Nosferatu the Vampyre

Herzog’s typically personal contribution to vampire lore is both a luminous tribute to the great Gothic landmarks of an earlier era of German cinema and a remarkably resonant and powerful film in its own right. While echoing both Stoker’s Dracula and Murnau’s Nosferatu, Herzog’s account of the Harkers’ fateful encounter with the Transylvanian count is considerably more than just another horror movie, in part thanks to the melancholy of Kinski’s remarkable performance.
