Asc to Honor Director Werner Herzog with Board of Governors Award
Legendary director Werner Herzog, one of the founders of the German New Wave, whose films embrace obsessive quests and maddening conflicts with nature, will receive the American Society of Cinematographers’ Board of Governors Award at the 34th annual Asc Awards on January 25 (at Hollywood & Highland’s Ray Dolby Ballroom).

“Werner Herzog is truly a unique storyteller, and we are honored to recognize him for his prolific contributions to cinema,” said Asc President Kees van Oostrum.

Herzog has produced, written, and directed more than 70 feature and documentary films. His volatile, love-hate relationship with actor Klaus Kinski resulted in such powerful films as “Aguirre, the Wrath of God,” “Fitzcarraldo,” “Nosferatu the Vampyre,” and “Woyzeck.” Other masterpieces include “Stroszek” and “The Enigma of Kaspar Hauser,” both starring street musician-turned actor Bruno S.

Herzog received an Oscar nomination for Best Documentary Feature for “Encounters at the End of the World,” while “Little Dieter Needs to Fly

10 Best Horror Movie Monsters Based On Real Mythology

The first horror movies were based on mythology and folklore - cautionary tales designed to mold young minds into making wise choices. If they didn't, they were sure to encounter a gruesome creature that would make them wish they'd learned the fable's lesson. Over the decades since these stories have been interpreted with a visual medium, horror films have evolved, inventing their own mythology with creatures like Freddy Krueger and Pinhead.

While visual effects have only gotten better at making myths into reality, ancient fears still turn out to be the best sources directors and writers can turn to when they want to keep audiences up all night. Beginning in the '20s and '30s with Nosferatu and Frankenstein's Monster, the manner of storytelling may change, but the nature of the evil does not, ensuring that folklore and myth

Blu-ray Review: Langella Hypnotizes in Dracula 1979

I don't know the numbers, but Bram Stoker's book Dracula has been adapted quite a bit into theatrical productions, TV series, and movies. The property is up there with Sherlock Holmes, Pride and Predjudice, and The Three Musketeers as one of the most popular literary creations ever. As far as Dracula goes, some of the numerous filmmakers and actors who have adapted and inhabited the role include: Francis Ford Coppola and Gary Oldham (Bram Stoker's Dracula); F.W. Murnau and Max Schreck (Nosferatu); Werner Herzog and Klaus Kinski (Nosferatu the Vampyre); Tod Browning and Bela Lugosi (Dracula); Dan Curtis and Jack Palance (Dracula); Paul Morrissey and Udo Kier (Blood for Dracula); Fisher and Christopher Lee (Horror of Dracula and Hammer had its sequels); and even an NBC series that sadly lasted only one...

What Kind of Dracula Can We Expect From the Sherlock Creators?

Becky Lea Dec 6, 2019

Will the Sherlock creators' take on Dracula make the Count a monster, gentleman or clown?

Bram Stoker’s Dracula was not an instant hit in 1897 when it was first published, despite positive reviews. But the figure of the vampire himself has since become a cultural figure with a status few others have achieved. Consequently, there have been an enormous amount of stage and screen adaptations of the Dracula novel, or featuring the character throughout the 20th century and into the 21st.

And now, Sherlock creators Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss have made their own adaptation of Stoker’s novel, starring Claes Bang as the eponymous bloodsucker. It got us wondering what kind of Dracula we might be in for this time. There are far too many iterations of Transylvania’s most famous citizen to produce an exhaustive list, but there are a few broad categories that adaptations

Interview: Co-Writer/Director Robert Eggers Talks The Lighthouse and Nosferatu

With only two features under his belt, filmmaker Robert Eggers has quickly established himself as one of the most exciting and undeniable storytelling forces in modern genre cinema, with both The Witch and his latest, The Lighthouse, which is currently enjoying a limited theatrical release, and will be headed to more theaters this weekend, courtesy of A24.

Earlier this week, Daily Dead spoke with Eggers about The Lighthouse and during our conversation, he discussed reteaming with A24 for his second film, exploring the folk mythology of New England in his work, working with both Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson for his intimate tale of madness, and the classic aesthetic of The Lighthouse. This writer also couldn’t help but ask about Nosferatu, which is a film that Eggers previously had expressed interested in revisiting from a directorial standpoint in the future, and he talked about why he prefers the original

How Robert Eggers Built a 19th-Century ‘Lighthouse’ That Could Shine for 16 Miles

How Robert Eggers Built a 19th-Century ‘Lighthouse’ That Could Shine for 16 Miles
The Lighthouse” marks the latest attempt by director Robert Eggers (“The Witch”) to make a visually Gothic brand of silent cinema in the 21st century. It’s an isolated, maddening, black-and-white tour de force for 19th century lighthouse keepers Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson to break each other down both psychologically and physically. Think of it as another tune-up for his “Nosferatu” remake. Shot by Eggers’ go-to cinematographer Jarin Blaschke, it appropriately boasts the square 1.19:1 aspect ratio of silent movies.

And Eggers’ trusty production designer Craig Lathrop was instrumental in building the right environment in Nova Scotia to help deliver the horrifying mood, including an authentic lighthouse illuminated by a Fresnel lens replica that could shine for 16 miles. “The film itself feels old and shingled, you’re transported back to a different time,” he said. “And the claustrophobic sense lends itself to the boxy framing. It was a beautiful choice.

Halloween 2019: Nosferatu (1922) – Dread in Monochrome

[This Halloween season, we're paying tribute to classic horror cinema by celebrating films released before 1970! Check back on Daily Dead this month for more retrospectives on classic horror films, and visit our online hub to catch up on all of our Halloween 2019 special features!]

It comes down to the shadows; always has and always will. Horror hides from us in the unknown and unkempt, the terrifying and tantalizing, locked behind an impenetrable darkness that holds our deepest fears and regrets. But sometimes that darkness is released upon a world that just isn’t ready for what lies within. Such is the case with F.W. Murnau’s Nosferatu (1922), the silent classic that begat vampires upon the public in ways still felt today. Nearly 100 years has not quieted its brooding charms and ethereal dread.

It is a film that was almost lost forever; Bram Stoker (author of Dracula)’s widow got very litigious and all prints were thought to be destroyed. However, some did manage to make it out of Germany, and this foreboding art drifted across the world, landing in the Us some seven years later, safe from persecution.

What persecution, you ask? Well, Murnau
