Favorite Scenes №1: Nosferatu
In 1922 Friedrich Wilhelm Murnau filmed the climactic end to his film Nosferatu. Our heroine, Ellen, sits cowering in her bed as the vampire enters her bedroom. The shadow of his horrible claw-like hand creeps up her white nightgown and when it reaches her breast the shadow suddenly grabs tight and forms a fist. She convulses in an exquisitely ambiguous moment of pain, ecstasy, fear and submission.
