Genuine: The Tragedy of a Vampire

Genuine: The Tragedy of a Vampire ★★

“Let me go up there this time, just this once...”
“No, my angel. No, my beauty. Up there is life and its ugliness. Here alone shall you smile. Here alone you shall be completely happy.”

Hooptober 9: 
(1/1) German Silent
17/34 film challenge 

*Watched the full 1.28 hour version. 
I’ve seen a few ailments at this point including The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (1920), which I prefer over this (as most would I suspect). The set design is done by the same guy which is probably my favorite aspect outside of the theatrical performances and costuming. I would love to see this made as a modern film but have the script/storylines a little more cleaned up. I see the potential it has to be good but the constraints of the time are highly evident.
