Nosferatu: A Symphony of Horror is a 1922 German Expressionist horror film directed by F. W. Murnau.  It was an unauthorized adaptation of Bram Stoker's Dracula, resulting in a court ruling that ordered all copies of the film be destroyed. Thankfully, a few prints of Nosferatu survived, and the film came to be regarded as an influential masterpiece of silent cinema.The film was released in the United States on June 3, 1929, seven years after its original premiere in Germany, where it instantly became a hit success.

This silent horror film tells the story of the mysterious Count Orlok (Max Schreck) who summons Thomas Hutter (Gustav von Wangenheim) to his remote Transylvanian castle in the mountains. The eerie Orlok seeks to buy a house near Hutter and his wife, Ellen (Greta Schroeder). After Orlok reveals his vampire nature, Hutter struggles to escape the castle, knowing that Ellen is in grave danger. Meanwhile Orlok's servant, Knock (Alexander Granach), prepares for his master to arrive at his new home.

The movie website "Rotten Tomatoes" ranks Nosferatu as the second best horror film of all time.

Staff organist at the Michigan Theater in Ann Arbor, Fr Andrew Rogers returns to HIT to accompany this classic silent horror flick. A great way to "Get Your Halloween On!"

Jessica “Jess” Meuse  is a singer, songwriter, and guitarist from Slapout, Alabama who began performing in public at age 10.  Music has always been part of Jessica’s life and she plays several instruments - she is classically trained on violin, and self-taught at guitar and piano.

Meuse states she is, "influenced by virtually every genre of music." though she calls her style "a blend of southern rock with alternative and rock n’ roll."  Her music was once described  "rock...infused with country and metal."   Her musical influences include Coldplay, Miranda Lambert, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Stevie Nicks, Death Cab for Cutie, Bruno Mars, and Shinedown.

When Jess was 20, she won the state-wide artist showcase, Stars of Alabama. In 2013, she took first place in a local singer/songwriter competition at the Workplay Theater in Birmingham, Alabama. Since then she has opened for both national and local acts across the southeast.  Jessica was a contestant on Season 3 of NBC’s The Voice in 2012, where she made it to the blind auditions. In summer 2013, she won a spot to perform a set at the Vans Warped Tour in Atlanta, Georgia.

In 2013-2014, Jess competed on the national television series American Idol®, finishing in 4th place. She became the first person in the history of the show to perform an original song, “Blue-Eyed Lie,” during the finals. She went on to tour with the Idols LIVE Tour in summer 2014, visiting 40 different cities in the United States and Canada. Post American Idol®, Jessica released her first independent single, “Done”, recorded and mixed by a small production team based in Los Angeles. On January 1, 2016, she released her second independent single, “Rio Grande”. She plans to release an EP as soon as possible and tour the country once more. Jess is actively seeking management, writing new material, and participating in as many musical opportunities as possible.
