One of the most influential and powerful of all horror films shouldn’t still exist. When Nosferatu was made in 1922, it was clearly inspired by Bram Stoker’s immortal 1897 novel Dracula. So much so that Stoker’s estate sued over it, and a court ruled that all prints of the film should be destroyed. A few copies managed to survive, however, and Nosferatu became a cult favorite. Over time, F.W. Murnau’s vampire epic has become recognized as a masterpiece.
