Although not approved by Bram Stoker’s estate (which ended up suing and bankrupting the film’s production company), this unofficial adaptation of Dracula still holds up as one of the earliest, eeriest examples of vampire cinema. F. W. Murnau’s unauthorized adaptation of Dracula was an imaginative revision of the vampire story that helped define the genre. In many ways, Nosferatu is the Citizen Kane of horror.
