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
107min
Digital
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.

Also available on BFI Player.
