Crew
Directed by F. W. Murnau


A cornerstone of the horror film, F.W. Murnau's NOSFERATU: A SYMPHONY OF HORROR is resurrected in an HD edition mastered from the acclaimed 35mm restoration by the Friedrich-Wilhelm-Murnau-Stiftung. Backed by an orchestral performance of Hans Erdmann's 1922 score, this edition offers unprecedented visual clarity and historical faithfulness to the original release version.

An unauthorized adaptation of Bram Stoker's Dracula, NOSFERATU remains to many viewers the most unsettling vampire film ever made, and its bald, spidery vampire, personified by the diabolical Max Schreck, continues to spawn imitations in the realm of contemporary cinema.

Germany 1922 Color Tinted 94 Min.
5.1 Surround 2.0 stereo
Directed by F.W. Murnau
Screenplay by Henrik Galeen
Photographed by Fritz Arno Wagner

Reviews

"It doesn't scare us, but it haunts us. It shows not that vampires can jump out of shadows, but that evil can grow there, nourished on death." - Roger Ebert

"If you don't own it, by all means get this latest remastering." - Huffington Post

"This Kino Classics Blu-ray edition of the film arrives with remarkable picture quality and a splendid audio presentation. With a nice, healthy collection of supplements, the overall package is a must for any cinephile's collection of classics." - High Def Digest "It's not just a great horror movie. It's a poem of horror, a symphony of dread, a film so rapt, mysterious and weirdly lovely it haunts the mind long after it's over." -The Los Angeles Times

"A masterpiece of the German silent cinema and easily the most effective version of Dracula on record." -Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader

"Watching Nosferatu is like standing in the same room as death itself." -Slant Magazine
