A week or so ago we told you that the 1922 F.W. Murnau classic Nosferatu: A Symphony of Horror was seeing a Blu-ray release in the UK. Immediately afterwards we began to wonder… okay well, where’s our North American release. Well, it’s right here!
A SYMPHONY OF HORROR is resurrected in an HD edition mastered from the acclaimed 35mm restoration by the Friedrich-Wilhelm-Murnau-Stiftung. Backed by an orchestral performance of Hans Erdmann’s 1922 score, this Kino Classics edition from Kino Lorber offers unprecedented visual clarity and historical faithfulness to the original release version.
An unauthorized adaptation of Bram Stoker’s Dracula, NOSFERATU remains to many viewers the most unsettling vampire film ever made, and its bald, spidery vampire, personified by the diabolical Max Schreck, continues to spawn imitations in the realm of contemporary cinema.
Look for it stores on November 12th. No word on any special features yet.
