Bite This!: Nosferatu the Vampyre (1979, Werner Herzog)
Friday, August 29 & Saturday, August 30; Midnite | Buy Tickets

Teutonic filmmaker, and all all around mad genius Werner Herzog makes films that run a pretty wide spectrum: from captivating, like his sickly take on Nosferatu, to downright unwelcoming (give Even Dwarfs Started Small a shot). Impenetrable or not, Herzog’s movies are always a marvel. He’s a kind of enlightening force in cinema; impenetrable or not, his films pack the kind of lasting impact on the viewer that some directors — good ones, at that — may only achieve once in a career.

Below we collected posters from Herzog’s narrative career, a filmography like no other, filled with dwarves, rubber barons and a crack-addled Nic Cage.
