Nosferatu : eine Symphonie des Grauens by F. W Murnau( visu )
29 editions published between 1921 and 2012 in 7 languages and held by 65 libraries worldwide
An estate agent's clerk (von Wangenheim) leaves his bride (Schroeder) in the city of Bremen to conduct business in the distant Carpathian mountains, with an eccentric client named Graf Orlok (Schreck). However, the closer he gets to his destination, the more terrified become the people he meets. What he finds at Orlok's sinister castle is more horrifying than he could possibly have imagined ... This was the very first film to be based on Bram Stoker's now infamous novel "Dracula". Names and locations were changed but Stoker's estate, who had not given permission for the novel to be filmed, recognised the obvious and alarming similarities and sued the producers. An English judge ordered all copies of the film to be destroyed and the original negative burned. Fortunately for us, prints survived in Germany

Frankenstein Nosferatu ( visu )
1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 28 libraries worldwide
This edition is dedicated to the creators, producers and actors of the Frankenstein-monster genre. The Frankenstein-monster was more to be pitied than centured ; while the vampire-monster (Nosferatur) was an evil and blood-thirsty killer, an un-dead creature. This was cinema's first Frankenstein film and Nosferatu was cinema's first vampire film. These two films were the genesis of Monster and Horror films that followed
Nosferatu : symphony of horror ( visu )
1 edition published in 2013 in No Linguistic Content and held by 28 libraries worldwide
The quintessential silent vampire film, crafted by legendary German director F. W. Murnau. Rather than depicting Dracula as a shape-shifting monster or debonair gentleman, Murnau's Graf Orlok is a nightmarish, spidery creature of bulbous head and taloned claws, perhaps the most genuinely disturbing incarnation of vampirism yet envisioned
