Directed by F.W. Murnau
F.W. Murnau's silent version of DRACULA is one of the greatest horror films ever made, thanks in large part to Max Schreck's still-terrifying performance as the bald vampire Nosferatu, sporting razor sharp fangs and long pointy fingernails. Murnau's brilliant use of scary shadows and atmospheric dread influenced countless vampire films and TV series - including DARK SHADOWS, BRAM STOKER'S DRACULA, BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER and the recent horror comedy WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS. Every horror fan should try to watch this at least once a year, in our opinion.

I'm in awe. The term "masterpiece" is sometimes overused, but this film defines cinematic masterpiece. It's stunning, gorgeous, surreal. I'm grateful that contemporary services like Shudder go out of their way to carry movies like this. Nosferatu is a masterpiece of German Expressionism and you owe it to yourself to take in this experience. It's a wonder.
Very overrated and hasn’t aged well at all, there’s nothing creepy about this movie, it’s closer to a comedy than a horror with its terrible acting.
You cannot go wrong with this classic masterpiece
Phenomenal unauthorized adaptation of Dracula. The movie oozes style and has genuine creepy presentation. a must watch for any serious horror fan.
