Reviews in German: "Einzigartige beklemmende Bilderkompositionen über die Abgründe der Seele" (Stuttgarter Zeitung)
Remarks and general Information in German: "Dreyers erster Tonfilm ist ein Klassiker des Horror-Genres, der ganz vom berühmten Weiss Dreyers durchtränkt ist, »jenem Weiss, das man in gewissen morgendlichen Träumen erleben kann, wenn das Tageslicht bereits auf das Auge fällt und die Traumbilder auszuwischen beginnt.« (Peter Weiss). »Horror hat nichts mit den Dingen zu tun, die uns umgeben, sondern er steckt in unserem Unterbewusstsein « (Dreyer). »So sehr sich Dreyers Kamera zurückhielt, als sie JEANNE D’ARC filmte, so sehr befreit sie sich und wird zum Federhalter eines jungen Mannes, um den Bewegungen des Vampyr die grauen Mauern entlang zu folgen, ihnen vorauszueilen oder sie zu erraten.« (François Truffaut) Filmmuseum München
