Trouble Finding Nosferatu Blu-ray
« on: June 27, 2022, 12:03:35 AM »
This is weird. I read about the 100th anniversary Nosferatu Blu-ray by Kino and it should be on sale already. I read about it here:


https://www.mediaplaynews.com/classc-horror-film-nosferatu-blu-ray-kino-lorber-100th-anniversary/


However, I can't seem to find it for sale! The only Nosferatu Blu-ray I'm finding anywhere is this one, from 2013:


https://www.amazon.com/Nosferatu-Classics-2-Disc-Remastered-Blu-ray/dp/B00EO2I6RO/ref=sr_1_1?crid=I1WMJALGUCYU&keywords=nosferatu+blu+ray&qid=1656305598&s=movies-tv&sprefix=nosferatu%2Cmovies-tv%2C83&sr=1-1


Was it cancelled or something? Is it for sale anywhere?

I don't think there is any new edition. Kino is just promoting their 2013 BR for the 100th anni.

Ah, I see! So they were simply promoting the 2013 version for the 100th anniversary? No wonder I can't find a 2022 release! ON another article I read, it said they were releasing the movie in theaters in the UK and somewhere else overseas for the 100th anniversary. Damn, I wish they were releasing it in the USA on the big screen!

There does seem to be a 100th Anniversary Blu-Ray release from "Reel Vault":



Quote
The first on screen depiction of Dracula occurs in F. W. Murnau’s horror classic Nosferatu! Real estate agent Jonathan Harker (Wangenheim), travels to Transylvania to visit a new client, Count Dracula (Schreck). Although the locals warn Harker away from Dracula's castle, the agent pursues the sale. Staying overnight, Harker feels an odd darkness in this castle, where the Count is oddly asleep during the daytime. After reading a book about vampires, Harker begins to suspect that the Count is really Nosferatu. Meanwhile, Dracula hides in a shipment of coffins and arrives in Wisbourg, Germany, to take ownership of his new home, across the way from Harker's home. As locals mysteriously die, town doctors diagnose a plague...but Harker suspects a more nefarious cause. He races home to save his town and most importantly save his wife, Nina (Schröder). New score composed and performed by pianist Keith Taylor.

Not sure about the Reel Vault version. I know Kino supposedly has the best quality Blu-ray version of the ever done.

Eh, Kino's release is cropped a bit (especially for the English version) and also uses some DNR: https://www.brentonfilm.com/nosferatu-unleashed-in-hd-every-blu-ray-reviewed#do-not-buy-kino-blu-ray

Eureka's UK Masters Of Cinema Blu-Ray release is the best quality wise (though region locked to B): https://www.amazon.co.uk/Nosferatu-Blu-ray/dp/B00EQ27RMM

I would definitely wait for a review on that one.

Which version are you getting, Mike? (I don't have a region-free player.)

Accidentally bought that Kino blu when it came out and saw all the negative reviews after. Just ordered the Eureka version too. They’ve done great work in the past. I love their Thief of Baghdad with Doug Fairbanks and their Island of Lost Souls releases.

I own the Kino but would be willing to switch to the Reel Vault if they did a better job.  So far, I can't find any information on it.

A review is out for it: https://psychobabble200.blogspot.com/2022/10/review-nosferatu-100th-anniversary.html

No pictures but we get some info on it:

Quote
While the Kino disc uses a great deal of inappropriate tinting in garish shades of green, peach, and yellow, Reel Vault's applies the tint more conservatively and realistically. Most of the film plays in black and white with a bluish-white apparent in Murnau's brightly lit "evening" scenes and a more sepia tone in several daylight ones. Deep color is rarely used at all (a close up of a Venus flytrap is tinted green). Perhaps in a few instances, a bit more creativity would have been welcome, such as a bit of pale yellow or pink during the big sunrise finale instead of straight black and white, but overall, the lighter touch of Reel Vault's tinting preserves the über-Goth atmosphere much better than Kino's candy palette.

I think the Reel Vault is MOD.
