F.W. Murnau’s Nosferatu Officially Announced

Posted October 2, 2013 04:43 PM by Webmaster

Eureka EntertainmentBritish distributors Eureka Entertainment have officially announced and detailed their upcoming Blu-ray release of F. W. Murnau's legendary silent cinema horror classic Nosferatu (1922), expertly restored in Germany by the world-renowned Friedrich-Wilhelm-Murnau-Stiftung (FWMS). The release will be available for purchase on November 18th.

In addition to the standard Blu-ray release, Eureka Entertainment will also have available for purchase a Limited SteelBook Edition.

An iconic film of the German expressionist cinema, and one of the most famous of all silent movies, F. W. Murnau's Nosferatu: A Symphony of Horror continues to haunt — and, indeed, terrify — modern audiences with the unshakable power of its images. By teasing a host of occult atmospherics out of dilapidated set-pieces and innocuous real-world locations alike, Murnau captured on celluloid the deeply-rooted elements of a waking nightmare, and launched the signature "Murnau-style" that would change cinema history forever.

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, in a performance the very backstory of which has spawned its own mythology — who soon after embarks upon a cross-continental voyage to take up residence in a distant new land… and establish his ambiguous dominion. As to whether the count's campaign against the plague-wracked populace erupts from satanic decree, erotic compulsion, or the simple impulse of survival — that remains, perhaps, the greatest mystery of all in this film that's like a blackout…

Remade by Werner Herzog in 1979 (and inspiring films as diverse as Abel Ferrara's King of New York and The Addiction, and E. Elias Merhige's Shadow of the Vampire), F. W. Murnau's surreal 1922 cine-fable remains the original and landmark entry in the entire global tradition of "the horror film".

Special Features:
  • Brand new high-definition restoration by Friedrich-Wilhelm-Murnau-Stiftung
  • Two audio commentaries: one newly recorded by film historian David Kalat; the second by historian R. Dixon Smith and critic Brad Stevens
  • The Language of Shadows, a 53-minute documentary on Murnau's early years and the filming of Nosferatu
  • New video interview with BFI Film Classics Nosferatu author Kevin Jackson
  • Newly translated English subtitles with original German intertitles
  • More surprises to be revealed closer to release date!
  • PLUS: a 56-page booklet featuring writings and rare imagery

What are the odds that this release is region free?

@Metallix87 Somewhere between "nonexistent" and "haha you asked in the first place".

Not two cuts, but just the same versions, just German intertitles and English intertitles.

I remember the DVD being a bit shabby and scratchy still. Hopefully this has been minimised in the new restoration. Either way, this release should look amazing!

I will be looking forward to the comparison with the Kino edition. Since I already have the MoC DVD, I'm thinking it might be a good idea to have the Kino BD with the added option of English inter-titles, but lessee. Ain't this a great time to be a movie buff?

I have the MoC steelbook BD of Metropolis and I think just about everything was ported over the the Kino edition. I'm guessing the same will be true for Nosferatu. The art work on the UK editions and steelbooks are so much better, though. Even if its not region free, I sometimes pick up the steelbooks just for that (and their collectability)

So seeing that this Eureka version is Region B locked, does this mean Kino's two-cut edition coming out a week prior is solely for the US market?

Surely they will remove those scratches on the remaster?
