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.

Its an Iconic one but its not the best But its definitely a fun watch as well.
When I first saw this (A Public Domain release.) I wasn't a fan. Then I saw it with a proper orchestral soundtrack and it all became so much more vibrant. And this music does the same. The best cinematic version of Dracula!
It was a decent watch for a silent film 👍
This is the only silent film I’ve seen and will admit it was a little boring, but the fact this was made 100 years ago is crazy and is interesting in itself! Also an interesting fact I saw is that this movie has the first depiction of a vampire being harmed by sunlight!? I would say defo worth a watch for the experience but really not something I would watch again in a heartbeat.
can't rate this 5 stars just because my attention span dwindled a bit during this, but it's a silent film so what do you expect? but it's phenomenal and a classic.
