    Orlok is a genuinely creepy-looking villain and every scene with him in is a frightening delight, especially as his shadow menacingly climbs the stairs at the end. Other than that, it's crushingly dull. 8 years 4 months ago

    The film itself is surprisingly sophisticated from that I was expecting, but the "remastered" music is downright painful. I wish I could find a copy with the original music instead of this ridiculous synth xylophone crap. It's like listening to a PBS documentary about a crayon factory. 8 years ago

    Just saw this for the first time via Netflix streaming. The film itself is astounding; very dynamic, and Orlock is one of the most genuinely menacing screen villains I've ever seen.

    One caveat: the variety of recently recorded scores makes it quite a gamble for viewing purposes. The version we streamed (touted as "The Original Version," no less) featured some New Age sounding nonsense that was clearly recorded well after the film was produced and was so bad it detracted from our viewing experience.
