I agree on the fact that Nosferatu will remain THE vampire movie for exellence and probably the most important horror film ever. But I would also consider two other films which I believe could easily take the second and the third place as true vampire movies after Murnau's one, and those are: Herzog's homage to Nosferatu (with an incredibly sober Kinski) and Alfredson's Let the Right One in (with probably one of the most original, tragic and genuine undead that ever walked on scene that is Eli). How's that? I didn't bore ye, did I? Oh, by the way, your rendition of the original rodent-like Nosferatu in this art is truly impressive. Job well done, sir.
I saw your piece a few days ago and it inspired an epic win on my behalf.
I was trapped waiting for people at a movie theater last weekend when the new "Twilight" movie was premiering. I was sick of the matching pink-and-black "Team Edward" and "Team Jacob" T-shirts, so I broke into my sketchbook and made myself a TEAM NOSFERATU sign and pinned it to my jacket.
I got a lot of Huh? but two belly laughs and a hi-five.
