F.W. Murnau's Nosferatu Heading Back to UK Theaters

Posted August 8, 2013 02:50 PM by Webmaster

Eureka EntertainmentBritish distributors Eureka Entertainment have officially announced that they are bringing back to UK theaters F.W. Murnau's classic horror film Nosferatu: A Symphony of Horrors. The film has been expertly restored in Germany by the world-renowned Friedrich-Wilhelm-Murnau-Stiftung (FWMS).

Nosferatu's UK theatrical run will be co-ordinated by Eureka Entertainment and will open in selected cinemas nationwide on Friday October 25, 2013, just in time for Halloween, and will also feature as part of the BFI's GOTHIC: The Dark Heart of Film which runs from 21st October 2013 31st January 2014. This year the BFI will take Britain back to darker times and thrill the nation by uncovering, as never before, the dark heart of film. With over 150 titles and around 1000 screenings GOTHIC features spectacularly terrifying special events to thrill every corner of the UK. GOTHIC will explore film's most popular theme, spawning some of the medium's most iconic, powerful and terrifying scenes and characters whose lasting popularity just refuses to die.

Blu-ray, Blu-ray SteelBook and DVD releases of Nosferatu will follow with a raft of special features to be announced nearer the release date, as part of Eureka Entertainment's award-winning The Masters of Cinema Series.

Sadly, I doubt this edition will make it across the pond (unless FWMS can convince a U.S. partner, i.e. Kino, to put it out anyway) because it was released a year too early for lasting copyright protection here; anything from before 1923 is public domain here in the States. There's an unreleased U.S. BD in the database, but it's from someone I've never heard of before; probably another PD copy, complete with all the names changed to match the works Murnau copied from (i.e., Count Orlok becomes Dracula).

There should be no problem with the restored NOSFERATU making it across the 'pond' (ocean to be exact). The new restoration can be registered and protected in the U.S. just as well as in the U.K. Old PD films can be registered if they are restored, contain new footage or have new original music scores, extras, etc. Don't be sad, be happy.

Night of the Living Dead was released in the US so being in the PD may not be the hold up, more likely Region squabbling. Eureka is big on Region locking so I think that is one of the reasons why they were able to snag it.
