I never tried to watch the film again in later years, but I did see the 2004 film with Gerard Butler, Emmy Rossum, Minnie Driver and Patrick Wilson. I enjoyed it, but didn't do any research on it beforehand, so I didn't realize that it was actually based on the Andrew Lloyd Weber musical and NOT an updated remake of the silent film.
I think I need to watch this again. And the silent version of Nosferatu. In fact, I think I need to make a list of ALL silent horror films and watch them.
