Nosferatu (1922) Review:

Nosferatu is amongst the first horror film ever made and probably the first movie to ever feature the vampire story (even if there is debate about an eventual precedent vampire movie), so needless to say that it is a classic.

It is a silent movie, but the constant organ music makes sure that a very creepy atmosphere surrounds its viewer. The movie is filled with worrying characters (the driver, the attorney, etc) and sinister places such as Nosferatu castle. Nosferatu himself is a very troubling character, with his long humanoid face and long claws.

However, the movie is old and sometimes is it hard to remains serious while watching it, especially when the drums are not really appropriate and makes the scene looks like a fun circus show.

The story is good and very interesting to see after having seen dozens of other vampire movies (Dracula, Van Helsing, etc) for it really makes you realize that everything comes from this original movie! I was disappointed by the ending but still, this great movie has got a very particular atmosphere that should keep you interested. Maybe not as good as “The Cabinet of Doctor Caligari”, but still a great old classic that every horror fans should once watch!
