Two iconic silent horror films, paired with original scores performed live by local musicians.
Nosferatu – original live score performed by Children of October.
(1st of two films)
Nosferatu: A Symphony of Horror or simply Nosferatu, is a 1922 German Expressionist horror film, directed by F. W. Murnau, starring Max Schreck as the vampire Count Orlok. The film, shot in 1921 and released in 1922, was an unauthorized adaptation of Bram Stoker’s Dracula (1897); the Stoker Estate had refused permission. Various names and other details were changed from the novel: for instance, vampire became Nosferatu, and Count Dracula became Count Orlok.
A Page of Madness – original live score performed by Monsters of Japan
(2nd of two films)
A Page of Madness (Kurutta Ippēji or Kurutta Ichipeiji) is a 1926 Japanese silent horror film directed by Teinosuke Kinugasa. It was lost for forty-five years until being rediscovered by Kinugasa in his storehouse in 1971. The film is the product of an avant-garde group of artists in Japan known as the Shinkankakuha (or School of New Perceptions) who tried to overcome naturalistic representation
