Description

Nosferatu the Vampyre is part of Cult Films at Mad Arts, a weekly showcase of experimental movies that are too raw, weird, experimental, or transgressive for a general audience, but have a celebrated, or infamous reputation among film enthusiasts. This curated selection showcases films that defined genres and pioneered new techniques in filmmaking. These films straddle the line between art and film, in the sense that they were made to satisfy something other than ticket sales.

All Cult Films at Mad Arts are recommended for an 18 + audience. Each movie runs on a 2-week cycle with 10 showings. 

Nosferatu the Vampyre

Werner Herzog, West Germany, 1979, Shout! Factory, Arthouse

Werner Herzog’s only horror film is as rich with artistry and tragedy as his most grounded, human work. It is 1850 in the beautiful, perfectly-kept town of Wismar. Jonathan Harker (Bruno Ganz, Downfall; Wings of Desire) is leaving on a long journey over the Carpathian Mountains to finalize real estate arrangements with a wealthy nobleman. His wife Lucy (Possession’s Isabelle Adjani) begs him not to go and is troubled by a strong premonition of danger. Despite her warnings, Jonathan arrives four weeks later at a large, gloomy castle. Out of the mist appears a pale, wraith-like figure with deep-sunken eyes who identifies himself as Count Dracula (Klaus Kinski). The events that transpire slowly convince Harker that he is in the presence of a vampire. Even still, he doesn’t realize the magnitude of danger he, his wife, and his town are about to experience.

“It is about the mood and style of vampirism, about the terrible seductive pity of it all.” — Roger Ebert, American Film Critic
