Nosferatu the Vampyre

Count Dracula moves from Transylvania to Wismar, spreading the Black Plague across the land. Only a woman pure of heart can bring an end to his reign of horror.

Werner Herzog's Nosferatu nicely blends its director's sensibility with that of its inspiration. Klaus Kinski steps in for Max Schreck as the ghoulish Count Dracula, who journeys from Transylvania to the German hometown of Bruno Ganz and Isabelle Adjani.

“Kinski takes the wide-eyed, lonely maniacism of Aguirre, to its logical extreme, making for one of the most demented, creepy vampire portrayals of a genre that's had its share of them. But Herzog's direction is what sets his Nosferatu apart. Using familiar elements in a new way, he creates a deeply unsettling film that doesn't rely so much on its power to shock as its power to disturb. By lingering uncomfortably on such images as a banquet table decked out for a feast in a town square overrun with rats, Herzog instills in his film a hypnotic, dreamlike quality.”- Sound on Sight
