This weekend, Murray State's Cinema International celebrates Halloween with the seminal 1922 horror classic "Nosferatu."  The silent film puts a German expressionist spin on the story of Count Dracula and, thanks to director F.W. Murnau (muhr-NOW) it invented much of the visual language of modern horror movies.  And, when you get right down to it, "Nosferatu" is still creepy, even after almost a century.  Todd Hatton speaks with Cinema International director Dr. Therese St. Paul and MSU theatre professor Dr. Lissa Graham-Schneider about "Nosferatu," playing tonight, tomorrow night, and Saturday night at 7:30 at Murray State's Curris Center Theater with discussions to follow.  Tickets are free and open to the public.  Donations supporting Cinema International can be made at the showings or through MSU's Office of Development.
