This silent film is the archetype of vampire films, founded on the legend of Bram Stoker’s Dracula.
The visual effects used by Murnau, the accelerated movements of Orlok’s servant, the disappearance of the ghostly stagecoach, and the appearance of the count emerging from darkness provoke anxiety and unease, accentuated by the yellow or blue tint of the film.

Directed by Friedrich W. Murnau, 1922
With Max Schreck, Gustav von Wangenheim, Greta Schroeder
Duration: 1h12


Film proposed as part of the exhibition Franz Marc / August Macke. The adventure of the Blue Rider
