Legendary director Werner Herzog (Grizzly Man, Fitzcarraldo) delivers this unusual take on the classic tale of Dracula starring screen madman Klaus Kinski as the vampire! Estate agent Jonathan Harker (Bruno Ganz) is dispatched to Count Dracula’s castle in Transylvania in an attempt to sell him a house in Wismar, Germany. Unbeknownst to Harker, Count Dracula is a vampire, a creature of the night, who will bring death and destruction to his new home. We’re screening a very rare 35mm print of this modern classic on Halloween night for maximum effect!
