With Julian West, Sybille Schmitz
Directed by Carl Dreyer

This 1931 black & white classic tells a dark and innovative tale of vampires, making full use of dissolve techniques, shadows and non-visual scares and tension. The story follows a young man's discovery of dark goings on, when he finds an unconscious girl on the road who was attacked by a vampire in the shape of an old woman. Like
Nosferatu and The Cabinet Of Doctor Caligari, this landmark film may be extremely dated, but still holds a lot of intrigue and atmosphere.
