Nosferatu: The Death Mass

For mature readers only. At first glance, it’s the same old story: a pair of young women arrive at a creepy castle and are instructed not to go out to the graveyard lest some terrible evil befall them. Naturally, the shadowy Nosferatu is lurking about, and begins to exert his strange control over the women, causing them to do his bidding. The chief command: that a death mass be composed in his honor that he might be remembered for all ages.

But then, about four pages in, the adults-only nature of the series becomes clear as the women begin to fantasize about (and conduct) explicit sexual acts of every variety with themselves, a platoon of female vampires, and the risen dead. All of this is lavishly illustrated in woodcut style by Holden and Shelley Morris. It’s hard to know whether to condemn the series for its depravity, or praise it for the obvious effort and craftsmanship in which it renders its subject matter. -- Atomic Avenue

From the Library

As the 20th century evolved, rational man turned to science to explain mythology that had pervaded for thousands of years. How could a man be mistaken for a vampire? How could someone appear to have been the victim of a vampire attack? Science, in time, came back with answers that may surprise you.Anemia
A million fancies strike you when you hear the name: Nosferatu!N O S F E R A T Udoes not die!What do you expect of the first showing of this great work?Aren't you afraid? - Men must die. But legend has it that a vampire, Nosferatu, 'der Untote' (the Undead), lives on men's blood! You want to see a symphony of horror? You may expect more. Be careful. Nosferatu is not just fun, not something to be taken lightly. Once more: beware.- Publicity for Nosferatu in the German magazine Buhne und Film, 1922
