Nosferatu, the 1922 classic silent film starring Max Schreck, photographed by Fritz Arno Wagner, and directed by F. W. Murnau, is known as one of the greatest vampire films in history. Unofficially based on the novel Dracula, the film almost never came to light due to a heated legal battle with Bram Stoker’s widow, Florence. Even with minor changes, Nosferatu still violated copyright laws and all copies of the legendary film were ordered to be destroyed – but, they weren’t, which is why we still have the eerie film today. And now, not only can you still watch this movie, but you can watch it in 3D.
Quality Cheese Productions has created a 3D version of the film and titled it Orlok the Vampire. Their original 3D version of Nosferatu was released a few years ago, but they’re back with a new version that will come out October 16, 2012.
“Orlok-The Vampire is a newly restored 3D version of Nosferatu. This never before seen print is an eerie and disturbing adaptation of Bram Stokers Dracula.
Shortly after its 1922 premiere, Murnau’s masterpiece became the subject of a bitter lawsuit. As a result, all known copies of this bloodsucking classic were destroyed.
Or so it was believed…
Ninety years later, Quality Cheese Productions unleashes this unnerving stereoscopic nightmare. Prepare yourself for a filmic feeding frenzy of fright!”
Special Features Include:
- 3D Version
- 2D Version
- Two Pairs of Anaglyphic 3D Glasses
- Introduction by Lloyd Kaufman
