As perhaps the final nail in the coffin (get it?) of Anchor Bay's acclaimed series of Werner Herzog DVD releases, on 7/9 they'll release one of Herzog's most acclaimed works, the 1979 remake of Nosferatu. This two-disc set features a new 1.85;1 anamorphic widescreen transfer, English 5.1 Dolby surround remix (plus the film's original mono track) an audio commentary by director Werner Herzog and Norman Hill, the "Making of Nosferatu" featurette, trailers and talent bios. Retail is $29.95. And 7/9 will also see the release of The Herzog/Kinksi Collection, a 6-disc box set featuring Aguirre The Wrath of God, Nosferatu, Qyzeck, Fitcarraldo and Cobra Verde, along with the documentary My Best Fiend. Only 5,000 copies will be issued, and retail is $79.95.
It doesn't say, but I assume/hope the editions in the box set have the same bonus features as the individual AB releases.
