Nosferatu the Vampyre (1979)

A stylistic remake of F. W. Murnau’s Nosferatu: A Symphony of Horror, Werner Herzog’s only horror film is as rich with artistry and tragedy as his most grounded, human work.

 

It is 1850 in the beautiful, perfectly-kept town of Wismar. Jonathan Harker (Bruno Ganz) is leaving on a long journey over the Carpathian Mountains to finalize real estate arrangements with a wealthy nobleman. His wife Lucy (Isabelle Adjani) begs him not to go and is troubled by a strong premonition of danger. Despite her warnings, Jonathan arrives four weeks later at a large, gloomy castle. Out of the mist appears a pale, wraith-like figure with deep-sunken eyes who identifies himself as Count Dracula (Klaus Kinski). The events that transpire slowly convince Harker that he is in the presence of a vampire. Even still, he doesn’t realize the magnitude of danger he, his wife and his town are about to experience. Featuring a live organ pre-show at 8:30PM.  Watch Trailer
