    Idk what it is about Herzog. His goals and worldview cohere well with my own but every time I watch his movies, they just end up boring me. Perhaps I don't find his aesthetic sense disciplined enough. The reworking of the story toward the plague and the medieval dance of death is interesting but Bergman did the latter better.

    a few days ago i was on a school trip and one evening when i had basically nothing to do i stumbled upon the english language version of this film, when that happened there were not evn two weeks since i had watched the german language version of the film, but even though i foud the movie to be really boring the first time around i still decided to give it another chance because i really like Werner Herzog as…

    Nosferatu The Vampyre is such an atmospheric movie, and I was quite surprised at how good it truly was. I mean, before I began watching the film, I started to have doubts because I'm not sure if it was a good idea to retell an absolutely classic story. But, to be frank, Werner Herzog's version is the one I now prefer over the original version. And I am sure that if I watch Nosferatu The Vampyre again in the future,…

    Soft gothic aesthetics plus existential dracula?

    Definitely still in my all-time top 10. I have no idea how many times I've seen this but it absolutely never gets old. And not to plagiarize Tony Zhou but seriously every frame of this looks like a painting - I was so caught up in the weirdness of it on my first few watches that I think I had kind of neglected to notice how goddamn beautiful it all is.

    Weirdly enough I have heard more about 1979’s version of Nosferatu than I have of the 1922 version. Some of the things I have heard is that it is true to the original as well as better and pretty scary. After watching the 1922 movie I had to watch this version to see for myself.

    We all know the story of Dracula by now. Johnathan who works in real estate is sent to Transylvania to sign off on a deal…

    A classic horror story remade with atmospheric visuals, a contemplative style, careful characterization, and a dreadful tone throughout.

    I have not seen Murnau's version. I thought I did, but I was mistook it for Carl Theodor Dreyer's Vampyr. That said, I don't think it will top this when I do get around to seeing it.

    i must say that i was disapointed with this film, i expected much more from Werner Herzog quality wise, the film is much better than the 1922 original (a film i absolutely hate and belive should have been destroyed like it was supposed to), but it still barely okay.
    the things that pull it down for me is that it was just unessisarily slow, i like slow movies but this was just way to much and for no apparent reason…

    Klaus Kinski sitting unmoving in the shadows while in full Nosferatu makeup just might be the most unnerving image I've encountered in a horror film. Most monsters are scarier unseen than seen. Not so with Kinski's Dracula. He brings a presence to the screen that's unlike anything I've experience in a movie.

    Of all the versions of Dracula I've seen (including the original Nosferatu) this is my favorite. Herzog brings an elemental aesthetic to this movie that's not dissimilar to…
