Halloween Nosferatu Display

 So I read this AWESOME AWESOME post by 100 Scope Notes about Nosferatu.  Have you read it?  Well go read it now!  (I'll wait, I promise).

Anyway, I thought this was just about the best idea I'd ever heard and knew I could adapt it to an awesomely weird teen book display.

(Noseferatu is a movie from the 20s.  Read more about it here.  The Fabulous Werner Herzog also made a Nosferatu movie in the late 70s. Nosferatu is kind of the original film vampire.)

After asking Mr. Scope Notes' permission, I created, THIS display (yes, Nosferatu is misspelled.  I corrected it):

I put little pictures of Nosferatu's mug on each ghost story or horror story I put on the display.  I think it improved the covers immensely.  What do you think?

So the teens could spread the fun at home too, I cut out little pictures of Nosferatu for them to take home!

So, this Halloween go watch the Nosferatu movies.  Then spread the classic movie and class vampire love with *your* teens.  If they are anything like my teens, they will love the quirky weirdness of it.
