Nosferatu: Phantom Der Nacht
This German-language 1979 retelling of Bram Stoker's Dracula follows the bloodthirsty, undead count (menacingly played by Klaus Kinski) as he takes over the German village of Virna and then tries to spread his bloodsucking ways throughout the world. All that stands in his path is the lovely, selfless Lucy Harker (Isabelle Adjani). Iconoclastic German director Werner Herzog blends dreamlike imagery and a languid pace to give the film an ethereal milieu.
