    Can anyone remember the title of a film, about a film being made, about a Vampire, which a Vampire joins the cast? Out about 10 years ago.
    Maybe Xusia Of Delos can help on this one.

    Garrett,

    I think the film you are referring to is actually a much more recent release, called "Shadow Of The Vampire" with Willem Defoe.

    It's a semi-biographical drama about the making of "Nosferatu", and Willem Defoe plays real-life (deceased) actor Max Schrek, who is supposed to be a real vampire, but none of the other cast and crew know about this. (Shreck wasn't, incidentally. Though he was a rather oddball actor, to say the least!) Shreck played "Nosferatu" in the 1922 movie of the same name.

    I'm 99% certain this is the one you're thinking of.

    Oh, and the "Shadow..." film is appalling. It goes right up its own backside at the end. "Nosferatu" however, is one of the best horror films from that time period! Very classy!

    Pooch

    Sorry Pooch, but thanks, it is not the film I was thinking of. Funny enough I was wondering what the film was and by coincidence saw some stills of the "Shadow Of The Vampire" this weekend, but as I say not the one I’m thinking of, that’s why I deliberately said about 10years old. The film I was thinking of had no well known actors in it(at the time anyway) and was defiantly a minor movie.
    I have to agree with you "Nosferatu", was a brilliant film, I still enjoy it, but sort of thing nightmares are made of :eek: . Shame they never show it these days.

    Yes, but not in the one I was inquiring about.

    Incidentally, Max Schrek mysteriously disappeared after Nosferatu was made and was never seen or heard of again.

    This obviously added to the "Shadow Of The Vampire" myth.

    Wasn't Max Schrek the name of the character Christopher Walken played in Batman Returns?
