Hello you spooky cheapskates! As you may have figured by now, I’m a big supporter of Vanderbilt’s International Film Series. They pick some pretty interesting movies that you might not have ever had the chance to see before. Well, Halloween will be no different. This time the film is Nosferatu a movie that was filmed in Germany in 1922 as an unauthorized adaptation of Dracula.
This is a classic movie that you’ve probably never seen but have, without a doubt, seen bits of (that is, if you watch The History of Vampires on the History Channel late at night like I’m known to do). Unlike pretty much every vampire in a movie ever, including Blacula (which you can pay to see at the Belcourt at 11pm on Halloween) Nosferatu is freaking hideous, the Elephant Man of vampires. I mean, just look at that picture. The Crypt Keeper is sexier than that dude. I know that people usually like their vampires to be all debonair and crap, like that pretty-boy from Twilight, but I think that this is more nightmare-inducing, and isn’t that what Halloween is all about?
Anyway, the movie is at 7pm in the Sarratt Cinema, which is located on the first floor of the Sarratt Student Center at Vanderbilt University.Also, it’s a silent film, and the original musical score will be performed live by the Rats and People Motion Picture Orchestra.
Bring your costumes. It’s gonna be a paaarrrtay!
