The absence of the Behind the Scenes Pic of the Day is the most abject pain.

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes pic!
You know, I’ve never seen Werner Herzog’s remake of Nosferatu. I suppose it’d make a great addition to my A Movie A Day column. Maybe next October, yeah?
I mean, I love Herzog, I love the original Nosferatu and the idea of Klaus Kinski playing Count Dracula is very appealing to me. I’m just not a massive, massive fan of the Dracula tale, truth be told. With all due credit to Bela Lugosi’s mesmerizing performance and Tod Browning’s brilliant gothic atmosphere, Dracula is my least favorite of the Universal Monster movies.
So, I suppose that’s the reason I haven’t jumped immediately into this film, but I love the iconic image of Max Schrek’s vampire. He is not a romantic, he’s a fucking monster.
And below you’ll see Mr. Kinski in the make-up, a young Werner Herzog and a whole lot of atmosphere. I love how the darkness is almost a character in this photo. I hope you enjoy it (and click for the bigger version)!
If you have a pic you think should be included email me. I’m looking for the iconic, the rare or the just plain cool behind the scenes shots to feature here.
Tomorrow’s Behind the Scenes Pic is like this one, but older.
