|Herzog's remake of F.W. Murnau's original 1922 vampire classic.
Expressionistic performances, a dense period atmosphere, and a genuine mood of dread and bleakness all add up to a thoroughly unique viewing experience.
Scenes of Harker's first night in the castle, Dracula's arrival in Wismar, and his first visit to Lucy are a real treat.
Kinski's colorful (or is it colorless?) performance is a watchable and subjective experiment all of the actor's own making.
Perhaps not for all tastes; more brooding rather than frightening, and deliberate, dream-like pacing will surely repel some...others will be amazed.
