Hey guys, Jana here,


One of my favorite stories is getting a remake and I’m excited for this one. I know, I’m notorious for trashing remakes but this one gets a wide pass on my end. ‘Nosferatu‘ is coming back with new technology to scare the hell out of a newer generation!


If you know the Bram Stoker story of ‘Dracula‘, you know the tale of Nosferatu. A naive and young man is sent to Transylvania to do business with Count Orlok, he is thwarted by the locals he encounters in his trek to the mysterious castle. He hears dozens of warnings and picks up a book on vampires, out of curiosity. Upon meeting Count Orlok and observing the unusual occurrences, he reads the book discovering what his host truly is. The story continues closer to the young man’s home than he would like.

The remake is being headed up by Jeff Robinov’s Studio 8 with Robert Eggers to write and direct what will be an adaptation of F.W. Murnau’s 1922 silent film classic. Jay Van Hoy & Lars Knudsen’s Parts and Labor are producing what should be a truly chilling film.


After watching the original ‘Nosferatu‘, I highly recommend checking out ‘Shadow of the Vampire‘ which takes the making of the silent film into particular close view. Willem S. Dafoe plays Max Schreck, the actor that starred as Orlok while John Malkovich plays director F.W. Murnau. What makes the story intriguing is the scenario that Schreck was so good at playing a vampire, because he may not be entirely human to begin with. It’s a fantastic watch!

Movie Quotes

Captain Miller:
Well when I think of home, I... I think of something specific. I think of my, my hammock in the backyard or my wife pruning the rosebushes in a pair of my old work gloves.
Private Ryan:
This, this one night, two of my brothers came and woke me up in the middle of the night. And they said they had a surprise for me. So they took me to the barn up in the loft and there was my oldest brother, Dan, with Alice, Alice Jardine. I mean, picture a girl who just took a nosedive from the ugly tree and hit every branch coming down. And... and Dan's got his shirt off and he's working on this bra and he's tryin to get it off and all of a sudden Shawn just screams out, "Danny you're a young man, don't do it!" And so Alice Jardine hears this and she screams and she jumps up and she tries to get running out of the barn but she's still got this shirt over her head. She goes running right into the wall and knocks herself out. So now Danny's just so mad at us. He, he starts coming after us, but... but at the same time Alice is over there unconscious. He's gotta wa... , wake her up. So he grabs her by a leg and he's drag, dragging her. At the same time he picks up a shovel. And he's going after Shawn, and Shawn's saying, "What are you trying to hit me for? I just did you a favor!" And so this makes Dan more angry. He tries to swing this thing, he looses the shovel, goes outta his grasp and hits a kerosene lantern; the thing explodes, the whole barn almost goes up because of this thing. That was it. That was the last, that was, Dan went off to basic the next day. That was the last night the four of us were together. That was two years ago. Tell me about your wife and those rosebushes?
Captain Miller:
No, no that one I save just for me.
