    Nosferatu the Vampyre

    ★★★★

    Celebrating Monster Mondays with the king of fangs, Nosferatu the Vampyre (1979). Werner Herzog’s remake of the 1922 classic is moody and atmospheric and weird and cool and Klaus Kinski is all those things too. 

    If you can’t get enough of our dear Vlad Tepes, be sure to check out Nosferatu with Live Score by Mood Area 52 at The Hollywood Theatre on October 28th!

    Technically beautiful. Night scenes are lit practically by lamps, giving a sense of claustrophobia and paranoia. I couldn't help but tense up and 🙈 with each nighttime scene. Q&A with…

    The Bad Batch

    ★★★★½

    Classic girl torn between two men tale. Who will she pick: cannibalistic artist and daddy Khal Drogo or acid-fueled Dov Charney cult leader Keanu Reeves? Tough choice.
