Nosferatu the Vampyre

Body

Herzog's remake of what he considers to be the most visionary and important of all German films, FW Murnau's Nosferatu. Held together by the sheer power of Klaus Kinski's performance as the vampire, Herzog's Nosferatu the Vampyre recreates several scenes (practically shot-for-shot) from the Murnau classic while slightly altering some of the original's thematic structures. In Murnau's film, the vampire is pure evil invading a small German community (Herzog feels that the 1922 film prefigured the rise of Nazism in Germany). Herzog's vampire is much more sympathetic - an outcast - as he moves from Transylvania to Wismar, spreading the Black Plague across the land.
