I certainly hoped that this Francis Ford Coppola film would have started a resurgence of horror films, but it was not to be. Sure, they did a credible job with Mary Shelley's Frankenstein a few years later, but that was the last gasp of this series.

Shadow of the Vampire was on BBC2, on Sunday night. Have to admit, it gets better every time I watch it. I don't know who's the bigger monster, Willem Dafoe as Max Shreck, or John Malkovich as F.W.
