San Luis Obispo International Film Festival to kick off with classic horror film

Posted: Updated:

The San Luis Obispo International Film Festival kicks off Tuesday night with a party and a screening of a classic horror film.

"Nosferatu" was the first vampire movie ever made. The 1922 silent classic was an unauthorized version of Bram Stoker's "Dracula," but the names and details were changed because the studio couldn't get the rights to the novel.
     
Stoker's heirs sued and won a ruling that all copies of the film be destroyed, but one print survived and the screening Tuesday night features a beautifully restored digital print of that.
     
SLOIFF kicks off with a live accompaniment by pianist Markus Horn at the Spanos Theatre on the Cal Poly campus at 7:30 p.m.
