

  3. I have an original poster from 1931 of the bloody terror of Transylvania. how much is it worth and where can I sell it?
