Nosferatu and Mallarmé Chamber Players 

When: Sun., Oct. 31, 3 p.m. 2010
Price: $15

If you're into old-school film horror—and by that, we mean "dawn of the actual medium of film"—or just plain horror in general, you owe it to yourself to get to the Carolina Theatre to witness this triumph of silent film and spot-on casting. F.W. Murnau's 1922 classic features a vampire who looks as creepy as Edward Cullen acts, played by the great Max Schreck. So creepy was Schreck's performance that a whole other film, Shadow of the Vampire, postulated that he was an actual vampire (he wasn't, just a stage actor dabbling in film).

A straight-up knockoff of Bram Stoker's Dracula (so much that Stoker's heirs sued the filmmakers and won), this tale has a significantly uncanny power with Schreck's performance as Count Orlok, one of the most iconic figures in all of film horror. And there's a cool local angle for this rare 35 mm presentation of the 62-minute cut—the Mallarmé Chamber Players perform music for the film live, employing experimental chamber works from Greensboro's Eric Schwartz and various pieces of horror film scores and classical music. Spend a chilling afternoon with Nosferatu for $15 at 3 p.m. —Zack Smith
