Happy Halloween! From, The Writing Whisperer!

Happy Halloween!  
The Writing Whisperer!

Writing Prompt:  Take a peek at Open Culture's link to the quintessential vampire film, Nosferatu, which Open Culture describe as follows:
"F.W. Murnau’s 1922 silent feature adapts Bram Stoker’s Dracula, but just loosely enough so that it could put its own stamp on the myth and not actually have to pay for rights to the novel. Jonathan and Mina Harker? Now Thomas and Ellen Hutter. Jonathan’s boss Renfield? Now a fellow named Knock. Count Dracula, to whose vast and crumbling estate Renfield sends the hapless Jonathan? Now Count Orlok — and unforgettably so. We can post no more relevant endorsement ofNosferatu‘s enduring value than to say that it remains scary, or at least eerie, to this day. I defy any sophisticated modern viewer to spend All Hallows’ eve with this picture and not come away feeling faintly unsettled."
After viewing the film, write your own review or your reaction to the film.  Better yet, write your short story inspired by this classic silent film.
