This is truly a great vampire flick. Brooding atmosphere and a terrifying score. Also, you have Klaus Kinski and Donald Pleasance in this movie. What more could you want?

lots of stuff to enjoy IMO, sometimes ironically. i'm a sucker for anything with pretty atmosphere, also worth it just for the shot of nosferatu in the coffin, juxtaposed with the next shot being of the stake sharpening right next to him is pretty funny. definitely a cult classic for a reason. also worth it just for the score

The film has its strengths, but it's clearly not in the league of Herzog. Venice is put to great use and occasionally there's a really beautiful shot that frustratingly suggests what this film could have been instead of what it is. Christopher Plummer is wonderful as usual, though he mostly fades from the picture in the second half. Donald Pleasance is used even less. The Vangelis-esque music is the real star of the film. It essentially is a Vangelis score with how closely the temp-tracking was followed. So there are reasons to watch, especially if you're curious about how they made a sequel to an arthouse masterpiece that asked for no sequel. There just isn't any story here or any characters you care about, and the attempts at artistry aren't good enough or consistent enough to make up for that. The occasional presence of modern vehicles and 80s fashion clashes needlessly with the old world setting too. You can call this film an attempt, that's for sure, but it's not the most satisfying watch. For the curious only, I'd say.

Great locations and cinematography, but generally not a fan of the Euro-sleaze approach to vampire movies. Plus, an incoherent plot with no momentum and terrible dialog.
