Full video of Nosferatu eine Symphonie des Grauens (1922)


This German 1922 classic was the first version of Bram Stoker’s Dracula to be filmed. Due to copyright issues at the time, the names of characters, locations and other details were changed but the film is still far more sympathetic to the original than many that followed.

Released 90 years ago, the FW Murnau-directed silent film is still striking and the scenes with Max Shreck as Count Orlock – the Dracula-inspired character – are unforgettable. Count Orlock’s rat-like features are unlike anything in the original book but the haunting imagery have made this film one of the best Dracula adaptations of all time.

It is no exaggeration to suggest that if you watch this film you will become more intelligent, better looking, people will like you more and you will probably make more money. Seriously though, Nosferatu is a must see for any horror fan and you can watch it here.
