Classic horror that should be seen by all genre fans. The scare factor doesn't hold up, obviously, but Schreck still makes a compelling and creepy villain. It's a well done film, regardless of age. One of the most memorable silent films ever made, for good reason.

The soundtrack was frighting and the main vampire Count Orlok or people call him Nosferatu is one scary and creepy Bad-ass vampire. the movie is in black and white and that makes the movie more scary because if Count Orlok was in color he will look like Gargamel or count chocula, so if they did a remake of this movie in the future they should make it in to black and white. the nick picks that I have on the movie is the movie is a silent movie and you have to read it and don't get me wrong I like silent movies but if your a fast reader then you are going to think that this movie is slow because the words are they for 1 that is my review of this movie and I really loved it more then the remake in the 70's.

I don't think I had the best print (or soundtrack) available for viewing, so an updated version (ala Metropolis) would probably help things along. That being said, Nosferatu has an incredible atmosphere and Max Schreck is simply creepy as they get at Count Orlock. If you like classic horror, make time for this.

"You can't escape destiny by running away." The creepy score, realistic make-up, and set location was creatively executed to bring the horror. Harker leaves Nina to be at Count Dracula's castle. He reads a book "In 1443 the first Nosferatu was born" Notes about vampires are displayed. Nina gets sick with a disease. Only a woman with a pure heart can cure the disease. Only qualm I had was the snail paced movements in certain scenes. Nosferatu the Vampire is an influential horror film, the simple yet elegant direction and performances made it horrific.

An important move from a historic perspective.....

I remember watching this movie in a movie club I used to be a member of where they showed weird and rare movies, this was before the days of internet. The idea behind the movie is a good and the story is good, that's why I don't give it half a star. But guys, wake up. This is a movie from 1924. To calling this a masterpiece and a good movie is like saying a toddlers painting is better than a Nordrum painting and support the argument with they are equally good because they could not do any better at the time it was made. It's an interesting watch based on a movie history perspective, but this is really horrible, and not in a good way.

I am against puritism that claim that everything was so much better in the good old days, because it really wasn't. It's an important movie, no doubt, b...

The Birth of Horror

Nosferatu is undoubtedly one of the most influential horror films of all time. F.W. Murnau puts together an extremely creepy atmosphere in the film through some excellent cinematography. The score is eerie and brilliant, an absolute must for a silent film such as this one. The special effects are quite good considering that the film was released in 1922. The acting is effective as Max Schreck shows an incredible amount of menace as Count Orlok. However, despite its obvious influence the film is quite flawed. There is very little character development (not too surprising) and the viewer has no opportunity to sympathize with anyone in the film. Regardless, Nosferatu is worth watching because of its influence on modern horror films and creepy atmosphere. Anyone who enjoys horror film...
