Robert Eggers Promises a Horror-Filled Christmas in New Teaser for Nosferatu

Robert Eggers Promises a Horror-Filled Christmas in New Teaser for Nosferatu

Auteur director Robert Eggers is best known for his period horror dramas like The VVitch and The Northman, and now he’s set to make his own spin on one of the oldest adaptations of Bram Stoker’s infamous Dracula.

Here’s the first teaser for Nosferatu:

Here’s the official description:

Robert Eggers’ NOSFERATU is a gothic tale of obsession between a haunted young woman and the terrifying vampire infatuated with her, causing untold horror in its wake.

Bill Skarsgard is set to star as the titular Count Orlok, but oddly enough, they didn’t even reveal his Nosferatu look for this teaser—no doubt it’s something they’re saving for the full trailer. Though Skarsgard is a now show, we do have a look at all the other big names showing up in the film including Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Nicholas Hoult, and Emma Corrin. The film also brings back some of Eggers’ previous collaborators including Ralph Ineson and Willem Dafoe.

If you’ve watched an Eggers flick before, you’ll know that he can definitely set a mood, and while his last film The Northman wasn’t really a horror tale, a story like Nosferatu can make perfect use of Eggers’ signature style.

With the movie set to release in December, it’s possible that we could get our first look at Count Orlok around August. A lot of hype has been surrounding Skarsgard’s final look in the film. Eggers has even said about the look, “I’ll say that Bill has so transformed, I’m fearful that he might not get the credit that he deserves because he’s just… he’s not there.”

Catch Nosferatu when it drops in theatres this Christmas Dec. 25.
