Horror Classic ‘Nosferatu’ Gets a Stunning New Sound Design

You have NEVER seen Nosferatu like this before.

One of the very first horror films, director F.W. Murnau’s Nosferatu is nothing short of a true cinema classic. An unofficial adaptation of Bram Stoker’s Dracula, the German Expressionist film has been remade and remixed countless times over the years, with various different musicians adding their own scores to the silent flick; but this latest reimagining is quite unlike any before it.

The folks over at AlmapBBDO, using clips plucked exclusively from the Getty Images audio bank archives, have just given a brand new sound design to the silent horror classic. In Nosferatu – The Non Silent Film, the iconic vampire gets his own voice and language, along with sound effects and a completely new soundtrack that bring a whole new emotion to the scenes.

What people will watch is the original public domain movie from 1922, but in an entirely new experience. During the one-and-a-half-hour remake of the feature, the characters emerge on the scene with a voice from a fictional language, reversing speech files, composing a bleak language for Nosferatu and his victims. Produced by Punch Audio over 3 months, the project in a process of intense research and total dedication, with the collaboration of the teams of AlmapBBDO and Getty Images.

Nosferatu – The Non Silent Film can (and absolutely should) be watched for free over at nonsilentfilm.com, where you can interact with the sound timeline of the production and have access to each file that was used in the film. The website also features a making of the project with interviews full of curiosities, fun facts and interesting details about the production process.

This is simply AWESOME. Check out the trailer below!

    Actually Willem Dafoe did a pretty good rendition of it in a movie called Shadow of the Vampire that came out in 2000. It also has John Malkovich if that matters any. There’s also a 1979 remake with an actor named Klaus Kinski, don’t how good it though, but you may want to give those two a go.
