"Your wife has such a beautiful neck..."

We still haven't had a full reveal of It star Bill Skarsgård as the sinister Count Orlok in Robert Eggers' highly-anticipated Nosferatu remake, but we did get a blurry look at the vampire's visage last week, and this latest still provides another teasing glimpse.

This time, we see the undead nobleman's skeletal hands as he stands beside a rather terrified-looking Thomas Hutter, who's played by Renfield and Mad Max: Fury Road actor Nicholas Hoult.

Lily Rose-Depp (The Idol) will play Hutter's wife, Ellen, with whom Orlok develops an unhealthy obsession (if you've read Bram Stoker's Dracula, you'll have a pretty good idea of what to expect).

During a new interview, Eggers reiterated that Skarsgård completely lost himself in the role, and was even more "unrecognizable" as the vampire than he was under the prosthetics that allowed him to bring Pennywise to life in the It movies..

"There are things that are Schreck-like but I felt we had to do something else," The Northman director tells Total Film. "Basically I was like, 'What would a dead Transylvanian nobleman actually look like for real?' Bill lost a tremendous amount of weight."

"He’s so transformed in every aspect that I don’t know if people will give him the credit," the filmmaker went on. "You can see Bill [as Pennywise] in the It make-up; you can’t detect any Bill here. He worked with an opera coach to lower his voice an octave. I think people are going to think we treated it digitally, but that’s his performance."

Check out the image at the link below, and let us know what you think in the comments section.

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. We're expecting a trailer to debut online fairly soon, so be sure to keep an eye on FearHQ for updates.

Dude. The original, silent film of Nosferatu was and still is a classic! I love it. Yet to be beaten.

@lazlodaytona - I watched it for the first time earlier this year and it's crazy how genuily creepy Max Schreck's Orlok still is, despite all the parodies and memes over the years.

Obviously giving Bill a chance, but I'm personally little disappointed that they didn't stick with Doug Jones (unless that was always just a rumor).

@FinnishDude - The Doug Jones version was actually a different thing. A small crowd-funded project. Doug is fantastic, and I'd watch anything he's in, but the make up on that project struck me as a bit... Uninspired. Not bad, just easy. From what I know, they did finish filming at least. Probably hard to find any sort of distribution now, with Eggers version coming out.

@Patient2670 - Ah, had no idea. Thanks!

They're just ripping off 'Salem's Lot.

@Batmangina - sarcasm?
Batmangina - 12/6/2023, 9:27 AM
@WhatIfRickJames - It DOES still exist!!! NGL, Barlow [frick]ed me up at 10 years old and the floating dead kid was intense
WhatIfRickJames - 12/6/2023, 9:29 AM
@Batmangina - I've got a Salem's Lot T-Shirt and it's one of my favorites. I can't believe they pulled that off and it was a TV movie
Batmangina - 12/6/2023, 9:30 AM
@WhatIfRickJames - Agreed!

This and Del Toro’s Frankenstein are my most anticipated genre projects in development rn by far

Still bummed they replaced Anya with Lily-Rose but sign me up for Hoult being in another Vamp flick.
MosquitoFarmer - 12/6/2023, 9:51 AM
This movie is probably going to be frightening as hell!
marvel72 - 12/6/2023, 10:13 AM
This is my most anticipated movie of 2024 and I have to wait a year for it.

Can't wait! I'm seeing The Abyss Special Edition tonight! Saw the boy and the heron on Tuesday, for me it was one of the weaker Ghibli movies. And on Friday is Die Hard wooo

They're gonna have to either release an official still of him as Count Orlok or just release the teaser trailer so we ca finally see all of the hype pay off at the rate the director is praising his transformation. Even if it's still a year in the waiting.
