Get in the mood for the Boise Art Museum’s coming exhibit “Vampires and Wolf Men” with a screening of one of the scariest movies ever made — 1922’s silent feature “Nosferatu.” Though it was not the first vampire movie, director F.W. Murnau’s film set the standard for the genre by dancing the line between nightmare and reality and presenting a riveting performance by Max Schreck as Count Orlok, the Dracula-line vampire. The art exhibit opens Feb. 1.
