Apparently, superstar actor Johnny Depp wasn't just showing off his knowledge of early horror cinema when he recently revealed that his take on the vampire Barnabas Collins in director Tim Burton's Dark Shadows adaptation was inspired by "classic" movie vampires like Max Schreck in Nosferatu, a Symphony of Horror. Empire recently released two new photos from the set of the movie — one featuring Depp as Collins, who was awakened in the 1970s after a 200-year slumber; the other featuring Michelle Pfeiffer as Elizabeth Collins Stoddard, the matriarch of the Collins family in the '70s — and Depp's splayed (and sufficiently bloodied) talon-like fingers in one of the images immediately brings to mind that classic image of Nosferatu ascending the stairs from the 1922 movie.
