"Shadow of a Vampire"Campus Films. "Shadow of the Vampire." (U.S./U.K./Luxembourg 2000, 92 min., directed by E. Elias Merhige, rated R.) “The best of all vampire movies is Nosferatu, made by F.W. Murnau in Germany in 1922,” writes Roger Ebert. “Max Schreck, the mysterious actor who played Court Orlock the vampire, is so persuasive we never think of the actor, only of the creature. 'Shadow of the Vampire,' a wicked new movie about the making of Nosferatu, has an explanation for Schreck’s performance: He really was a vampire.” Sponsored by the University Activities Commission of the Student Senate. Tickets are $2 at the Service Center for IFS members and UW-Eau Claire faculty/staff or $1 for UW-Eau Claire students. Davies Theatre, 6 p.m. Through Feb. 22.

"Nosfuratu"Campus Films. "Nosferatu." (Germany 1922, 84 minutes, directed by F.W. Murnau, in black and white.) The quintessential silent vampire film. Rather than depicting Dracula as a shape-shifting monster or debonair gentleman, F.W. Murnau's Graf Orlok (Max Schreck) is a nightmarish creature — the most genuinely disturbing incarnation of vampirism yet envisioned. An atypical expressionist film, Nosferatu was shot on location in the Carpathian mountains, and is infused with the subtle tones of nature — both pure and fresh as well as twisted and sinister. Sponsored by the University Activities Commission of the Student Senate. Tickets are $2 at the Service Center for IFS members and UW-Eau Claire faculty/staff or $1 for UW-Eau Claire students. Davies Theatre, 8 p.m. Through Feb. 22. Go to top of page
