'From Dracula to Buffy': Resurrecting history's onscreen vampires
(Agence France-Presse) - October 13, 2019 - 1:45pm

PARIS, France — Far from a recent feature of teen dramas, vampires have haunted the silver screen since the dawn of moving pictures. Now, just in time for Halloween, the French Cinémathèque is resurrecting one of film's most captivating creatures with an exhibit that covers over a hundred years of movie history.

"We tried to create an immersive, spectacular exhibition in which we show all of the cult objects surrounding the myth. And maybe the most spectacular are those at the beginning of the exposition, the objects used to make the second "Nosferatu," the one by Werner Herzog with Klaus Kinski and Isabelle Adjani. And behind me you have the costumes from "Dracula" by Francis Ford Coppola," Frédéric Bonnaud, Director of the Cinémathèque Française said.
