    "Nosferatu the Vampyre" es un remake tan efectivo que se convierte en una cinta valiosa en sí misma. Werner Herzog toma la conocida historia de Dracula, modifica sus detalles y la distorsiona ligeramente para crear un tributo a la clásica original y una brillante reinvención con el inconfundible estilo Herzogiano al mismo tiempo.
    La cinta contiene muchas imágenes poderosas pero ninguna como el rostro pálido y perturbador de Klaus Kinski como el Conde. Esta crea un paralelo entre la llegada del Conde a la ciudad con la plaga bubónica. "Nosferatu the Vampyre" es una cinta imperdible para fans de las historias de vampiros. Muy recomendable.

    "Nosferatu the Vampyre" es un magistral homenaje a la gema expresionista original de 1922.

    Pero soy un bastardo frenético, y este ejercicio artístico excluye. Está plagada de una teatralidad que no disfruto, un ritmo deliberadamente pausado y un guión en exceso despojado de cualquier dificultad, sólo para poner en primer plano la cinematografía, que es aquí protagonista maravillosa y absoluta.

    Kinski es un Dracula maravilloso. Lucy Harker hipnotiza. Y el joven Hitler, Bruno Ganz como Jonathan Harker, también destaca. Pero…

    Okay, here is a review that has been long overdue, so I'm sorry if I don't cover every single aspect of the film in great detail. I remember all of what I liked and didn't like about it, thankfully, but obviously it doesn't shine as bright in my head as it did back when I had just watched it. Anyways... I have been looking forward to this one a lot. My plan was to watch the original first, since I…

    God I miss a good horror movie, the journey into the Carpathian mountains alone had more atmosphere than any of todays CGI attempts.

    There have been several classic films based on the story of Johathan Harker, his wife Lucy, Dr. Van Helsing, and their meeting with Count Dracula, Murnau's original NOSFERATU, Browning's DRACULA, Fisher's DRACULA/HORROR OF DRACULA - all of these directors managed to add their own interpretations to the story, add an element not present in other versions. Another I would add is Herzog's audacious re-imagining of Murnau's masterpiece. While he carefully recreates sequences from the original, often staged as a tableau…

    Gorgeous and meditative, Herzog's reimagining of the Dracula tale brought hitherto unseen levels of pathos to the Count's character, generating audience sympathy for his lonesome and loveless existence while not diminishing the malice and malevolence that suffuses every scene in which he is present.

    Here's the thing with Nosferatu the Vampyre, it's a take on the old Dracula tale and as I've said before, there's just something about the Dracula story that I don't like. I've never found it that interesting and it's always sort of bored me. I really like Dracula though, vampires are creepy monsters and I believe that there's a lot of things to be told about them, but we still always get the same old story in a shape or…

    The master being masterful. Herzog is unbeatable in my eyes. There's such a lot of room in his films. Thinking space. Kinski is mesmerising and it must be the most highly trained bat in history.

    Jonathan and Lucy live in Wismar and the Count wants a house there. Varna is a port on the Black Sea, close to Dracula's castle.

    Werner Herzog's unique retelling of the Count Dracula story which very much focuses on the loneliness and desolation of the vampire. I watched this only a year or so ago and was a little disappointed, but watching it on the BFI set is like seeing it with new eyes. As with most of the early…
