No sign of this one being released online, unfortunately, but we have some first reactions to the CinemaCon trailer for Robert Eggers' Nosferatu remake, and it sounds every bit as terrifying as we'd hoped.

Though it (frustratingly) hasn't been released online, the first trailer for Robert Eggers' highly-anticipated remake of horror classic Nosferatu screened during CinemaCon earlier this week, and based on the reactions, it sounds every bit as terrifying as we'd hoped.

The footage begins with Lily-Rose Depp's Ellen Sutter praying by candlelight. “Come to me, come to me, hear my call,” she intones before a hand reaches out to grab her neck.

From there, we see moody shots of wintery, lamp-lit streets, rats scurrying across cobblestones, frightened villagers with wooden stakes at the ready, and - since it wouldn't be a vampire movie without it - plenty of gushing blood.

Bill Skarsgård's titular undead nobleman, Count Orlok, is only briefly glimpsed as he hunches over to drain an unfortunate victim, but is said to be a chilling sight to behold.

You can check out some reactions below.

F.W. Murnau directed the original 1922 classic, while Werner Herzog helmed a rather bizarre 1979 remake. The story is loosely based on Dracula, but there are several key differences.

"Nosferatu tells a gothic tale of obsession between a haunted young woman in 19th century Germany and the ancient Transylvanian vampire who stalks her, bringing untold horror with him."

 Nosferatu was recently given an official release date, and will arrive on Christmas Day, 2024.

If there’s ever a director to bet on - it’s Robert Eggers.

Can’t wait!

I am so hyped! The Witch is top notch with only a 4m dollar budget

@bobevanz - I've liked/loved all Eggers movies. The Witch, The Northman, and The Lighthouse were all pretty great.

@CorndogBurglar - I’ve seen Northman and Lighthouse. LH was disturbing, but incredibly artistic. Northman was wild. He has an eye for environments and story telling that feel almost like a dream.

But they’re the kind of movies I can only stomach once. That’s why I haven’t sat through the Witch yet. But it’s on the list.

@JustAWaffle - Id say The Witch is the best of the three

@JustAWaffle - I can understand that! I have no desire to watch The Witch or Lighthouse again. But I did love them. That just tells me they are really memorable movies.

I could watch Northman again though.

Robert Eggers has made three, robust, well-crafted films. His output is slow, he doesn't chase box-office and he obviously has his own set of rules that govern his results. This looks like another gem - and I love the visual 'London After Midnight' (1927) reference. Can't wait!
