Mark Kermode introduces Nosferatu the Vampyre 2016

2 mins United Kingdom Director. Nick Freand Jones

Werner Herzog's haunting remake of F.W. Murnau's vampire classic Nosferatu comes under Mark Kermode's gaze in his BFI Player+ pick of the week. The critic explores Herzog's admiration for the earlier film, and how this famously unrestrained director had to follow a set of genre conventions - leading to one of his most accomplished works.
