Really Awful Movies: Ep 119 – Nosferatu the Vampyre



An art-house vampire flick, Nosferatu the Vampyre is the brainchild of auteur German filmmaker Werner Herzog. Originally known as Phantom der Nacht, it’s set in northern Germany and Romania’s Transylvania and is a pretty faithful redo of the 1922 silent Dracula classic, Nosferatu.

The film stars Klaus Kinski, Bruno Ganz and Isabelle Adjani.

On this episode, we compare this version with the indelible Weimar-era classic and break down the film oeuvre of Herzog and his frequent favorite Klaus Kinski.
