The special effects in the film were INCREDIBLE, considering that it was made in 1926. The brand new original score blended very well with the on screen action. From my vantage point, the packed house was not disappointed, to put it mildly.

Quotes & Highlights

Watch a clip of the film, accompanied by the Breuker Kollektief’s music, here.
On the Kollektief: “One of the tightest ensembles around.”—All About Jazz
On Murnau: “He was an original, and no one else ever made films that looked like his. They are strange and haunted; you reflect that if such satanic dealings were possible, they would probably look very much like this.” – Roger Ebert


In honor of Halloween, a night of devilish delights: the Willen Breuker Kollektief plays a live set of music accompanying one of the classics of silent film: F.W. Murnau’s 1926 masterpiece Faust.
