Nosferatu: Trailer Talk

While there have been constant remakes being released and announced, the one that has worried me the most is ‘Nosferatu’. Despite the film having a remake in the 80’s, the original film is a classic and a masterpiece in horror. So, a modern remake has me nervous.

‘Nosferatu’ tells the story of a young woman who is haunted by the terrifying vampire that causes untold horror in its wake.



However, the trailer has lowered my worries. Considering how many classic films get remade, I was worried this one would either be without the charm or gothic horror of the original. But the visuals do a fantastic job at capturing that old gothic look that some classics held. Plus, the imagery displayed is creepy, including a shot of the vampire’s clawed hand as a shadow, towering over the town as if grasping for it.

It’s simple yet fantastically demonstrates the fear that the vampire holds over the town. The trailer does a great job at not showing the vampire’s face either, instead opting for shadows and a cloaked figure. It knows the face doesn’t need to be revealed straight away; the imagery alone is threatening enough.

The cast is also fantastic: Willem DaFoe (Shadow of the Vampire, Poor Things), Nicholas Hoult (Renfield, The Menu), Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Kick Ass, The Fall Guy) and Bill Skarsgård (IT, Barbarian) have all been cast, with Skarsgård playing the titular vampire. It does come as a surprise that DaFoe wasn’t cast as the vampire, given that he played the original Nosferatu actor in the mockumentary ‘Shadow of the Vampire’, which posits the idea that the actor was actually a vampire. But, Skarsgård will surely fit perfectly into the role, given his previous roles. 

While I didn’t like the idea of a modern ‘Nosferatu’ remake, the trailer’s done a great job at putting those uncertainties to rest. The film has a fantastic cast, and it looks like it’s perfectly captured the older gothic atmosphere that the original film carried.
