  • Germany
  • 1h 34min
  • PG
  • Directed by: F W Murnau
  • Cast: Max Schreck, Gustav von Wangenheim, Greta Schröder, Alexander Granach, Ruth Landshoff, Wolfgang Heinz

Schreck is a truly terrifying figure as Bram Stoker's famous vampire, looking more like a skinned bat than a human being. A wonderfully visual movie, with twisted shadows and sexual undercurrents placing it well above the Kinski/Herzog remake.

  • Cast: Simon Pegg, Kate Ashfield, Lucy Davis, Nick Frost, Dylan Moran, Bill Nighy, Penelope Wilton, Peter Serafinowicz, Jessica Stevenson

The team behind the cult TV series 'Spaced' venture into film with a likeable zom-rom-com that pits a bunch of London slackers against the undead. Pleasingly puerile.
