Nosferatu

 (1922)

Nosferatu Blu-ray delivers great video and reference-quality audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

In this first-ever screen adaptation of Bram Stoker's Dracula, a simple real-estate transaction leads an intrepid businessman deep into the superstitious heart of Transylvania. There he encounters the otherworldly Count Orlok — portrayed by the legendary Max Schreck — who soon after embarks upon a cross-continental voyage to take up residence in a distant new land...

Nosferatu Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

The film opens with a description of the restoration work that was entailed:

"Nosferatu was restored by Luciano Berriatúa on behalf of Friedrich-Wilhelm-Murnau-Stiftung, Weisbaden in 2005/06. A tinted nitrate print with French intertitles from 1922 from the Cinémathèque Française, Paris, was used as a basis for the restoration.

Missing shots were completed by a safety print from 1939 from Bundesarchiv-Filmarchiv, Berlin/Koblenz, drawn from a Czech export print from the 1920s. Other shots were taken from a nitrate print of the 1930 version, distributed under the title Die Zwölfte Stunde (The Twelfth Hour), preserved at the Cinémathèque Française, Paris.

Most of the original intertitles and inserts are preserved in a safety print from 1962 from Bundesarchiv-Filmarchiv, Berlin/Koblenz, originating in a print from 1922. Missing intertitles and inserts were redesigned on the basis of the original typography by trickWilk, Berlin. They are marked with F.W.M.S.

The lab work was carried out by L'Immagine Ritrovata, Bologna."

This is quite simply the best Nosferatu has ever looked on home video. As a film in the public domain, it's seen numerous releases by less-than- reputable distributors using thrice-duped, badly tinted, and poorly mastered prints. Kino-Lorber has aimed for a more definitive presentation, using an original print and attempting to stay true to the film's intended appearance. While not as immediately jaw-dropping as the recent Friedrich-Wilhelm- Murnau-Stiftung restoration of Metropolis—which was given the frame-by-frame clean-up treatment—Nosferatu is gorgeous in this new 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer. Specks and scratches still remain throughout, but the print's grain structure is preserved, with no signs of adverse noise reduction or edge enhancement. Detail is massively improved from previous editions—with finer textures and sharper lines all around—and both the contrast and color tinting are balanced perfectly. This edition is by far the best way to appreciate Nosferatu's stunning visuals.

Note: The first disc of the two-disc set features reconstructed English intertitles—using a great Art Deco typeface—while the second disc includes German intertitles, some original and others reconstructed.

Update (11/20/13): At first glance, it appeared to me as though both transfers were identical, but on closer examination—and thanks to the sharp eyes of some of the readers in our forums—it's obvious that the German edition on the second disc is superior. It's visibly sharper throughout, and when compared back to back, the English version is slightly but noticeably cropped. Purists will want to stick with the German version, which is comparable in quality to Masters of Cinema's U.K. release.


Nosferatu Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

Kino has supplied the film with a partially speculative rerecording of Hans Erdmann's original score, some of which is lost. The music is as eerie as the imagery, complementing the onscreen horrors with deep cellos, clanging cymbals, and piercing brass. Presented in either the default lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track or an uncompressed Linear PCM 2.0 stereo mix-down, the arrangements sound fantastic—rich and clear and dynamically expansive. We couldn't ask for better.
