Synopsis

F.W. Murnau's silent vampire classic. Count Orlok (Max Schreck) decides to move from his ruined castle to the city of Bremen and hires real estate agent Thomas Hutter (Gustav von Wangenheim) to make the arrangements for him. But Orlok is also the vampire Nosferatu, and when he takes a shine to Hutter's young wife Ellen (Greta Schroder), it seems that the worst is indeed possible. Adapted from Bram Stoker's 'Dracula' (though with character names changed for legal reasons), Murnau's film also features some of the most famous sequences in cinema, including the Count's climb up the stairs to Ellen's room, his claw-hand outstretched and his crooked shadow on the wall. This is the version restored by the Münchner Filmmuseum and the Cineteca del Comune di Bologna, featuring a new score by James Bernard.
