Shadow of the Vampire Quotes

Willem Dafoe as Max Schreck

  • (Willem Dafoe) "It made me sad."
  • (Udo Kier) "Why sad?"
  • (Willem Dafoe) "Because Dracula had no servants."
  • (Udo Kier) "I think you missed the point of the book, Count Orlock."
  • (Willem Dafoe) "Dracula hasn't had servants in 400 years and then a man comes to his ancestral home, and he must convince him that he -- that he is like the man. He has to feed him, when he himself hasn't eaten food in centuries. Can he even remember how to buy bread? How to select cheese and wine? And then he remembers the rest of it. How to prepare a meal, how to make a bed. He remembers his first glory, his armies, his retainers, and what he is reduced to. The loneliest part of the book comes -- when the man accidentally sees Dracula setting his table."
  • (Willem Dafoe) "Did I kill one of your people, Murnau? I can't remember."
  • (Willem Dafoe) "I feed like an old man pees; sometimes all at once, sometimes drop by drop."
  • (Willem Dafoe) "I told you, I feed erratically, and often enormously."
  • (Willem Dafoe) "Tell me how you would harm me; when even I don't know how I could harm myself."
  • (Willem Dafoe) "There was a time -- when I -- fed from golden chalices. But now -- Don't look at me that way."
  • (Willem Dafoe) "Go to hell, Murnau."
  • (Willem Dafoe) "I don't think we need the writer any longer."
  • (Willem Dafoe) "I would like some makeup."
  • (John Malkovich) "Well, you don't get any."

John Malkovich as F.W. Murnau

  • (John Malkovich) "Ladies and gentlemen, this is Max Schreck, who will be portraying our vampire, Count Orlock. As you no doubt have heard, Max's methods are somewhat -- unconventional, but -- I am sure you will come to respect his artistry in this matter."
  • (John Malkovich) "Why him, you monster? Why not the -- script girl?"
  • (Willem Dafoe) "Oh. The script girl. I'll eat her later."
  • (John Malkovich) "Albin, collect the wooden stake and return it to its rightful place; it is necessary for the final frame, to remind us of the inadequacies of our plans, our contingencies, every missed train and failed picnic, every lie to a child."
  • (John Malkovich) "Time will no longer be a dark spot on our lungs. They will no longer say 'you had to have been there', because the fact is, Albin, we were."
  • (John Malkovich) "I think we have it."
  • (John Malkovich) "Our battle, our struggle, is to create art. Our weapon is the moving picture. Because we have the moving picture, our paintings will grow and recede; our poetry will be shadows that lengthen and conceal; our light will play across living faces that laugh and agonize; and our music will linger and finally overwhelm, because it will have a context as certain as the grave. We are scientists engaged in the creation of memory -- but our memory will neither blur nor fade."
  • (John Malkovich) "They don't need to act. They need to be."
  • (John Malkovich) "Why would you possibly want to be in a play when you could be in a film?"
  • (Catherine McCormack) "An audience gives me life. This -- thing only takes it from me."
  • (John Malkovich) "Go ahead. Eat the writer. That will leave you explaining how your character gets to Bremen."
