F.W. Murnau’s 1922 silent movie Nosferatu, is one of the most iconic vampire films ever made and is based on Bram Stroker’s Dracula. It’s influenced many films over the years with its brilliant creepy tone. The original soundtrack was composed by Hans Erdmann and was lost over a century ago. Ever since then, the film has been remade and several musicians have done their own scores on the story, but nothing comes to close to what is happening in the newest version of the film Nosferatu: The Non Silent Film.
The silent film was made in 1922 and follows the story of Vampire Count Orlok (Max Schreck) who expresses interest in a new residence and real estate agent Hutter’s wife.
The non-silent film was put together AlmapBBDO, using Getty’s sound library, which is something we never knew existed until now and it’s incredible. Check out the trailer down below.
Den of Geek says:
“Nosferatu starred Max Schreck as Count Orlok, who has communicated nonverbally for over 100 years. Nosferatu: The Non Silent Film gives the characters voice. They filmmakers create a fictional language, using reverse speech files.“
