Thirty-five years after it’s initial release, Nosferatu the Vampyre, Werner Herzog’s haunting tone poem of death and loneliness is as potent today as it was in 1979. To celebrate the film’s recent arrival on blu-ray for the first time in both the US and the UK, Fangoria Magazine #334 has featured it on its cover. Steve Head and David Kleiler discuss the film with special guest, Fangoria’s editor, Chris Alexander who counts Nosferatu among his favorite films of all time. The film is available on blu-ray from the BFI in the UK, and from Shout! Factory in the US.
