Eine Symphonie des Grauens. A Symphony of Horror
Certificate: PG

Release Date:
Content Type: Movie

An iconic film of the German expressionist cinema, and one of the most famous of all silent movies, F. W. Murnau's 'Nosferatu. A Symphony of Horror' continues to haunt — and, indeed, terrify — modern audiences with the unshakable power of its images. By teasing a host of occult atmospherics out of dilapidated set-pieces and innocuous real-world locations alike, Murnau captured on celluloid the deeply-rooted elements of a waking nightmare, and launched the signature "Murnau-style" that would change cinema history forever.

In this first-ever screen adaptation of Bram Stoker's 'Dracula', a simple real-estate transaction leads an intrepid businessman deep into the superstitious heart of Transylvania. There he encounters the otherworldly Count Orlok — portrayed by the legendary Max Schreck — who soon after embarks upon a cross-continental voyage to take up residence in a distant new land...

F. W. Murnau's surreal 1922 cine-fable remains the original and landmark entry in the entire global tradition of "the horror film". The 'Masters of Cinema' Series is proud to present, at long last, 'Nosferatu. A Symphony of Horror' in its definitive restoration, complete with original intertitles and accompanied by the score that played with the film at the time of its initial release.
