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.

LOVED THIS!! straight up I thought it was going to be boring or I wouldn’t like it but I was absolutely wrong
This is a great remaster! I haven't seen Nosferatu with the music intact since the 2003 release that used Type O Negative's music came out. The music in this is so clear and sounds amazing through a good surround sound system. The picture is also vastly improved from the version I've been watching for the past 15 years. This is the definitive version of the film. Now for the film itself. Is this a ripoff of Bram Stoker's Dracula? Yes. Does that fact make this film unwatchable or any less engaging? No.
Still holds its own almost a century later.
Even though it's a silent movie, it's engaging. A ripoff of Bram Stoker's "Dracula," the film is well acted, and Nosferatu is especially terrifying.
