It still retains its mystique, does anyone remember the time C4 showed it at xmas?? What a hoot. Haven't watched Herzog's version in years, may dig it out sharpish methinks....

it's also really good. Kinski is unbelievably creepy!

I remember a few years ago (was in my late teens) I taped a bunch of horror films from channel 4 (I must've been a horror night). I remember Takashi Miike's Audition, Peeping Tom (which I think is why I taped the night, the others were a bonus I tapped by mistake) Blaire Witch Project and the first silent I ever saw... The Phantom of the opera.

I know this has nothing to do with nosferatu, but it probably started my interest in silents and I probably would never have thought of watching Nosferatu if it hadn't been for Phantom of the Opera (which really surprised me, because i never knew this film exsisted. I thought POTO the musical was the original )

Thanks for that, I've seen this in HMV loads of times but wasn't sure if there was a better version available these days

From my Classic Horror thread...

If you can find it, there is an Anchor Bay double disc set, which contains both the German and English language versions of the film

The German one has a run-time of 102:25, while the English one clocks in at 106:48

I think it has been deleted now, but I got a copy from a charity shop a few weeks ago

Great film, if you buy a copy go with the masters of horror release, its the best available and comes with a detailed book.

I think Herzog's Nosferatu ranks right up there with Rollin's Lips of Blood in terms of sheer beauty of imagery.

Of course the origianl version had the benefit of Grau's incredible artistry, but Herzog had Kinski. So in that respect, I think the two versions qualify as masterpieces.

Btw, have you seen Shadow of the Vampire?
