Nosferatu the Vampyre (ger. Nosferatu: Phantom der Nacht, eng. Nosferatu: Phantom of the Night) is a 1979 West German horror film, set primarily in 19th Century Wismar, Germany and Transylvania, Romania. Written and directed by Werner Herzog, Nosferatu the Vampyre stars Klaus Kinski as Count Dracula, Isabelle Adjani as Lucy Harker and Bruno Ganz as Jonathan Harker. The film also features French artist-writer Roland Topor as Renfield. Although the production is technically an adaptation of Bram Stoker's 1897 novel Dracula, the film was actually conceived as a stylistic remake of the 1922 German Dracula adaptation, Nosferatu, eine Symphonie des Grauens.
