Horror on the Lens: Nosferatu (dir by F.W. Murnau)


Today’s Horror on the Lens is a classic film that really needs no introduction!  Released in 1922, the German silent film Nosferatu remains one of the greatest vampire films ever made.  It’s a film that we share every October and I’m happy to do so again this year!

Enjoy!

(As well, since I’m going to be reviewing Dracula later today, it seems especially appropriate to start things off with Nosferatu.)

Horror on the Lens: The Golem: How He Came Into The World (dir by Paul Wegener and Carl Boese)

Yesterday, for our Horror on The Lens, we featured It!, a British film what happens when Roddy McDowall discovers the legendary Golem.

Today, we are very proud to present another film about the Golem, one that is definitely held in higher critical regard than It!  (Sorry, Roddy!)  The 1920 German film The Golem: How He Came Into The World is, for lack of a better term, an origin story for the Golem, one that shows how the Golem was originally brought to life to protect the Jewish people from persecution and how it was later corrupted by a combination of the dreaded demon Astaroth and pretty human jealousy.

The Golem is also a landmark of both German Expressionism and horror cinema, a dream-like tribute to both the power of the human imagination and the strength and resilience of the Jewish people.  This is one of those films that everyone should watch at least once.

And yes, it is a silent movie.  So, put your favorite music on in the background and watch The Golem!

This isn’t the first time that we’ve shared the classic 1922 silent vampire film Nosferatu here on the Lens but who cares?  It’s not only one of the most influential films ever made but it’s also something of a Halloween tradition around these parts!  Directed by the great German expressionist F.W. Muranu and featuring an iconic performance from Max Schreck, Nosferatu is a film that everyone should see at least once.

And here’s your chance!
