The greatest horror film of all! A long time ago in middle Europe, a decrepit, forbidding castle stood. Casting an ominous shadow over the townspeople who dare not look upon it, the unholy dwelling is home to one Count Orlok (Max Schreck), an undead night creature with a taste for human blood.

Now available in this gorgeous newly remastered and rescored by The Silent Orchestra in 5.1 audio. The film that inspired the film "Shadow of the Vampire." A promotional film poster
