Details

Jonathan Harker (Bruno Ganz, Downfall) lives with his young wife Lucy (Isabelle Adjani, Possession) in the idyllic town of Wismar, where he works as an estate agent. In spite of grim omens, Harker ventures deep into the Carpathian Mountains to close a property deal with Count Dracula (Klaus Kinski, Aquirre, Wrath of God), a sickly, wraith-like creature with sunken eyes and pallid skin. While dining that night at the Count’s ghostly castle, Harker cuts his finger, provoking a disturbing reaction in his host. Werner Herzog’s masterful contribution to the vampire canon is both a discerning tribute to F W Murnau’s 1922 silent classic, and a singularly atmospheric and thoughtful horror film in its own right.
