It is difficult to watch Nosferatu simply because it is so hard to find a decent copy of the film.

FW Murnau's expressionist horror - and the world's first vampire film - still casts its long shadow over the history of both Germany and cinema

The film shows Murnau's uncanny mixture of expressionism and location shooting at its finest.

A masterpiece of the German silent cinema and easily the most effective version of Dracula on record.

Murnau's classic vampire movie, though not his best film, remains one of the most poetic of all horror films.

Freaky, lovely and very frightening.

Murnau's horror masterwork features a treasure-trove of silent film techniques, unearthly locations and a truly horrid vampire played by Max Schreck.

It's a visual marvel and a inventive landmark in filmmaking history, but it's also a bit too empty.

The plot was stolen (from Stoker) without recompense. Also set lasting standards for horror film and film in general.

A groundbreaking gothic film whose creative camerawork and dark cinematography is still copied in the movies of today.

Decent Films Guide

Almost unique in imagining a vampire who is not darkly attractive, but corpselike and ghastly… the imagery resists allegorization, remaining simply, unsettlingly, itself.

The best, eeriest, most formally clever retelling of one of cinema's favorite stories.

Essential classic Murnau Dracula film. Still the creepiest version.

Austin Chronicle

In the realm of vampire films, this 1922 silent is the original motherlode. No one since has matched vampire Max Schreck's creepy loathsomeness.

A silent landmark that forged a genre through basic, often crude techniques of light, shadow, and special effects.

...an achievement that reminds us that the simple, structured approaches towards the legend of Dracula are the ones that really terrify.
