Nosferatu the Vampyre

 (1979)

Nosferatu the Vampyre Blu-ray offers decent video and great audio in this overall recommended Blu-ray release

It is 1850 in the beautiful, perfectly-kept town of Wismar. Jonathan Harker is about to leave on a long journey over the Carpathian Mountains to finalize real estate arrangements with a wealthy nobleman. His wife, Lucy, begs him not to go and is troubled by a strong premonition of danger. Despite her warnings, Jonathan arrives four weeks later at a large, gloomy castle. Out of the mist appears a pale, wraith-like figure with a shaven head and deep-sunken eyes who identifies himself as Count Dracula. The events that transpire slowly convince Harker that he is in the presence of a vampyre. What he doesn't know is the magnitude of danger he, his wife and his town are about to experience.

For more about Nosferatu the Vampyre and the Nosferatu the Vampyre Blu-ray release, see Nosferatu the Vampyre Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

Nosferatu the Vampyre Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Nosferatu is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Scream Factory (an imprint of Shout! Factory) with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.85:1. It's uncertain whether this is the same transfer used for the German Blu-ray release that came out about a year and a half ago, but based on my colleague Dr. Svet Atanasov's review of that edition, if this isn't sourced from the same master, it certainly shows some of the same anomalies. While the image here is mostly very stable, with good, natural looking colors (with Herzog's mostly tamped down palette), there's been some obvious high frequency noise reduction here that has had an odd and somewhat differing effect on the film's grain structure. What struck me personally as the most unusual thing here is how variable the denoising is. Watch, for example, early in the film when Harker and Lucy are saying goodbye. The interior shot is virtually grain free, with the clean, textureless look of video. When the film cuts to the outside of the Harker home, things improve somewhat, with a kind of splotchy but at least evident recreation of a grain field. Then, however, the film cuts to a scene of a canal, and it almost looks like we're looking at 16mm, with quite heavy grain and a really soft, blurry image. There is something akin to grain evident especially in the brighter outdoor scenes, but if you use your pause button to isolate individual moments, you'll see that it tends to appear only in clumps, with surrounding areas of a completely scrubbed surface. Also cropping up with some fair regularity (again most noticeable in scenes with decent lighting like the ones at the beach are noticeable compression artifacts. As Svet noted in his review of the German edition, the fact that the film is so dimly lit so much of the time may make this less of an issue than it might otherwise be. On the plus side, contrast is generally excellent and blacks are solidly deep, giving the film's shrouded ambience a bit of moody pop.

Note: Screenshots 1-10 are from the English version, and screenshots 11-19 are from the German version.


Nosferatu the Vampyre Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Both the German and English language versions of the film are presented on this Blu-ray disc, with the German version being granted both a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 and DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 mix, with the English version being offered only in DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0. There are some slightly phasing issues on the English track that are especially noticeable in moments like Lucy's terrified scream that opens the film, but generally dialogue, score and effects come through quite cleanly and clearly. No such issues afflict either German track, but I personally preferred the DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 mix, for to my ears it offered a much more intimate accounting of the dialogue. While the 5.1 mix does open up some of the effects and especially the moody score, dialogue seems slightly anemic when compared to the 2.0 iteration. Fidelity on both of these tracks is generally excellent, though it seems like amplitude has been just subtly boosted on the 2.0 mix.
