  • Nosferatu is only viewable today due to piracy

    ‘In 1922 a German court ordered all prints and negatives of Nosferatu destroyed following a copyright dispute with the widow of Bram Stoker. The film only exists today because of piracy. One copy survived and somehow found it’s way to America, where Dracula was already in the public domain. That’s it. That’s the only reason you’ve ever seen the granddaddy of all horror movies.’
