Our take

Revisiting F.W. Murnau’s classic, Werner Herzog made a unique and elemental take on the Dracula story. This haunting vision of life, death, and superstition is aglow with deep color, and finds pity for Kinski’s deathless wraith. With the brilliant Isabelle Adjani: the carnal queen of Euro-horror.
