If you like this movie and our channel, please subscribe: | “Nosferatu, eine Symphonie des Grauens” (translated as “Nosferatu, a symphony of horror” or simply “Nosferatu”) is a classic 1922 German Expressionist horror film, directed by F. W. Murnau, starring Max Schreck as the vampire Count Orlok. The film, shot in 1921 and released in 1922, was an unauthorized adaptation of Bram Stoker’s “Dracula”, with names and other details changed because the studio could not obtain the rights to the novel (for instance, “vampire” became “Nosferatu” and “Count Dracula” became “Count Orlok”).

Directed by F. W. Murnau, produced by Enrico Dieckmann and Albin Grau, screenplay by Henrik Galeen, based on “Dracula” by Bram Stoker, starring Max Schreck, Gustav von Wangenheim, Greta Schröder, Alexander Granach, Ruth Landshoff and Wolfgang Heinz.

  1. 51:52 Fucksake! Just realized they hold that shot because you can see his shadow advancing on the captain on the left. Superb attention to detail for such an old film.

    A shame Murnau died so young. A master of mood who doubtless would've continued to write the book on cinematic atmosphere had he lived.

  2. Easy to follow. Each scene its own story. Interesting, like when he pulls out the paper covered in odd markings. The music seems to be in charge of pacing the story and setting a thoughtful tone while the audience is engaged by the movements on screen as well as the steady pace at which the story unfolds. The lack of verbal communication heightens the sense of poeticism when speech is conveyed by the blank screen subtitles. Each scene is an exact and intended image. Each cut is quick but never rushed, making the viewer feel like the story is unfolding tensely. The close ups of animals, used to incite some feeling(maybe a different one coinciding with each animal) is something I have seen used by another German filmmaker, Werner Herzog.

  3. Of the countless vampire films, I think that this one is the scariest. This vampire is by far the creepiest.
    I can personally attest to the
    'darkness' of the German forests. A Grimm's fairy-tale ? You betcha !
