AroView: Max Schreck is unforgettable as the titular vampire in this exquisitely chilling, silent forerunner to Lugosi’s Dracula, made a decade later. A milestone of early film-making from the visionary F.W. Murnau, presented here in HD in a gorgeous colour-tinted print, replete with renowned composer James Bernard’s 1997 score.
“It’s a movie that has managed to retain tone and atmosphere, and its thanks to a mature (but also creative) use of lighting and set more than anything. Its use of shadows both narratively and visually is just fantastic.” ~Sevenhead (AroVideo User review)
