Format: DVD
Instead of an action-packed, blood&gore laden, shallow, visually unassuming Hollywood-flick, you get an almost sinisterly dark and incredibly beautiful piece of art. Don't watch the English version, it lacks the atmosphere of the German version, probably due to the German actors' inability to cope well with the English language. Everything is more fluent with the German and this translates into better acting overall. If your German isn't fluent, then watch it with the English subtitles on.
This movie attempts to capture the deeper currents of the Vampire myth, to get to the heart of the curse that is embodied in Dracula. Klaus Kinski is brilliant as Count Dracula and makes the movie all by himself. Which isn't easy, as the director is obviously set on translating the vampire myth into something as close to believable or "real" as possible.
The scenes are long and cumbersome in places, that is true. But this only serves to work the sinister and dark atmosphere into the viewer. If you immerse yourself, then the movie is a thrilling experience.

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.

Don't be put off by it's slow pacing. NOSFERATU THE VAMPYRE is a horror masterpiece that, in my opinion, is one of the best vampire films around. It is only loosely a re-make of the classic Murnau film, but Herzog's version is a beautiful, dark and forboding movie. Sinister without being cack-yer-pants scary. Bleak without being depressing and some memorable scenes, especially that of 'Gary Numan lookalike', Klaus Kinskis world-weary vampire. Many failed to see the stygian quality, there are some very atmospheric scenes and a wonderful soundtrack. The imagery is spectacular. I feel it would be wrong to dismiss this film as rubbish because it isn't. It is a melodramatic movie worthy of a viewing from film and horror fans. The dubbing isn't too bad and the cover art alone is just excellent. Miss this and it's your loss.

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

Format: DVD
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.

Format: DVD
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.

Format: VHS Tape
This video should purify your VCR after watching too many Hollywood movies. Its rather like looking at an interactive Caspar David Friedrich painting whilst listening to Wagner in the company of the world's creepiest individual- its a very strange feeling. The sets are the real star of the film, with the rugged countryside contrasting beautifully with the Dutch town of Delft, which with the removal of all signs of modernity adds an amazing touch of authenticity. Further nice touches include the authentic gypsies, superb glass carriage, genuine period ship and of course the famous rats, which Herzog somehow got permission to release not only on the banks of a dutch canal, but also right in the town square! Like much else in this fantastic film, that will proably be never be allowed or attempted again. If this film was to be re-re-made again, the director would prabably dry to use CGI in every scene. That's a horrible thought.
Herzog uses a mere two drops of blood in the entire film, yet racks up the tension by somehow forcing us to share the fears of the protaganists as they enter new and unforseen situations; rather in the way of the blair witch project, its the expectation of impending doom that is frightening rather than anything that actually happens on screen. This film also contains the greatest prop of the century, namely count dracula's vile version of a cuckoo-clock which sits his sickening-dining room. Harker's character also bears a shocking resemblance to jonathon ross, which adds another disturbing twist to this classic film.
