Eureka! Entertainment announced the home video release of an eagerly awaited new restoration of F. W. Murnau’s legendary silent cinema horror classic NOSFERATU: A SYMPHONY OF HORROR (1922), expertly restored in Germany by the world-renowned Friedrich-Wilhelm-Murnau-Stiftung.
From Bloody Disgusting:
The earliest adaptation of Bram Stoker’s “Dracula” has become one of the most iconic and of all horror films – and silent films – in the history of cinema, ranked #21 in Empire magazine’s 2010 poll of the 100 greatest films in world cinema and included in the recent Critic’s Poll by Sight & Sound magazine as one of the 250 greatest films ever made. With an incomparable lead performance as the vampire by Max Schreck — whom some believe to have been an actual vampire, it is the film behind E. Elias Merhige’s John Malkovich-starring Shadow of the Vampire and the inspiration behind Werner Herzog’s Klaus Kinski-starring 1979 feature adaptation, released theatrically by the BFI in the UK on November 1, 2013.
Following a UK & Eire theatrical run where it will open in cinemas nationwide from Friday October 25, 2013, Blu-ray, Dual Format (Blu-ray + DVD) SteelBook and DVD editions featuring a raft of special features to be announced nearer the release date, will be released as part of Eureka! Entertainment’s award-winning The Masters of Cinema Series on November 18, 2013.
