An imaginatively twisted lesson in film history and a glorious gothic comedy-drama.

Wholly absorbing and inspired in parts, this carefully crafted curio dares to suggest that Murnau made a Faustian pact with an actual vampire to play the title role in exchange for the neck of the film's leading lady at production's end.

Through layers of makeup depicting the rat-faced, undead Schreck, a vampire who turns not into a bat but, worse, a demanding prima donna, Dafoe doesn't go over the top, though he does plant his flag at the summit.

Incredibly entertaining even without knowledge of Nosferatu.

In this cookie cutter movie world, it's nice to see the occasional move that doesn't quite fit into a specific genre or can't easily be classified.

What might have occurred during the filming of Nosferatu leaves one amused but confused about how much of Shadow is a spoof and how much is based in truth.

Horror is as old as movie pictures, but this film shows it still holds dark depths to explore.

Film Threat

Impresses on most every conceivable level: as a pure film, as wild, speculative storytelling, and, like Murnau's own Nosferatu, a benchmark ranking among the most ingenious vampire movies ever crafted.

There's enough fun in this to make it worth seeing, and Dafoe's performance is a must-see.
