Customer Review

on 17 February 2006
Of all the films based on the novel Dracula by Bram Stoker (and ther've been alot) this is by far the best. The irony is in the fact Stokers wife tried to get it destroyed! She got close but thankfully didn't succeed because this film is a must see for any self respecting film fan.
F.W. Murnau shows off his substantial directing prowess to the full. It's haunting, dreamlike and at times even disturbing and the fact that it's a silent film only adds to the eerie quality. The new soundtrack (full to the brim with ticking clocks, rolling waves and keeing wind) is sublime. Max Shrek shines as the evil Count Orlock, bringing a sense of dignity and even vunerablity to the part some consider a fore-runner to Boris Karloffs portrayal of Frankenstien's monster.
It's like watching a painting come to life. This film is art and entertainment rolled into one.
