Quite possibly the only remake with a expressed cultural importance. Germany’s cinema lineage, including it’s expressionist past, was interrupted and fractured by the arrival of the nazis. It took almost two full decades for it to recover afterwards. To bride this gap, the grandparents and the parent-less grandchildren, Herzog remade and homaged Murnau’s classic film, (called the greatest German film of all time by Herzog himself).
It was like remaking Casablanca or Gone with the Wind. Imagine that, a horror film as the most important celluloid to a country. Horror and Germany are truly unique circumstances, indeed.
