Nosferatu + live music from Somerset Brides of Dracula
October 31, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
Voted 7th on The Guardian’s list of the “25 Best Horror Films of all time” in 2010, this 1922 German silent horror movie is a classic in its genre, influencing so many horror movies and characters since. It even has its own website www.nosferatumovie.com.
Illegally adapted from Bram Stoker’s novel Dracula, Nosferatu was originally meant to disappear when, following Stoker’s wife’s legal battle, the German Court ordered all copies of the film destroyed. Luckily surviving copies have made their way to the US and the UK, boosting the reputation of the movie (that could come back to life like vampires!)
The movie was first released with a live orchestra playing. The original soundtrack has been lost, but many pieces and styles of music have since been composed since. For this special evening, The Somerset Brides of Dracula will be playing.
The Premiere’s movie in Berlin was followed by a renowned costume party. For this reason, and to celebrate Halloween, you are more than welcome to dress up in your favourite costume for the evening.
