Nosferatu film still
FW Murnau, the German born director of the cult classic Nosferatu had his skull robbed from his grave, according to The Guardian. Apparently the incident occurred in Stahnsdorf, Germany (12 miles from Berlin) and is suspected to have been done by a ritualistic occult group. Candles were burning as the head was extracted leaving wax at the crime scene. Even stranger, this isn’t the first time it’s happened. I wonder how they got his skull back last time?
Horror flick Nosferatu, was made in 1922 and later remade by Werner Herzog. Murnau also directed Sunrise which was an Oscar favorite at the first-ever Academy awards. Murnau eventually died in a car crash in California in 1931.
