Last week Joy and I watched “Nosferatu” (1922). Nosferatu is the very first Dracula film ever made. I thought the movie was very stylishly directed and shot, and it created a great sense of doom and dread. The scene where Hutter’s wife looks out the window at night and sees Nosferatu staring back at her from his window is very unsettling. I imagine the film must have been terrifically frightening when it was released over 80 years ago. I’m not usually a big fan of horror movies, but this film was so well done, it was hard not to like it. Joy wasn’t too crazy about the film because she thought it was scary, but I definitely enjoyed it.
