Origami Toy Monsters Kit
As a kid, one of my favorite movies was the horror classic Nosferatu. It
is silent and in black and white, but that makes the sinister shadows cast by the noiselessly creeping vampire all the more terrifying. In one scene,
Nosferatu suddenly throws open his coffin and stands up without bending. That’s how I wanted this vampire to wake!
