This Halloween relive the chilling terror of Nosferatu with a special screening at Theatre Deli.
Premiered in Germany over 100 years ago, the legacy of this seminal film is seen far and wide throughout the horror genre.
Thomas Hutter is tasked by his employer to visit the mysterious Count Orlok at his castle about a potential property purchase.
The eerie Orlok seeks to buy a house in Hutter's town of Wisborg. Hutter bids his wife, Ellen, farewell and makes way to the castle as a series of strange events occur.
This screening will be underscored with live classical music by Liz Hanks (cello) and Jonny Best (piano) for a unique and spine chilling atmosphere.
Part of the Northern Silent Film Festival. “...Nosferatu” remains effective: 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.” ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ Robert Ebert
