SHADOW OF THE VAMPIRE (2000) — John Malkovich and Willem Dafoe star in a riveting suspense thriller about an obsessive director whos so consumed by making the most realistic vampire movie ever, hes willing to sacrifice everything--and everyone-- to achieve his vision! In his quest to create a vampire film to die for, F.W. Murnau (Malkovich) hires the mysterious Max Schreck (Dafoe) to play Count Orlock in his masterpiece Nosferatu. Murnau introduces Schreck as the ultimate method actor--one who will appear only in character, in makeup, at night. But as the cast and crew begin to disappear, it appears that Murnau has made a devils bargain with Schreck, whose dead-on performance is, perhaps, too authentic! With luminous performances and biting humor, Shadow of the Vampire holds you in its icy grip from start to finish. (Rated R 1h 33min.)
