Research for "Reinventing Illustration" Silent Film

I have been inspired by the 1922 silent horror classic "Nosferatu", this film deals with many aspects of cryptids and legends that I am using within my work. I am especially inspired by the directors portrayal of the vampire itself without being too bland or obvious, it is stylistically approached to the point that the simplicity of the character's look becomes something more unsettling than the legend itself.

I do not only enjoy the the content of the film itself but of the nature of the medium, its grainy and indistinct, something that i think especially the "Yuki-Onna" character I am working on could benefit from hugely.
