That trailer mash-up alone is enough to warrant a watch from me! CryptTeaze is very excited to share with you the poster and trailer for Mimesis: Nosferatu from director Douglas Schulze (The Dark Below, Mimesis: Night of the Living Dead, Hellmaster)! Let us know what you think of both in the comments!
"A group of students at Harker Art Academy are working on an adaptation of F.W. Murnau’s classic Nosferatu. However, things don’t quite go as planned…"
Schulze recently told Dread Central, “F.W. Murnau’s Nosferatu is arguably the most frightening cinematic monster to ever grace the screen. As a kid I could watch Lugosi as Dracula but the German made Nosferatu was the stuff of nightmares. So many horror films have paid homage to Count Orlok’s rat like appearance and the atmospheric art direction we’ve come to call German Expressionism. Salem’s Lot, Sweeney Todd… So many films have been influenced by Murnau’s classic.”
Mimesis: Nosferatu is from a screenplay by Jeff Meyers (Mass Murder), based on Schulze’s storyline. The movie stars Lance Henriksen, Allen Maldonado, Julie Kline, Jana Thompson and Gavin Grazer.
We have no details on a release date but will let you know as soon as we do!
