Opening Credits Sequence Theatre: Nosferatu (1979)

So, because I was at the National Audio Theatre Workshop in West Plains last week, posting for the month's pretty light, so here we go.

WARNING: This one contains footage of the Guanajuato mummies in Mexico, and so you might find it pretty icky. May not be work safe.

The music and visuals are perfectly matched here- unnerving, but with an almost sacred undertone, conveying the stark gravity of, well, death. Which is what most horror films are about, but this particular one focuses on the titular vampire's unlife and detachment from the living world to a greater extreme than other entries in the genre, so it's an appropriate start. And that music is awesome.
