Germany Nosferatu the Vampyre blu-ray

Just read Pro-B's review of the Studio Canal blu-ray:

I must say I can't agree with this statement:
Director Werner Herzog completed Nosferatu the Vampyre in 1979. The film is a remake of F.W. Murnau's legendary 1922 film, but aside from the common characters they share and a few sequences which were shot at the same locations, the two could not be any more different.
While Herzog was going for a different feel and bringing his own sensibility to the project, to me it is obvious that Murnau's film hangs heavily in his mind, because there are several shots in the film that use very similar framing as the Murnau version, and Herzog himself has said that his remake is a tribute to the silent German cinema of Murnau and others.
Anyway I am disappointed that this classic has not got the HD treatment that it deserves. I have the Anchor Bay 2-DVD set and I would have been extremely happy to upgrade it to a proper HD release. I hope at least in the US, some other company that uses a different, better master will put out the film. Kino or Criterion would be great candidates for the task.

Anchor Bay still controls it in the US (via SC). Or at least they did late last year.
