Nosferatu: Trailer Robert Eggers New Gothic Vampire Horror Remake

We have been reporting on Nosferatu since its early days of pre-production. Now, we are delighted to be able to share with you the official trailer 

When the news of Eggers doing a remake of Nosferatu started to spread, it left many “fans” very unhappy. Hey, I am not singling out Eggers here, these so-called fans, those ninja keyboard warriors like to tear apart every production…mostly,before even a script has been written. Are they right to do that? In my opinion, No. 

I mean, yeah, a lot of reboots, remakes, prequels and sequels are a pile of steaming dog poo…but not all of them and I think Eggers is one of the most important genre filmmakers of our times. This isn’t some studio regurgitation trying to ride on the vampiric wings of a classic horror movie. Eggers is a fan of gothic horror and he has already proven he can nail the genre with his two productions The VVitch and The Lighthouse.

The trailer for Nosferatu does a brilliant job of showing us that this could be the best gothic horror vampire film since…dare I say it, Bram Stoker’s Dracula. It looks perfect, the cast is fantastic and drives terror right through our hearts like a wooden stake without even showing us a glimpse of the vampire horror. For those of you who complain about a trailer given away too much of a trailer, I urge you to watch this one. It sets us up, it hooks us without showing us anything other than the huge production that has gone into this to bring it to life.

Nosferatu is due to be released on 25th December 2024. I’ve said this before, being able to watch this on Christmas day is gonna make one hell of a difference than waking up and watching Superman 2, or Home Alone. Eggers will hopefully disgust and repel us so much that we will find it impossible to eat our Christmas dinner. 

Starring Nicolas Hoult (who recently starred in Nic Cage vampire film Renfield), Lily-Rose Depp, Willem Dafoe, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Emma Corrin, Ralph Ineson, Simon McBurney and Bill Skarsgard as the terrifying Count Orlock.

In the meantime, while we’re waiting on the release of Nosferatu, I urge you to check out the original 1922 film. Also, Shadow of the Vampire which, funnily enough, stars Willem Dafoe as Max Schreck. Max Schreck was the man who starred in the 1922 original and Shadow of the Vampire is also a beautiful reimagining of Nosferatu. And, last but not least, Bram Stoker’s Dracula. The trailer really gave me that vibe of Stoker’s Dracula. If you Google Nosferatu, it is confirmed that Nosteratu 1922 and Bram Stoker’s Dracula are both inspirations for Eggers’ gothic vampire tale. 

I’ve nothing but complete faith in Eggers’ approach to bring us something terrifying and hauntingly beautiful. Stay tuned for more information as it is released.
