The film itself was fantastic. A true classic horror movie with real tension and drama. The live score, which ranged from discordant horns and keyboard to hard-driving rock, was very jarring and often drowned out the more nuanced moments of the film.
This screening is part of a series in which the greatest silent films of all time come alive with a 21st-century beat at SF’s grandest movie palace. All screenings feature live performances of original scores by renowned silent-film accompanists and Bay Area legends the Club Foot Orchestra.
The granddaddy of all vampire films, F.W. Murnau’s loose (and unauthorized) adaptation of Bram Stoker’s Dracula stars Max Schreck as the perennially chilling prince of the undead, Count Orlock.
