Herzog brashly took up the mantle of German Expressionism when revisiting the unhallowed soil of Murnau’s silent masterpiece, with old foe and collaborator Klaus Kinski filling Max Schreck’s shoes (and talons) as the pestilent Transylvanian Count; Isabelle Adjani as the owner of the pale, slender neck that he so dearly desires to sink his fangs into; and Bruno Ganz as her beloved Jonathan, desperate to discover why his bride is wasting away. Working for the first time with international financing, Herzog was able to unleash horror on a truly epic scale, with Mexican mummies, oceans of rats, and other abominations making up individual movements in his symphony of terror.
