Product Description

Werner Herzog's remake of F.W. Murnau's classic gothic horror 'Nosferatu' (1922). Estate agent Jonathan Harker (Bruno Ganz) arrives at Count Dracula (Klaus Kinski)'s castle in Transylvania to complete the sale of a property in Wismar. Despite having been warned that the Count is a vampire, Jonathan remains skeptical. His haunting stay at the castle rids him of any doubt, however, and in an attempt to escape he injures himself and ends up in hospital. Meanwhile, Dracula moves to Wismar where he preys on Jonathan's wife Lucy (Isabelle Adjani)...

Conceived and executed with passionate connoisseurship ***** --Peter Bradshaw, Guardian

One of Herzog's most bizarre, resonant and fascinating films ***** --Tim Robey, Telegraph

Contemplative and oddly beautiful... the incomparable Klaus Kinski dominates the film as the lonely vampire***** --Wendy Ide, The Times --This text refers to an alternate DVD edition.

A quick review to confirm that this Region 2 German Blu Ray DOES contain in the special features section - the english spoken version of this film (Nosferatu the vampire) besides the German main feature(Werner Herzog shot two versions of ths film one English spoken, the other in German) Picture is stunning and is a superb upgrade from the Anchor Bay DVD version. Only the German spoken version comes in a 5.1 surrond mix.

When i saw this movie for the first time I was stunned...although Werner Herzog is one of my favourite directors I was sceptical at first about Nosferatu because i was afraid that it will be much weaker than his predecessor....I couldn't be more wrong with this assumption...the movie is excellent.....there never was any vampire movie that even tried to give us such a strong portrait (both physically and psychicaly) of a creature that continued to live through ages..." Can You Imagine enduring centuries....experiencing the same futility every day" with this sentence Nosferatu explains the whole horror of his existence...and you feel some sort of sorrow for him even though you know that he is a monster ho pray on human blood to live.....unforgettable!. Film is beautifully shot by old Herzog's associate Jorg Schmidt-Reitwein and the music is excellently chosen to strenghten the whole atmosphere....pieces from Wagner's Das Rheingold are included here....and the cast is perfectly chosen, especially Kinski in the title role....possibly one of the best vampire movie among such gems as Carl Theodor Dreier's Vampyr, or Murnau's original Nosferatu

I pre-ordered the steel book release of this title just over a week ago. Amazon delivered to me today (Sunday the 18th of May 2014) a day ahead of release and on a Sunday to boot! Top service!
The steel book itself is lovely. The finish on the casing is silver and not white which is how the picture on Amazon's site looks. The reverse is plain.
You can always rely on the BFI to revere the titles they put out and they certainly have done justice to Nosferatu The Vampyre.
The picture quality is excellent with just the right amount of grain embedded in the image. Both the English and German versions are included with a 5.1 sound bump up for the German soundtrack on the German version.
We also get a feature length commentary with the director, Werner Herzog, which is very informative. A short (13 minute) on set documentary follows and also included is the original trailer.
As usual BFI have included an informative booklet which is 18 pages long and contains an essay about the film by Laurie Johnson plus a review of the film from 1979 culled from the pages of Sight & Sound magazine.
All in all it's a fantastic package of a very under rated film.
Highly recommended.

It's a very good movie (it's simply Herzog), but if you look for a horror movie and only a horror movie you may be very dissapointed. It is not a horror movie, this is more than just a movie of some well defined kind. This may be like some variations on "Heart of Glass", but in a different costume. This is not a movie for closed-minded horror consumers. This is Herzog with all his patience, time he takes, hipnotic visions he shows and the same madness or determination in Kinski's eyes. Great photos and unique atmosphere - flying bats, plague-or-what in the town, overall atmosphere of madness, insane dance at the end. Great movie, deep like Herzog and Kinski and yet simply horrifyng like Dracula. I'm not dissapointed with Herzog one more time.

Werner Herzog's style of filmaking is not to everyone's taste so fans of blood and guts should stay clear of this wonderful film.The pace is slow,but Klaus Kinski is the epitome of suffering as the tired and weary Count Dracula.The whole film has a dreamlike quality and some of the scenes such as when the plague hits Bremmen and the citizens throw away their posessions and take to the streets are very atmospheric.The DVD has two discs so the film can be watched in English or German as it was shot in both languages at the same time.There are also three theatrical trailers including a spanish (NOSFERATU VAMPIRO DE LA NOCHE)one. Finally a documentary of the making of the film and interveiw with director Werner Herzog is included.All in all a beautifully shot film with an excellent portrayal from Klaus Kinski,but as stated earlier action and blood'n'gore fans should avoid it like the plague which Dracula brings with him to Bremmen in the film.

Herzog is one of my favourite directors, and this is one of the best-ever Dracula adaptations. Though filmed in 1979 but every frame feels utterly out-of-time, as if trapped in a previous century, giving a wonderful feel to the film. A remake of F.W. Murnau's silent 1922 classic of the same name, Herzog remains largely faithful to Stoker's novel, while stripping down the plot to the basics, allowing imagery and atmosphere to tell his story.
So Jonathan Harker (Bruno Ganz) is dispatched by the hunchbacked, cackling estate agent Renfield (Roland Toper) across the Carpathian mountains to the starkly beautiful Transylvania where he must seek out Count Dracula (Klaus Kinski) and secure his signature for the castle he is selling. Despite the hindrances - his beloved Lucy's feeling of impending doom, warnings from the gypsies of the region and a distinct lack of transport, Harker finds Dracula's castle and gets the signature he requires. But the cost is high - the Count feasts on Harker's blood and leaves him stranded in the mountains while he heads to civilisation in a coffin, in search of Lucy and fresh victims.
Nosferatu is perfectly cast - Ganz is a stoic, determined lover, Adjani the ethereal beauty whose psycho-sexual link with Dracula leads her to make an ultimate, tragic sacrifice. And Kinski delivers maybe his finest performance - gone is the creepy charmer that Lugosi and Lee brought to the screen; this Dracula is a pathetic, sickening old man who can only strike when his victims are at their most vulnerable. And the rats... the Count's journey from Transylvania is accompanied by thousands of filthy rodents that set about infecting the town with the plague.
