Halloween time means Halloween movies!

And my favorite film thus far in the season is Nosferatu: Phantom Der Nacht (1979). A classic re-telling of Bram Stoker's "Dracula," a tribute to F.W. Murnau's Nosferatu (1922), and a thoroughly bizarre and artistic take on vampyres, this film is evocative, hauntingly eerie, bizarre, and brilliant! Klaus Kinski portrays the Count in such an amazing way, his wimpy size is totally eclipsed by his brilliantly intense acting ability. Werner Herzog delivers a beautifully visual masterpiece.

Watch the German language version!
