Shadow of the Vampire

Geregisseerd door E. Elias Merhige
Luxemburg, Verenigde Staten, 2000
Drama, Komedie, Horror


The filming of Nosferatu and the difficult relationship between F.W. Murnau and Max Schreck cast the backdrop, as cast and crew begin to disappear, while Murnau has seemingly made a devil’s bargain with Schreck, whose performance is too authentic.

What I dislike most about Shadow of the Vampire is how it cannibalizes an earlier movie for no apparent reason. This stupid and demeaning fantasy about the shooting of F.W. Murnau’s 1922 masterpiece Nosferatu is a piece of postmodernist kitsch whose only redeeming quality is an enjoyably over-the-top, eye-rolling performance by Willem Dafoe as Max Schreck, the actor playing the lead vampire, Count Orlock.
