Nosferatu (Masters of Cinema) review

Cinephile label sinks its fangs into some hi-def horror with this silent genre classic

F.W. Murnau's legendary silent adaptation of Bram Stoker's Dracula may have turned 91 this year, but for us it remains the definitive screen version of the story [although Dracula: Dead and Loving It comes a close second – Ed]. And while this hi-def platter's restored 1.33:1 1080p transfer still suffers from scratches and splices, it is far superior to any previous release, with greatly improved clarity and stability. The score is provided in both LPCM 2.0 and DTS-HD MA 5.1 incarnations – both sound simply gorgeous. A pair of commentaries and a 52-minute documentary are among the Blu-ray's excellent bonus features.
