Shadow of the Vampire (2000) VERY well acted horror drama about the making of the early German silent classic vampire movie Nosferatu with John Malkovich as film director F W Murnau and Willem Dafoe as Max Schreck, who played "Count Orlok", the "Dracula" character in the film (nominated for a Best Supporting Actor Oscar)
the premise of the plot is that Schreck (which means terror in German) was a REAL vampire. Eddie Izzard plays the movie's Thomas Hutter character while Catherine McCormack plays his wife in the movie, Ellen Hutter. some REALLY crazy interaction between the Schreck character (Dafoe) and the rest of the cast and crew to where they are saying to each other "HOLY SH*T!!! this guy is the REAL THING!!!
