Toronto, Ont. : Lions Gate Films Home Entertainment, c2000, 2003.
This riveting suspense thriller is about the filming of Nosferatu and the difficult relationship between F.W. Murnau and Max Schreck. As cast and crew begin to disappear, it seems that Murnau has made a devil's bargain with Schreck, whose performance is too authentic.
Special features: behind-the-scenes look at the making of the film, feature commentary with the director, interviews with Willem Dafoe, Elias Merhige and Nicolas Cage, photograph gallery, theatrical trailer, production notes and cast and filmmaker bios and Make-up Montage and Photo Montage.
Consensus: Shadow of the Vampire is frightening, compelling, and funny, and features an excellent performance by Willem Dafoe.
