Nosferatu is a 1922 German Expressionist horror film, directed by F. W. Murnau, starring Max Schreck as the vampire Count Orlok. The film, shot in 1921 and released in 1922, was an unauthorized adaptation of Bram Stoker's  Dracula (1897). Various names and other details were changed from the novel: for instance, "vampire" became "nosferatu" and "Count Dracula" became "Count Orlok".

Stoker's heirs sued over the adaptation, and a court ruling ordered that all copies of the film be destroyed. However, a few prints of Nosferatu survived, and the film came to be regarded as an influential masterpiece of cinema. As of 2017, it is Rotten Tomatoes' third-best reviewed horror film of all time.[3]

The film was released in the United States on 3 June 1929, seven years after its original premiere in Germany.

Dmytro Morykit a composer of original music for film, theatre, dance and public performance.Originally invited to Edinburgh for the festival, he lived there for 25 years, working with choreographers, poets, film makers and dramatists. In 2013, he moved with his partner and manager, Hazel, to Comrie in Perthshire where the surrounding countryside reflects a change in his composition style.
