Part of BAMcinématek 2013 series Adjani
Directed by Werner Herzog | 1979

With Klaus Kinski, Isabelle Adjani, Bruno Ganz, Roland Topor, Walter Ladengast

Ignoring decades of cinematic vampire mythology ingrained by directors Tod Browning and Terence Fisher, Herzog harks back to the apex of German cinema and culture before the dark years of the Nazi regime, with this moody homage to F.W. Murnau's silent masterpiece Nosferatu. Seemingly born to play Count Dracula, Kinski crafts a lived-in performance of a brooding and world-weary figure cursed with the loneliness of eternal life and drawn to the ethereal beauty of Lucy (Adjani). With an army of 11,000 plague-ridden rats and slow-motion shots of vampire bats in flight, Herzog’s masterpiece is one of the most unforgettable entries in the genre.
