Who's Scarier: The Phantom or Count Orlak?

In my final post of the day, I'd like to reflect upon my film class today. In it, we watched clips of Phantom of the Opera and Nosferatu, and then debated who was scarier, whether on today's CGI'd, big-toothed, hollow-eyed standards, or by the standards of our naive forefathers. I maintain that The Phantom just looks sad, and does not need any more ostrazation, while Count Orlak is pure eeeeevale. Also, he's fucking terrifying to look at.

The Phantom of the Opera


Count Orlok, the Nosferatu?

I leave it to you, my tiny little audience.
