Nosferatu: Phantom Der Nacht (1979)
Horror Movies & Sci-Fi Movies Database
Jonathan Harker is sent away to Count Dracula's castle to sell him a house in Virna, where he lives. But Count Dracula is a vampire, an undead ghoule living of men's blood. Inspired by a photograph of Lucy Harker, Jonathan's wife, Dracula moves to Virna, bringing with him death and plague... An unusually contemplative version of Dracula, in which the vampire bears the cross of not being able to get old and die.

- Warden: The patient that came in yesterday is having a fit. Van Helsing: Which one? Warden: The one that bit the cow.
Count Dracula: [Hearing howling] Listen... [More howling] Count Dracula: Listen. The children of the night make their music.
Count Dracula: Death is not the worst. There are things more horrible than death.
Count Dracula: [subtitled version] Time is an abyss...
Count Dracula: [subtitled version] Time is an abyss... profound as a thousand nights... Centuries come and go... To be unable to grow old is terrible... Death is not the worst... Can you imagine enduring centuries, experiencing each day the same futilities...
- The scene where Nosferatu arrives in the city required thousands of grey rats. Real grey rats were unavailable and therefore white ones were painted grey and used instead.
Cameo: [Beverly Walker]
Director Cameo: [Werner Herzog] the person who sticks his foot into the coffin and gets his toe bitten by a rat.
As this movie was made long after the copyright to Bram Stoker's Dracula had expired, Herzog decided to restore the original names of the characters, while still following the movie blueprint laid out by F.W. Murnau's Nosferatu, eine Symphonie des Grauens (1922).
Werner Herzog cast Roland Topor as Renfield after seeing him in a French TV show. He had been greatly impressed with the crazy, utterly desperate laugh with which Topor had concluded his every statement on that show. Reprising the laugh in Nosferatu, it is much more pronounced in the English version of the film than the German.
