The amazing original Dracula movie

Updated on January 16, 2013

Original Dracula movie will scare your pants off.

Dear reader. Nothing sends chills down my spine more intensely than the original Dracula movie titled Nosferatu: A Symphony of Horror.

It is not only the original Dracula movie, but also a silent movie made in black and white. Both those features, maybe unavoidable at the time of the films making only add to the suspense and horror.

This is the best horror movie ever made in my opinion. Not a high budget film, but expertly made, it makes me afraid to walk outside in the dark when just thinking about the count Orlok (the original Dracula).

Come into the blog if you dare!
