Episode 143: NOSFERATU THE VAMPYRE (1979‪)‬ Trylove

    • TV & Film

A strikingly stylized reimagining of the classic creature figure, NOSFERATU THE VAMPYRE indicts the driven for the death of passion. Following the broad strokes of F.W. Murnau’s 1922 expressionist horror film, Werner Herzog’s late-70s take on the myth paints the titular non-human as a pathetic figure marked more by his maudlin, passionless philosophies than his bloodlust.

“Give me some of your love,” Dracula commands Isabelle Adjani’s Lucy Harker. “I won't even give that love to God,” she replies, laying clear the philosophical divide at the heart of the movie. It’s a cold, focused, problematic, weird, subtly sexy movie, and we had a blast picking it apart.
