Nosferatu (1922)


On the hundredth anniversary of F. W. Murnau's NOSFERATU (1922), Mike and Dan talk about the film's staying power and the thrill of watching dozens of cinematic conventions being invented before your eyes. The characters are like people watching horror movies, trying to remain logical while feeling uneasy or disturbed. Alien, Jaws, Rear Window, Niagra, The Witch and even COVID-19 all enter the conversation. So levitate out of that coffin and give it a listen!
