I have my problems with the silent movie classic Nosferatu (1922). Max Schreck is not one of them. He has an eerie presence that no other film vampire has come closed to matching. I don’t know if this behind-the-scenes photo of Schreck sitting by a tree was staged for publicity reasons, but it sure as hell is creepy. It’s so off-putting that it might’ve added some credence to the myth that Schreck was actually a vampire, if I didn’t already know better.
