Figure 2: Shadow of the Vampire (2000)
A fantasy telling of the making of F.W. Murnaus 1922 Nosferatu, a symphony of horror; neither movie utilizes the pentagram in any form. In the original, an all-seeing eye appears on the cover of a book, while in this movie the director, played by John Malkovich, has covered his bedroom wall in warding signs, including a swastika.
