I remember seeing a movie when I was ten about the making of Nosferatu, but the character of Max Schreck was an actual vampire. I recall a scene with him explaining that he is too old to create other vampires and grabs a bat out of mid-air to eat. I would like to know the title of this movie.

The movie is Shadow of the Vampire starring Willem Dafoe, John Malkovich, Udo Kier, and comedian Eddie Izzard. It was directed by E. Elias Merhige (director of the disturbing masterpiece Begotten).

Willem Dafoe played the vampire and looked like this:

In the movie he was a real vampire who caused havoc on the set by eating people like the script girl.

The trailer can be seen here.

I'm surprised you didn't suggest this be moved to movies.stackexchange.com/questions :-) –  Paulster2 Jun 15 at 14:06
    
@Paulster2 It didn't occur to me. I lump Vampires in with "Fantasy," I guess. If you think it's a better fit over there, someone can move it. I don't know how. Do you just flag it for a Mod or is it something I just don't have the Rep to do yet? –  Meat Trademark Jun 15 at 14:48
