Rather than depict Dracula as a shape-shifting monster or debonair gentleman, Murnau's Graf Orlok is a nightmarish, spidery creature with a bulbous head and taloned claws. This is perhaps the most genuinely disturbing incarnation of vampirism

"German expressionist cinema was at its height in the 1920s, and few films embodied the movement as much as Warning Shadows ... a mysterious traveler and illusionist who performs shadow puppetry arrives to provide some entertainment at an otherwise routine dinner party. The host of the party is already mad with jealousy over the presence of his wife's four suitors, but when the puppet show begins, passions overtake reason and reality is not what it appears to be. Shadows, reflections and silhouettes are the dominant imagery ..."--Container notes

Trio of terror( Visual )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Night of the living dead: The radiation from a fallen satellite causes deceased people to rise from the grave and seek the living for food in this classic horror film that launched the career of director George A.

Nosferatu : a symphony of horror( Visual )

3 editions published between 1999 and 2007 in English and German and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An estate agent's clerk (von Wangenheim) leaves his bride (Schroeder) in the city of Bremen to conduct business in the distant Carpathian mountains, with an eccentric client named Graf Orlok (Schreck). However, the closer he gets to his destination, the more terrified become the people he meets. What he finds at Orlok's sinister castle is more horrifying than he could possibly have imagined ... This was the very first film to be based on Bram Stoker's now infamous novel "Dracula". Names and locations were changed but Stoker's estate, who had not given permission for the novel to be filmed, recognised the obvious and alarming similarities and sued the producers. An English judge ordered all copies of the film to be destroyed and the original negative burned. Fortunately for us, prints survived in Germany

Nosferatu, a symphony of horror( Visual )

2 editions published between 1922 and 1986 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first cinematic adaptation of Bram Stoker's novel Dracula received an unexpected publicity boost when Bram Stoker's widow sued the producers for breach of copyright. The resulting controversy increased ticket sales as well as sales of Stoker's novel. Actor Max Schreck's portrait of the vampire Nosferatu, in the first vampire film, became a touchstone for the dozens of imitations that would follow. With his bald head, long talons and gangly silhouette, Schreck's Nosferatu defined the genre for decades. After selling his castle to the hapless real estate agent Hutter, Count Orlok, (the vampire Nosferatu) leaves his native Transylvania and travels by sea to Bremen, in a ship carrying coffins filled with dirt and plague infested rats. When the boat arrives in Bremen without crew or captain, it is clear that they have fallen victim to the insatiable Nosferatu during the course of the voyage. Once in port, the rats invade the city, spreading the plague as they move from house to house. Determined to stop this evil from consuming the city, Hutter's young wife Nina decides to keep the monstrous vampire by her bed until sunrise, when he will melt in the rays of the sun
