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.

One of the first silent movies I've ever watched and definitely the creepiest looking Vampire in history. Nosferatu came to my attention at a very young age from believe it or not a Spongebob episode and now that I'm older and seeing this for the first time I can see why this is a must for Vampire and overall horror fans. The restoration is a big highlight for this and Shudder always delivers on getting these. Pretty good story and a solid creepy look to this film plus Nosferatu himself make this a classic.
Top vampire movie ever, unforgettable.
Terrifying and incredibly shot, despite it's clear antisemitism.
