Austin’s most adventurous band, The Invincible Czars, bring their new tastefully modern score for the 1922 German silent film Nosferatu (1922 F.W. Murnau) to select cities in the West this spring en route to the Seattle International Film Festival.
Nosferatu is one of the most revered films in the history of cinema. It is most certainly as the most important horror film of the silent era and one of the first vampire movies — though it was almost completely lost when the estate of Bram Stoker sued the filmmakers for copyright infringement and most of the prints of the movie were destroyed.
Fans, theaters and media have praised The Invincible Czars for making the near century-old movie “actually scary” for modern day audiences. The score and their performance of it complements the tone and emotion on-screen at any given moment.
“…a brilliantly realized wedding of contemporary musical sensibility and technology with early 20th century cinema.” – Chico News Review
