Murnau’s Nosferatu (1922) Vs. Herzog’s Nosferatu (1979)
I know! I know! I drone on about how I generally avoid remakes. I do say “generally” because there are always exceptions to the rule; Cronenberg’s The Fly, Carpenter’s The Thing, and Kaufman’s Invasion of the Body Snatchers. While I do favour the 1922 version a touch more; Werner Herzog’s 1979 remake of Nosferatu is absolutely stunning and definitely deserves to be noted as one of the best of the remakes.
