NOSFERATU 100 by BIG KILL: A Symphony of Horror

Oct 4, 8:00-9:30pm, St Andrew’s Wesley United Church

Destructive pop duo BIG KILL (the latest project from We Are the City’s Cayne McKenzie and Andrew Huculiak) resurrects horror centenarian Nosferatu in the gothic setting of St. Andrew’s-Wesley for a spellbinding night of hyper pop frenzy. Cinema’s first adaptation of Bram Stoker’s Dracula, F.W. Murnau’s masterpiece casts a long shadow over the history of movie horror. A viral hit, Nosferatu emerged just four years after the 1918 H1N1 pandemic claimed the lives of 50 million souls, fanning fears of the Other.
