The Keep (1983)
Eva compares 'Molasar' to "a Golem". Molasar's Design looks similar to the Golem. Molasar offers to Dr. Cuza, just like a Golem, to protect the Jews. This was the first film version of the myth.
Eva compares 'Molasar' to "a Golem". Molasar's Design looks similar to the Golem. Molasar offers to Dr. Cuza, just like a Golem, to protect the Jews. This German Expressionist version is the most famous of the Golem films.
The vampire theme is present in the novel and the film. Both films are about a town where a supernatural evil force starts to kill people randomly. The voyage of Glaeken by ship is similar.
Molasar makes Dr. Cuza young and at the end old again, just like Mephisto does with Dr. Faust in Murnau's classic of German Expressionism. Dr. Cuza makes a deal with Molasar, just like Dr. Faust with Mephisto.Glaeken is similar to the Archangel in "Faust"(1926)..
