"Nosferatu" is a starling effective example of horror in the early dawn of Hollywood and the silent age of films. It truly emphasizes it's "symphony of horror" with its wonderful organ and string filled soundtrack. It's got lingering images that disturb and unnerve viewers. It has the notion of a plague moving around Europe. It pays respectful homage to its source material while not feeling redundant or cliche like many of its vampire film counterparts that came later. It's a prime example of just how efficient the silent age of cinema was. And boy is it creepy.
