a question by Nov 30, 2010

It's a common misconception that the 1922 silent horror film "Nosferatu" was the first vampire movie. In fact, it was the first adaptation of the novel "Dracula" by Bram Stoker. What was the first true vampire film?

Indeed, it is believed by many film scholars to be "Vampire of the Coast" made in 1909. However, it's hard to know for sure since many silent films have been lost and often the word vampire was used in that era to denote a femme fatale rather than used correctly as a term for a blood-sucking night creature.

Somebody should make a notation of that On good ol'Wikipedia--they're still claiming NOSFERATU, along with everyone else. And then ther's VAMPIRES OF THE COAST...or something like that. I think 09 is right on the first fil with this one a year or two later.

Are they? LOL! Wikipedia needs better experts on silent films.
