An iconic film of the German expressionist cinema, and one of the most famous of all silent movies, F. W. Murnau's 'Nosferatu. A Symphony of Horror' continues to haunt and, indeed, terrify modern audiences with the unshakable power of its images. By teasing a host of occult atmospherics out of dilapidated set-pieces and innocuous real-world locations alike, Murnau captured on celluloid the deeply-rooted elements of a waking nightmare, and launched the signature "Murnau-style" that would change cinema history forever.
In this first-ever screen adaptation of Bram Stoker's 'Dracula', a simple real-estate transaction leads an intrepid businessman deep into the superstitious heart of Transylvania. There he encounters the otherworldly Count Orlok portrayed by the legendary Max Schreck who soon after embarks upon a cross-continental voyage to take up residence in a distant new land...
F. W. Murnau's surreal 1922 cine-fable remains the original and landmark entry in the entire global tradition of "the horror film". The 'Masters of Cinema' Series is proud to present, at long last, 'Nosferatu. A Symphony of Horror' in its definitive restoration, complete with original intertitles and accompanied by the score that played with the film at the time of its initial release.
