Top Customer Reviews
As far as the other members of the production and distribution teams go, for their ignorance, dubious taste and contempt for the viewer's intelligence, they deserve to be buried in excrement in the lowest circle of hell. Some examples:
1. For no good reason, the setting is relocated to London (which is obviously contradicted by the scenery [canals] and iconic architecture of Wismar and Lubeck).
2. The re-cut of Nosferatu places scenes in nonsensical order. The rat-laden ship arrives bringing plague before Nosferatu himself arrives on the same ship, diluting the dramatic impact of the Count's arrival.
3. Scenes from different movies are amateurishly grafted into the film. Extremely annoying is a bat-logo that bursts in among title cards - serving no purpose whatsoever, except that maybe someone in the editing room thought it was "cool."
4. Many of the title cards are changed and rendered in weak contemporary paraphrases that are jarringly anachronistic (e.g., Hutter saying "okay"). Many new and unnecessary titles are added, breaking up the dramatic flow of the film. Worst of all, the new intertitles contain wisecracks about "Transylvanian hospitality," etc., that completely undermine the horror aspects of the film.
5. The new musical score is the worst I have ever heard in any silent film. It is rank amateur. It is more suited to a slaptstick cartoon, nothing but cliches. The cheap synthesizer work is abominable; the piano bits are putrid, other bits of stock spook music are used idiotically. No one can adequately describe how absolutely horrid this soundtrack is. It sets an all-time standard for rotten, annoying and puerile.
6. Worst of all, and what makes watching this DVD with sound completely unbearable, is the addition of "voice effects" -- cackles, heh-heh-heh's, mumbling, snoring, snickers, giggles, etc. -- which sound like noises made by drunks who think they're being funny. The result completely undermines any horror sensibility and is unbearable.
These are but a few of the nearly infinite faults of this piece of exploitive trash. The topper is the unfunny introduction by self-aggrandizing idiot Lloyd Kaufman of Troma. You understand immediately that this release was made for drunks and imbeciles, probably by money-grubbing drunks and imbeciles.
And, by the way, it's supposed to come with 2 pairs of 3D glasses. Mine didn't come with any, of course.
If you care anything at all about F.W. Murnau, this miserable obscenity will make you feel dirty and violated for having purchased it. Do yourself a favor - get the Kino DVD Nosferatu (The Ultimate Two-Disc Edition) and experience the raw power of great cinema that is the real Nosferatu.
The print here is superb, the 3-D conversion excellent, the soundtrack well done. I was not entirely happy with the re-writing of the dialogue titles, but they weren't bad.
