Orlok The Vampire 3D

There is nothing more exciting than to sit down to watch a good horror flick with a bowl of hot buttered popcorn and a tall glass of cold coca-cola and trying to keep from spilling it all when a scary scene comes up making you jump. I have loved horror movies since I was a kid, unfortunately it is not a taste in movies that my husband I share so I have to stay up at night alone if I am going to be able to watch them.

Normally in a horror flick you sit on pins and needles not knowing if the next scene will make you jump out of your skin or scream out in tears from fear, but in this movie, Orlok The Vampire 3D you have a great mixture of horror along with laughter, to where you don’t know whether you should be laughing or crying. The 3D effects really add a fresh new perspective to a film.

The DVD includes an introduction by TROMA sensation Lloyd Kaufman, creator of the Toxic Avenger and you will also receive two pairs of 3D glasses to be able to enjoy the full effects of the movie.

In the film Max Schreck is back with his finest fang-to-flesh classic. Orlok The Vampire 3D is a restored version of Murnau’s Nosferatu. This never -before-seen print is an eerie and disturbing adaptation of Bram Stoker’s Dracula. Shortly after its 1922 premiere, Murnau’s masterpiece became the subject of a bitter lawsuit. As a result all known copies of this blood sucking classic were destroyed... or so it was believed.

Eighty-seven years later Quality Cheese Productions unleashes this unnerving stereoscopic nightmare. Prepare for a filmic feeding frenzy of fright.

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
