The silent film Nospheratu: A Symphony of Horror directed by Friedrich Wilhelm Murnau went down in history as the first significant work in the genre. Frames showing a terrifying vampire wandering in the gloomy spaces of his castle arouse anxiety to this day, not only among the audience of the younger generation. The story of the disturbing bloodsucker will be enriched with a live organ improvisation by Filip Presseisen.

Created a hundred years ago, Nospheratu: A Symphony of Horror is one of the first horror films in the history of cinema. It was based on a modified plot of Dracula, the novel by Bram Stoker. The vampire Nosferatu, Count Orlok, is played by Max Schreck. The actor portrayed the character so authentically that his acting was the subject of fierce debates, and his name became synonymous with evil – the German word schreck means “fear”. There were also rumours in that Schreck never took off his costume during filming and slept in a wooden box, which caused even greater anxiety around the actor. The plot tells the story of Thomas Hutter, who, bid farewell by his beloved wife Ellen, goes on a journey to Transylvania, where he soon arrives at Orlok’s castle. He is planning to offer him to buy a house in Wisborg at the behest of his employer Knock. However, there is no awareness that Knock uses black magic and that his potential client is a vampire. Upon arriving at his castle, Hutter realizes that he is trapped by a formidable, demonic Nosferatu.
