Need title of vampire movie - about Nosferatu, but not called that.

It's a movie that's about Nosferatu, but it's not called that. It might actually be about making a Nosferatu movie and then spooky stuff starts happening on set, maybe?

I also seem to recall it was one of Anchor Bay's nice two disc sets back in the day, but not sure on that.

It's a few years old, but not old like the original Nosferatu movie.

thanks!

Shadow of the Vampire. John Malkovich, Willem Defoe. It's a good movie.

OK, that's right, thank you, though it seems odd it's only from 2000, seemed a little older.

But I don't seem to see an Anchor Bay DVD and that was part of what I was remembering. Is there another vampire movie they did?

I think Nick Danger is right - Shadow of the Vampire sounds more like the synopsis you posted.

Anchor Bay did release a two disc DVD of Werner Herzog's Nosferatu the Vampyre (1979) which is a semi-remake with Klaus Kinski so maybe you are thinking of that.

Ah, that's the one I just bought the Bluray of so it was on my mind.
That should settle it, thanks

Not settled until you watch the horrible 'sequel' Nosferatu in Venice.
