In one week, the "Ultimate DVD Edition" of the 1922 F.W. Murnau masterpiece Nosferatu: A Symphony of Horror will be released. A startling example of film restoration, the movie has been brought as close to its original grandeur as is humanly possible, including the original color tinting and a re-recording of the original score.
The edition also boasts:
- The original German intertitles, plus the option for either newly translated English intertitles or subtitles.
- "The Language of Shadows", a making-of documentary.
- A short documentary on the restoration, which can be watched in its entirety here.
- Lengthy excerpts from other Murnau films.
Basically, this thing is a treasure trove for any serious horror fan, so much so that I may even dust off the ol' wallet to spring for it, despite already owning an earlier edition. You can pre-order it here.
