4. Klaus Kinski, "Nosferatu the Vampyre" (1979) "Shot for shot, this is just the most beautiful vampire movie, and the tone of it just freaked people out. This is the third Nosferatu on my list but you can't leave it out." The movie is a hybrid, paying homage to the Murnau film and bundling it with much of the familiar myths of Bram Stoker's 1897 novel "Dracula." This was one of the famed collaborations between director Werner Herzog and his volatile on-screen muse Kinski.
