Nosferatu lives!

This isn't comics related but it may be of interest to those of you who like classic horror movies (and by classic I mean films from the early 20th Century). The people who publish the excellent Classic Monsters Magazine also do one-off special editions of individual movies. Coming up in October is one dedicated to Nosferatu, the 1922 German expressionist movie that set a high standard for chilling horror films. 

Here's the info from their website:
Though controversial in its day for its unauthorised use of Bram Stoker’s story Dracula, F W Murnau’s 1922 expressionist nightmare Nosferatu remains a powerful piece of filmmaking. Our Ultimate Guide to this silent horror classic explores the creation and legacy of one of cinema’s all-time favourite vampire films.
Produced in full colour and designed with the beautiful attention to detail you’ve come to expect, our Nosferatu magazine guide is the perfect companion piece to the movie. It’s packed with images, artwork, information and trivia which will place you right at the sinister heart of this beloved motion picture.
Biographies of the cast and crew, from Murnau himself to stars Max Schreck, Gustav von Wangenheim and cinematographer Fritz Arno Wagner, shine a fresh light on the people who brought Count Orlok’s shadow-haunted horror tale to life, while a range of articles examines the impact that Nosferatu had on horror cinema and filmmaking more widely.
So come with us as we walk the eerie streets of Wisborg, and take a fresh look at a turning point in horror cinema. Just like the movie itself, this is a Nosferatu guide you can’t afford to ignore – and remember, the first 250 copies are signed with a FREE Nosferatu art print!
