Count Orlok Rises from the Grave in New Nosferatu Photography Recreation Stills



I’m still not sold on the idea of photography as an art form, but man, these new Nosferatu shots from the UK horror photography studio Horrify Me look magnificent.

It’s almost as if F. W. Murnau (return his skull, goddammit!) and Max Schreck rose from beyond the grave to create this images from their 1922 classic. Count Orlok (who’s a woman here) has never looked so good.

About the Photos:
Horrify Me Studio has breathed life into one of the original icons of horror cinema, Nosferatu. Artist and photographer Rick Jones had his sights set on this shoot for quite some time but never wanted to do it with a rubber bald cap.

“I wanted to use a female model rather than a male, for the simple reason that I wanted to give Nosferatu a more feminine and sensual quality and a more delicate expressive hand movement. But this meant finding a woman brave enough to shave herself bald, as the latex bald cap simply wasn’t an option. Even the best bald caps can look kind of fake in certain conditions, and I just didn’t want that distraction.”

Luckily, a local girl named Sara Cridland answered the call. Not only was she willing to shave her hair off right to the skin, but she also arranged a charity event and used her extreme hair cut to raise almost £1000 for a cancer charity.

The shoot features Rick’s wife, Claire, who lent her neck to feed Nosferatu’s relentless thirst.

Email your answer to including your FULL NAME AND MAILING ADDRESS along with “Winchester Competition” in your subject line, and we’ll take care of the rest. The competition closes on May 28, and please don’t enter if you live outside the UK.

Winchester was directed by the Spierig Brothers, and was co-distributed by Lionsgate and CBS Films. It stars Academy Award winner Helen Mirren alongside Jason Clarke, Sarah Snook, Finn Scicluna-O’Prey, and Angus Sampson.

Winchester Official Synopsis
On an isolated stretch of land 50 miles outside of San Francisco sits the most haunted house in the world. Built by Sarah Winchester (Helen Mirren), the eccentric firearm heiress to the Winchester Repeating Arms fortune, it is a house that knows no end.

Renowned for its enormous size, its architectural curiosities, and its lack of any master building plan, the Winchester house was constructed in an incessant twenty-four hour a day, seven day a week mania for decades. It stands seven stories tall and contains hundreds of rooms with numerous oddities. To the outsider it looks like a monstrous monument to a disturbed woman’s madness. But Sarah is not building for herself, for her niece (Sarah Snook) or for the brilliant Doctor Eric Price (Jason Clarke) whom she has summoned to the house. She is building a prison, an asylum for hundreds of vengeful ghosts, and the most terrifying among them have a score to settle with the Winchesters.

AHS 8 Will Be More Like ASYLUM and COVEN



News has been steadily coming in regarding the upcoming 8th season of Ryan Murphy’s horror anthology series American Horror Story. It was just the other day that we let you guys know that Billie Lourd will be back for the new season, which begins shooting this June.

And today we have word via Deadline regarding just what the tone will be for this new season, rumored to be titled AHS: Radioactive.

It’s not necessarily as real and grounded as the past season,” Murphy said. “We’re sort of getting back to Asylum and Coven. That’s the tone of it.”

Personally, I really enjoyed the grounded tone of AHS: Cult and I think it helped rejuvenate the series. But then again, a return to the tone of perhaps the show’s most beloved season (AHS: Asylum) is just what the series needs in the long run.

Are you excited to hear AHS 8 will be going back to the tone of Asylum and Coven? Make sure to hit us up and let us know what you think in the comments below or on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram!

AHS Season 8 stars Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Billie Lourd, Kathy Bates, and new cast member Joan Collins, who will play Peters’ grandmother. Murphy has revealed he’s interested in casting Anjelica Huston (The Addams Family) as well.
