...[A] silent masterpiece...
...The bloodsucker flick that sired them all...
...A genius of silent cinema, Murnau uses a range of primitive but still startling techniques...
He's a thousand times freakier than any other screen Dracula, and Murnau suddenly kicks the film into Expressionist overdrive with the sequence of Nosferatu's ocean voyage... -- Grade: B+
...NOSFERATU inspired dozens of other Dracula films, none of them as artistic or unforgettable...
Sight and Sound
4 stars out of 5 -- [The film] remains the template of vampire cinema....Max Schreck still registers as one one of the eeriest ghouls of horror cinema.
...Haunting....The nightmarish appearance of Max Schreck as history's favorite vampire remains an indelible image of horror...
F.W. Murnau's German silent classic is the original--and some say most frightening--DRACULA adaptation, taking Bram Stoker's novel and turning it into a haunting, shadowy dream full of dread. Names had to be changed from the novel when Stoker's wife charged his novel was being filmed without proper permission. Running times vary depending upon versions of the film. Count Orlok, the rodentlike vampire frighteningly portrayed by Max Schreck, is perhaps the most animalistic screen portrayal of a vampire ever filmed. The design was copied by Werner Herzog in his 1979 remake and by Tobe Hooper for his telefilm of Stephen King's SALEM'S LOT that same year. NOSFERATU is an eerie, menacing film that should not be missed.
