Just in time for Halloween: Pioneer silent horror movie to be shown on the big screen with live music—see it if you dare

Get into the Halloween spirit with a classic silent horror film!

The film will include live music performed by New Hampshire-based silent film accompanist Jeff Rapsis.

'Nosferatu' (1922), directed by German filmmaker F.W. Murnau, remains a landmark work of the cinematic horror genre. It was among the first movies to use visual design to contribute to an overall sense of terror.

To modern viewers, the passage of time has made this unusual film seem even more strange and otherworldly.

It's an atmosphere that silent film accompanist Jeff Rapsis will enhance in improvising live music on the spot for the screening at the Regent.

«The original 'Nosferatu' is a film that seems to get creepier as more time goes by,» said Rapsis, a resident of Bedford, N.H. «It's a great way to celebrate Halloween and the power of silent film to transport audiences to strange and unusual places.»

In 'Nosferatu,' actor Max Schreck portrays the title character, a mysterious count from Transylvania who travels to the German city of Bremen to take up residence.

In the town, a rise in deaths from the plague is attributed to the count's arrival. Only when a young woman reads «The Book of Vampires» does it become clear how to rid the town of this frightening menace.

Director Murnau told the story with strange camera angles, weird lighting, and special effects that include sequences deliberately speeded up.

Although 'Nosferatu' is suitable for all family members, the overall program may be too intense for very young children to enjoy.
