I saw an inferior version years ago. I will definitely watch this Kino version. German expressionism after the Great War was very dark and foreboding, should be no surprise based on their suffering after the war. I will have to do some academic research on this in more detail.

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...

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.
