Nosferatu is a silent film about a lurking vampire that stalks his enemies. He has a misshapen head and razor sharp teeth. During the years following, the horror movie genre went from the creepy (Dracula, Frankenstein, The Mummy) to the brutal (Friday The 13th, Halloween, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and A Nightmare on Elm Street).
