Creepy, truly creepy. Max Schreck as Count Orlok is beautifully terrifying. The portrayal is oustanding and truly spooky. This silent film has achieved without any words what most films today can't with all their budget and special effects. The film is excellently made and is one of the best horror films I have seen. Truly haunting.

The single most important film of the German silent renaissance. F.W. Murnau's eerie, haunting, iconic film is unforgettable. A true classic! This extraordinary Kino Ultimate DVD Edition finally gives the greatest vampire film its due with a glorious restoration including all new color tinting, intertitles, and the original 1922 score.      ):-=

"Nosferatu" is easily the most iconic and poetic vision of the vampire ever caught on film and remains the signature classic of Murnau's career. A gripping, gorgeous film that has been superbly restored in this excellent Kino 2-disc DVD Edition...

NOSFERATU
THE ULTIMATE DVD EDITION

A cornerstone of the horror film, F.W. Murnau's NOSFERATU is triumphantly
reborn in this breathtaking new restoration by the F.W. Murnau Foundation.
Backed by an orchestral performance of Hans Erdmann's 1922 score (recorded
in 5.1 stereo surround), this Kino International edition is derived from a
new high-definition transfer of Murnau's masterpiece, with unprecedented
visual clarity and historical faithfulness to the original release version.
This double-disc collection presents the film with the original German
intertitles as well as with newly-translated Englishintertitles. Accompanying the film is a
52-minute documentary by Luciano Berriatúa which provides a detailed account
of the production and explores the filmmakers' involvement in the occult.
