Do you Dare Read the ‘Scroll of Morlok’?

There’s something about silent horror films such as Nosferatu and the Cabinet of Dr. Caligari that have an interesting staying power in the psyche of the genre. These iconic images, raw and unadulterated by the decades of an oversaturated market speak to the original intent of horror, to horrify. The Scroll of Morlok looks to return us to that bygone era and I have to say that I absolutely love the imagery here. Take a look at the filmmakers crowdfunding campaign and… GET OUR YER WALLETS!!!

From the campaign:

“We share a deep love for the impressionistic style and wildly creative craftsmanship on display in movies like Nosferatu and The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari. As such, we aim to interpolate their surreal, iconic imagery through a bold new prism of contemporary filmmaking techniques, so as to reach a new audience that might otherwise be unaware of this past chapter in film history.”
