Nosferatu, the Vampyre

 "Death is not the worst. There are things more horrible than death."

"Death is not the worst. There are things more horrible than death."

Written and directed by Werner Herzog. 1979.

Herzog's interpretation of the original German film is eerie, atmospheric, and somehow apocalyptic -- as a good vampire narrative should be. Kinski's vampyre is forbidden to participate in his own apocalypse, here confined to a German village, a household. A woman's heart.
