Cheekily adapted from Dracula without securing the rights – which saw Bram Stoker’s estate almost succeed in destroying the film – Nosferatu is the seminal moment for horror cinema.
Granted, 91 years on it’s not scary at all – the eponymous vamp in his hipster get-up is just goofy – but it is a triumph of atmosphere.
German master F.W. Murnau’s images are iconic, not least those showcasing Max Shreck’s unforgettably eerie performance.
Released in a terrific new restoration, it really is worth seeing on the big screen.
