Quite possibly, the most dreadfully boring film ever made (a controversial opinion, I know).

It's hard to get a reaction from the audiance of fear when you can't hear anything.Like, at all. I watched it and wasn't impressed. The desin of the monster was creepy and Schrek's performance was good but... Like you said, boring.

I do agree Caesar that it was very boring. I fell asleep five times in quick, 10 second successions in class, when I watched it. I definitely won't re-watch it but overall, it was decent.

Huh, I found it pretty entertaining despite its age. Orlok and Knock are awesome.

I first stumbled across this film when my English teacher had mentioned it once. I did ask her if I could borrow it and she let me. I watched it later that night and didn't understand the praise. Now that I'm more mature and intelligent I can see that it is a great film.

First became aware of the film from his appearance in Spongebob. Am I the only one?

It's ironic because that joke always made me laugh real hard, but when I watched I got terrified and felt paranoid that I'd see him at the bottom of the stairs to slowly walk up to me. So I have an awkward relationship with Count Oarlock.

It baffles me how little respect people have for classics sometimes, to everyone who says it’s boring, please realize that’s not an actual criticism, that just means you personally weren’t thrilled; which isn’t the movies fault. You can find a movie boring and it still works.
