Vampires of the Night


No votes yet

Its title notwithstanding, Greene Photoplay Company's Vampires of the Night was not a horror film. Running five reels (approximately one hour), the story begins as a condemned prisoner writes his wife to apprise her of his situation. Upon learning of her hubby's fate, the wife fears that she will no longer be able to care for her child; accordingly, the kid is left in the care of the wife's aging crone of a mother. Seeking a better life for the child, the old lady smuggles her granddaughter into the home of a Duke and Duchess, stealing the noble family's baby in exchange. The story then jumps ahead several years, and the Duke and Duchess have raised the condemned man's child as their own, while their natural daughter has been brought up by the old lady, who has since become head of an outlaw gang known as the Vampires of the Night. Inevitably, the destinies of the exchanged girls are again intertwined, leading to a slam-bang finale. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide

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
