Shadow Of The Vampire (2000) Max Schreck's performance in the classic film Nosferatu has become legendary. What if the reason he was so good is that he really was a vampire? That's the premise of this film, which features director F.W. Murnau so enamored with creating the perfect vampire film that he seeks out an actual member of the undead to play the title role. But when Schreck starts taking more and more advantage of the opportunities to feed he suddenly has, can Murnau come to his senses and destroy him?

More Movie Taglines:
  • An Unspeakable Horror. A Creative Genius. Captured For Eternity.
Movie Quote(s):
  • F.W. Murnau: Why him, you monster? Why not the... script girl? Max Schreck: Oh. The script girl. I'll eat her later.
  • F.W. Murnau: I will not allow you to destroy my picture! Max Schreck: This is hardly your picture any longer.
  • Max Schreck: Did I kill one of your people, Murnau? I can't remember.
  • Murnau: They don't need to act. They need to *be*.
  • F.W. Murnau: If it's not in frame, it doesn't exist!
Movie Trivia:
  • The locomotive that conveys the film crew to Czechoslovakia is named "Charon". In Greek myth, Charon was the ferryman who conveyed the souls of the dead across the river Styx.
  • The part of Max Schreck was written specifically for Willem Dafoe
  • Max Schreck (Willem Dafoe) recites Tennyson's poem 'Tithonus' at one point: 'The woods decay, the woods decay and fall, the vapors weep their burthen to the ground...' This is apropos, because the poem is about a character from Greek mythology who was immortal even though he continued to age. Just like Schreck, this made him a tragic figure.
  • Cary Elwes has now starred in two film interpretations concerning Dracula, the other being Dracula (1992)
  • The music played on the phonograph to set the mood for the actors in some of the scenes is the soundtrack of Dracula (1979) written by John Williams.
