Shadow of the Vampire

Shadow of the Vampire (2000)

2 corrected entries

Corrected entry: In the last scene, when Orlock is going to suck Gretta's blood, the actress screams that she can't see his reflection in the mirror. In the 1922 film, however, his reflection is quite visible.

Correction: This movie is not an accurate historical piece. It uses facets of the 1922 filming of Nosferatu as a basis for a fictional "what if" story in which the actor Max Schreck (who plays Orlok) is an ACTUAL vampire. In order to convey this in the story his reflection does not appear in the mirror thus making Gretta scream. In the 1922 film Max Schreck was, however, a real person who did not drink the blood of his co-stars and had a visible reflection.

Corrected entry: When departing, the producer remarks to the assembled press that F.W. Murnau is one of the greatest directors, comparable to D.W. Griffith or Sergei Eisenstein. Nosferatu was filmed in 1921, Eisenstein's first film came out in 1925.

Correction: This statement is wrong. Eisenstein's first film was released in 1917.
