Nosferatu (Nosferatu: Eine Symphonie des Grauens)

Dir: F.W. Murnau | Germany | 1922 | 94 mins | Cert. PG

Nosferatu is one of the silent era’s masterpieces. Its eerie, Gothic feel – and chilling performance from Max Shrek as the vampire – set the template for horror films that followed. Darkly humorous and tender too – this is a story of yearning and the search for fulfilment. 

“Minima’s unmistakeably spine-tingling music clung to each twist of the movie… spellbinding accompaniment.” (Pamela Hutchinson, The Guardian)
“A superbly sinister live score by the soundtrack group Minima.” (Ludovic Hunter-Tilney, Financial Times)
“The atmosphere was absolutely magical, hundreds of people seemed utterly spellbound.” (East End Film Festival)

This soundtrack is available as a download and on CD. Please visit our shop for details.

Written in 2009, our score for Nosferatu is very popular in the autumn… when the nights are drawing in – a Halloween special!

In 2012 we collaborated with Paul Ayres’ Queldryk Choral Ensemble to create an arrangement of the score with a 40-piece choir. This was performed at Spitalfields Market in July 2012 and won that year’s Silent London poll for best live score.
