Shadow of the VampireShadow of the Vampire
• “Some movies you do for capitalistic reasons... others you do because you really want to make a contribution.” So says John Malkovich of his role as director FW Murnau in Elias Merhige’s fantasia on the making of the classic vampire film Nosferatu.

We examine the new picture and meet its director, producer and eclectic cast, including Willem Dafoe as Max Schreck and Eddie Izzard as Gustav.
Plus our poster - Willem Dafoe stars as Max Schreck, the larger-than-life star of Shadow of the Vampire!

Murnau's NosferatuNosferatu
