IN THIS EPISODE: The 1922 horror classic Nosferatu still turns up, on TV and on college campuses, every Halloween. And it’ll show up again this coming Saturday night, May 1st, at 9pm Central Time as our “Halfway to Halloween” Weirdo Watch Party film – complete with Drac as our horror host for the evening! (More info at https://weirddarkness.com/watchparty). A Weirdo family member suggested we take a look at the film’s history before this weekend’s watch party – to set up the fun even more. And I love the idea. So that’s what we’re going to do. HowNosferatu is terrifyingly relevant today, the controversial making of the film and the lawsuit by Bram Stoker’s wife, how the director of the film was involved in the occult… and how you would not have wanted to miss the film’s premiere which was an unforgettable event all by itself. That and a whole lot more about 1922’s Nosferatu, on this episode of Weird Darkness.
