Herzog’s oddball version of Nosferatu/Dracula. Renfield is Harker’s boss (was he always?). Some good scenery in the journey to Transylvania. Nobody in Dracula’s castle except the man himself. After the deadly boat ride, the rats and plague take over the city, ending with a wonderful fancy breakfast in the middle of the square. Mina Harker tricks the Count into staying in her room past dawn, then an otherwise useless Dr. Van Helsing finally uses the stake (offscreen) then is arrested, after which Jonathan Harker, not destroyed or freed from his curse by the death of the count, escapes presumably back to the castle. The last five minutes or so are amazingly great.
We watched the German version… guess I don’t have the English version anymore. Katy didn’t like it.
