Nosferatu the Vampyre

Still image from the film Nosferatu the Vampyre
A chillingly enigmatic Klaus Kinski stars as Count Dracula in Werner Herzog’s hypnotic homage to F.W. Murnau’s 1922 classic of German Expressionism. Recalling his earlier Enigma of Kaspar Hauser (1974) and Heart of Glass (1976), Herzog’s version of the Dracula mythos depicts a world where the only thing more sublimely frightening than an undead vampire is the thin veneer separating rational, bourgeois society from utter madness. Also starring Bruno Ganz and Isabelle Adjani as Jonathan and Lucy Harker, Nosferatu represents Dracula as another Herzogian existential (anti-) hero, trailing the terrors of nature in his wake while also unveiling the destructive superstitions at civilization’s margins.
