Directed by Carl Theodor Dreyer. The most spectral—and perhaps creepiest—of all vampire films tells of a stranger who arrives at a European village where the locals behave in a peculiar, sinister fashion. Haunting imagery and a claustrophobic mood of dread take precedence over narrative clarity. (France/Germany, 1932, subtitles, b&w, Blu-ray, 73 min.)
