  Count Orlock.
Jesus Christ! I just finished watching an extremely disturbing horror movie, called Shadow of the Vampire. It's basically about a director, namely Friedrich W. Murnau, who is determined to film the most realistic rendition of the Gothic film classic, Nosferatu. Friedrich went about to hire a stange actor who claims to be Max Schreck. But things does not seem that simple. Friedric, maddened by his dreams of the perfect film, is willing to sacrifice his crew members for the film, leaving the evil-doer, Count Orlock to reign over the whole production.

I was highly disturbed at the end of the film... Thinking which to trust... And, Count Orlock has definitely qualified into my 'Villian Heart-Throb'' list.

Here's a quote from the movie:

(Upon being asked what he thought of the book, Dracula, by Bram Stoker)
Count Orlock: It made me sad.
Albin: Why sad?
Count Orlock: Because Dracula had no servants.
Albin: I think you missed the point of the book, Count Orlock.
Count Orlock: Dracula hasn't had servants in 400 years and then a man comes to his ancestral home, and he must convince him that he -- that he is like the man. He has to feed him, when he himself hasn't eaten food in centuries. Can he even remember how to buy bread? How to select cheese and wine? And then he remembers the rest of it. How to prepare a meal, how to make a bed. He remembers his first glory, his armies, his retainers, and what he is reduced to. The loneliest part of the book comes... when the man accidentally sees Dracula setting his table.

Oh gosh, the way Count Orlock hisses and snarls, and his ratty motions he protrayed flawlessly just turns me on... I think JK Rowling is inspired by Count Orlock for her fictional character of Wormtail. =P

Blah, Count Orlock, take me! Just kidding!

People! Go watch that movie!
