Nosferatu

This Independent horror was directed by E. Elias Merhige. The makeup department did an amazing job turning Willem Defoe into the notorious vampire. It would be difficult to tell the two vampires apart. The film also stars John Malkovich, Udo Kier, Cary Ewles, and Eddie Izzard.

The movie was very entertaining and made it possible for me to wonder “what if”, even if for only a moment. The movie is one I would definitely recommend to fans of classical horror.
