Nosferatu the Vampyre (1979)

Director: Werner Herzog. Cast: Klaus Kinski, Isabelle Adjani, Bruno Ganz. 107 min. Rated PG. West Germany/France. Horror.

Who would have thought Master Herzog could make the creepiest Dracula movie ever? Just imagine the famous tale devoid of all Hollywood glamor; what you get is a film with evil seeping through and pouring out. Herzog provides moments to just sit, listen to the eerie soundtrack, and meditate on the impending doom. I can comfortably say I've never seen a Count Dracula like Klaus Kinski's to be so ... intimate. Avoiding his hypnotic gaze looking straight into the camera, is a nearly impossible feat. This is at a truly different level than any vampire movie you've ever experienced.
