Nosferatu the Vampyre

Noseferatu: Phantom der Nacht

Werner Herzog’s Dracula is mesmerising, melancholy, and burdened with his own curse.

Image from Nosferatu the Vampyre

West Germany-France 1979
Dir Werner Herzog
With Klaus Kinski, Isabelle Adjani, Bruno Ganz
English subtitles
Certificate 12A

Vampire movies are predicated on the notion that suffering is contagious and ever-increasing, but Herzog adds in the tedious misery of immortality; Kinski’s Nosferatu, far from being a ravenous seducer, is wretched and weary in his solitude. Shot almost as if it were a silent movie, this loose remake of FW Murnau’s classic is virtually cosmic – but mesmerisingly beautiful – in its wry pessimism.
