Movie Review: Nosferatu, the Vampyre

nosferatu

Written and directed by Werner Herzog.
1979.

Herzog’s interpretation of the original German film is eerie, atmospheric, and somehow apocalyptic — as a good vampire narrative should be. Kinski’s vampyre is forbidden to participate in his own apocalypse, here confined to a German village, a household. A woman’s heart.

“Death is not the worst. There are things more horrible than death.” — Count Dracula
