Now this is how remakes are done right

I never thought a remake would be on the same level of greatness and get's that same uncomfortable feeling as the original, both of those films should hold up today and that's the best thing ever.
The story to Nosferatu the Vampyre are main character Jonathan Harker who get's sent to Count Dracula, who is looking to buy a house in Varna. Upon seeing a photo of Lucy, Jonathan's wife, he makes the trip - with death following in his footsteps.
Remakes to me can turn out in many different way's if you look at it's history of films. There are remakes that are known has classic and way better than the original and it's films like: John Carpenter's The Thing and the 1986 film The Fly that's been kept in everybody's hearts has one of the greats. But when there's good there's always bad and boy do we have some unspeakably bad remakes out there like..well every remake that ever came out around the late 90's or the early 2000's. Remakes seem to everywhere now if it's horror, Sci-Fi, action or drama you can't escape of what I like to call it The Curse of the Remade.
But Nosferatu the Vampyre ( Nosferatu: Phantom der Nacht ) in my opinion is the best remake I've seen since The Fly and here's why.
The movie's atmosphere and it's slow build up suspense is the top key things that made this movie kind of chilling at times and really glued me to the big screen with those two supporting the film. That's what makes a great horror movie, no stupid and annoying jump scars, no mindless blood and gore, just a creepy setting and the atmosphere around the movie really hold up the film Has I already said before.
Klaus Kinski who played Nosferatu did probably did one of the best performance in this movie. He got the character so perfectly well that it's like the actor is doing a small little tribute to Max Schreck original role in the 1922 film, and a awesome tribute it was.
Now for problems: ....
Overall Nosferatu has brilliant directing, the acting from everyone was great, the cinematography was some of the best I've seen and the sets & designs was just perfect in this movie.
