F.W. Murnau's 1922 Nosferatu, the first (albeit unofficial) screen adaptation of Bram Stoker's Dracula, starring Max Schreck as the hollow-eyed, cadaverous vampire, remains a potent and disturbing horror film. Kevin Jackson's study traces Nosferatu's eventful production and reception history, including attempts by Stoker's widow to suppress it.

KEVIN JACKSON is a writer, broadcaster and film-maker. His books include Invisible Forms: A Guide to Literary Curiosities (2003), Withnail & I (2004) and Lawrence of Arabia (2007).
