Directed by Waldemar Ronger

A sound version of F.W. Murnau's Nosferatu: Eine Symphonie des Grauens (1922), almost certainly made without Murnau's knowledge. The characters are given new names with Count Orlok becoming Furst Wollkoff, and the character of a young priest is added played by Hans Behal in a 'Mass for the Dead' sequence that was later cut due to interference from censors who objected to the religious implications. Lotte Eisner in her biography on Murnau states that this artistic adaptation must have come from an original negative of NOSFERATU and some unused footage from Prana Film. This version may also be listed with F.W. Murnau as the director

From the Library

As the 20th century evolved, rational man turned to science to explain mythology that had pervaded for thousands of years. How could a man be mistaken for a vampire? How could someone appear to have been the victim of a vampire attack? Science, in time, came back with answers that may surprise you.Anemia
A million fancies strike you when you hear the name: Nosferatu!N O S F E R A T Udoes not die!What do you expect of the first showing of this great work?Aren't you afraid? - Men must die. But legend has it that a vampire, Nosferatu, 'der Untote' (the Undead), lives on men's blood! You want to see a symphony of horror? You may expect more. Be careful. Nosferatu is not just fun, not something to be taken lightly. Once more: beware.- Publicity for Nosferatu in the German magazine Buhne und Film, 1922
