DER GOLEM (Masters of Cinema) New & Exclusive HD Home Video Trailer
An iconic early horror masterpiece, DER GOLEM was Paul Wegener’s third attempt at adapting the Golem character for the big screen. Starring and co-directing with Carl Boese, Wegener crafted one of silent cinema’s most enduring masterpieces. In the Jewish ghetto in 16th century Prague, Rabbi Low (Albert Streinruck, ASPHALT) creates a forbidding clay Golem (played by director Paul Wegener) to protect his people from the tyrannical Emperor Luhois (Otto Gebuhr). Brought to life with a demon spirit and an amulet placed in the centre of the creature’s chest, the Golem is a seemingly indestructible juggernaut, performing acts of great heroism. But when the Rabbi’s assistant attempts to control the Golem for selfish gain, it becomes a terrifying force of destruction, rampaging through the ghetto leaving fire and death in its wake. A landmark film in the horror canon, influencing most notably James Whale’s 1931 adaptation of FRANKENSTEIN, DER GOLEM, wie er in die Welt kam is also a pre-eminent example of German Expressionism, and an important contribution to the golden age of Weimar Cinema. The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present the film in its UK debut on Blu-ray from a brand new 4K restoration.
NOSFERATU 100th Anniversary Trailer
2022 brings the centenary of the most influential horror film of all time, NOSFERATU. 100th Anniversary screenings of NOSFERATU in the UK & Ireland https://bit.ly/3vzyCzi NOSFERATU (Masters of Cinema) Blu-ray Edition https://bit.ly/3gBiQv1 The turning point in the career of legendary director F.W. Murnau (SUNRISE, THE LAST LAUGH), the screen's first, albeit unauthorised adaptation of Bram Stoker's DRACULA (which itself celebrates its 125th Anniversary this year) features Max Schreck's unforgettable performance as the vampire Count Orlok, the most chilling portrayal of cadaverous evil in film history. Although a court order to destroy the film was successfully brought by Stoker's widow, some copies escaped, and subsequently gave the 20th century some of its defining images of supernatural terror and dread. A decades-long search for the best surviving material and a re-recording of the original score by Hans Erdmann now allows us to see the film exactly as it premiered 100 years ago. A towering masterpiece whose legacy is truly incalculable, NOSFERATU remains as mesmerising - and haunting - as ever.
The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1923) - Trailer
AVAILABLE ON BLU-RAY AT https://www.flickeralley.com/ Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/flickeralley/ Twitter - https://twitter.com/flickeralley Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/FlickerAlley/ Flicker Alley, in association with the Blackhawk Films Collection®, is proud to present The Hunchback of Notre Dame, starring Lon Chaney as Quasimodo, looking as if he had just stepped out from the original illustrations of Victor Hugo’s novel. Hunchback is a huge production: the sets depicting 15th-century Paris covered nineteen acres of Universal Pictures’ back lot and included the façade of Notre Dame Cathedral. Filming took six months and the climactic sequence employed two thousand extras, but it’s Lon Chaney’s performance that makes the character unforgettable. The Hunchback of Notre Dame premiered at New York’s Astor Theatre on September 2, 1923. The success of the film was immediate; it made Carl Laemmle and Universal Pictures a fortune, and turned Lon Chaney into a screen legend. This edition is mastered from a multi-tinted 16mm print struck in 1926 from the original camera negative. (The film apparently does not survive in 35mm). Visible wear in the source material is diminished with a moderate amount of digital restoration. A new symphonic score arranged by Donald Hunsberger was recorded in the Czech Republic with a full orchestra conducted by Robert Israel. BONUS MATERIALS INCLUDE: - Audio Commentary Track - by Lon Chaney scholar Michael F. Blake - Rare Behind-the-Scenes Footage - featuring Lon Chaney out of makeup on the Cathedral set - Alas and Alack (1915) - an early short film featuring a brief appearance by Lon Chaney as a hunchback - Photo Gallery - a slideshow presentation of over 50 original production and publicity stills - Original Program Book - a digital reproduction of the souvenir program book that was sold at all roadshow engagements of The Hunchback of Notre Dame - Souvenir Booklet - featuring an essay by Lon Chaney scholar Michael F.
