Nosferatu: Two-Disc Deluxe Remastered Edition Blu-ray

Posted August 29, 2013 05:08 PM by Webmaster

Kino InternationalKino Classics will release on Blu-ray F.W. Murnau's classic horror film Nosferatu: A Symphony of Horrors. The two-disc Deluxe Remastered Blu-ray Edition will be available for purchase online and in stores across the United States on November 12th.

An unauthorized adaptation of Bram Stoker's Dracula, Nosferatu is the quintessential silent vampire film, crafted by legendary German director F. W. Murnau (Sunrise, Faust, The Last Laugh). Rather than depicting Dracula as a shape-shifting monster or debonair gentleman, Murnau's Graf Orlok (as portrayed by Max Schreck) is a nightmarish, spidery creature of bulbous head and taloned claws -- perhaps the most genuinely disturbing incarnation of vampirism yet envisioned. Nosferatu was an atypical expressionist film in that much of it was shot on location. While directors such as Lang and Lubitsch built vast forests and entire towns within the studio, Nosferatu's landscapes, villages and castle were actual locations in the Carpathian Mountains. Murnau was thus able to infuse the story with the subtle tones of nature: both pure and fresh as well as twisted and sinister.

Special Features:
  • Two versions of the film
  • Original German Intertitles (with optional English subtitles)
  • English Intertitles
  • Hans Erdmann's original 1922 score in 5.1 Surround or 2.0 Stereo
  • The Language of Shadows - a 52 minute documentary chronicling the early career of F.W. Murnau
  • A collection of clips and highlights from other F.W. Murnau films
  • Photo Gallery

@Ace of Sevens: It is PD in the U.S. (as are all works published before 1923), but is still copyrighted by FWMS (F.W. Murnau Stiftung, or Foundation) in Germany; Kino is releasing FWMS' new restoration here. Though PD copies of Nosferatu could have been issued here on BD (they definitely have been on DVD), this will almost certainly be superior to any of them.

@Don Corleone: You're confusing this with the MoC release in the UK, which does include a Steelbook. The same thing happened with Metropolis, also involving FWMS; MoC issued a Steelbook in the UK, but Kino didn't issue one here. (Since Metropolis was a foreign work published after 1923, FWMS had its U.S. copyright restored; not an option with Nosferatu.)

Excellent, I've been waiting to add this film to my blu-ray collection for quite some time. I'll be picking up the Steelbook edition and possibly this version as well, if all the special features aren't included in the Eureka/Masters of Cinema edition.

PS - Not complaining or anything, but a release date scheduled just before Halloween would have been better.

While I'm very happy that I can finally own Nosferatu on blu-ray, I feel that they're really dropping the ball by not releasing this before Halloween. I was looking forward to this being the star of my annual horror movie marathon.

FINALLY! Been waiting for this for years.

Does it really matter if it does or doesn't come out for Halloween? At least it's actually coming out at last.

I'm glad this is coming out, hope to pick it up...I'm curious as to why they didn't include an audio commentary on this...I know there has been some on previous releases.

@ THGhost

Don't get me wrong, I started out by saying how happy I am that I'll finally be able to own "Nosferatu" on blu-ray. It's just that I happen to enjoy showing friends and family members horror films (classic/contemporary/foreign/domestic) on the week leading to (and, of course, on) Halloween night. Of course, what really matters is that this 'must-own' is coming out at last. I'm just saying that I, for one, would have considered it a real treat to be able to show friends and family members one of the all-time classic gems of the horror genre on Halloween night.

Great news! Only complaint(s): Different artwork from the MoC release and no Steelbook option. One of these days I've gotta get a region-free player.

Is it really deluxe, if it's lacking most of the features from the MoC Blu-Ray? I'm buying that one, because the David Kalat commentary is just too intriguing.

A Region free blu-ray is essential when you love cinema. I couldn't enjoy Criterion titles if I didn't. Don't wait. You will not be disappointed !!

One of the worst covers for an iconic masterpiece. It's good kino exists but Christ they're lazy and tend to put out boring looking packages.

Day...well, being a vampire I'll have plenty of time to get this one, as long as it doesn't sell out.

Well Don Corleone, I guess that's what you get for thinking around here... You should have hated the cover instead of lamenting that it's not a steelbook. I'm still trying to figure out the thought rules here myself, so don't feel bad. Just kidding, i don't care actually.

It's not 2 different cuts. One is the German intertitle version, the other is the English. I'm disappointed in Kino again. We just get a rehash of what we already have. MoC gets a steelbook, pamphlet, and two commentaries. I'm definitley importing the steelbook.

This is good news but I would've much preferred to see a North American release of the 1979 Nosferatu film from Werner Herzog. THAT I'd pay for as it is probably the best Dracula film ever made! the Germans got it earlier this year, I hope it will arrive here sooner than later...

@ Red Dragon

Screw Halloween. It's just an excuse to sell sweets to children and for girls to dress up like sluts. It's lost all its meaning nowadays. Horror films should be watched at any time, especially one as wonderful as Nosferatu.
