The Spirited Dark Side of Nosferatu and Beyond the Infinite Echoes

Netflix has a slew of silent movies made available for free streaming. Among them are two versions of perhaps the greatest horror movie of the silent era, NOSFERATU.
They are actually the same film (albeit with a few edits with titles and lengths) with a different soundtrack: one uses a Dolby Digital score composed and performed by Silent Orchestra with some organ compilations performed by Timothy Howard. This version has the Netflix title of Nosferatu: Original Version (even though the digital print still claims the title card Nosferatu, a symphony of horror.). This is far from the true 1922 original Hans Erdmann score, which was meant to be performed live by an orchestra during projection of the film and has since (and sadly) been lost to time.
