The First Teaser for Robert Eggers’ Nosferatu Holds Back the Good Stuff

A very merry vampire Christmas to all who celebrate! That’s when Nosferatu, the next film from The Lighthouse and The Northman director Robert Eggers arrives—all festive and red with blood, one supposes.

And one will have to keep supposing even after seeing this first teaser, which withholds much of what we want to see: Bill Skarsgård as the title character (known also as Count Orlok). Instead, we get Lily-Rose Deep, breathily whispering her lines, and a lot of people saying, “He is coming” while he proceeds not to come. Is it moody? Yes. Yes, it is moody as hell.

The description says only, “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.” Depp plays Ellen Hutter, said haunted young woman; Nicholas Hoult, in his second recent go-round with a big big vampire (following Renfield), plays her husband, Thomas, a real-estate agent who may find himself with a very odd client.

The rest of the cast includes Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Kraven the Hunter) as Friedrich Harding, Emma Corrin (The Crown) as Anna Harding, and the most excellent Willem Dafoe as Professor Albin Eberhart Von Franz.

Nosferatu is in theaters December 25th. icon-paragraph-end
