YMMV / Shadow of the Vampire
- Narm: Some of Schreck's expressions and gestures go over the top, mildly speaking.
- Newer Than They Think: One of the characters puts Murnau along with Eisenstein as one of the greatest directors of all time... despite Eisenstein not having directed any film yet in 1921.
- Squick: Shreck plucks a bat out of the air mid flight, bites it's head off and drains it's blood. The look on his drinking buddies' faces says it all.
- Tearjerker: Schreck's impressions of the novel, Dracula, as he describes it as a sad story about a Romanian Lord reduced to a lonely undead monster.
