"Nosferatu" is a 1922 German horror film directed by F.W. Murnau. It is considered one of the most influential works in the history of cinema. The film is an unauthorized adaptation of Bram Stoker's novel "Dracula", with some changes to the plot and main character.


The film features the story of a young real estate agent named Hutter who is sent to Transylvania to sell a property to Count Orlok, also known as "Nosferatu." Hutter begins to distrust the Count when he becomes the victim of terrifying dreams and the town is plagued by an epidemic of mysterious deaths. Eventually, Hutter discovers that Nosferatu is actually a vampire who feeds on human blood.


Actor Max Schreck's performance as Nosferatu is considered one of the best in the history of horror cinema.

Its dark direction, terrifying soundtrack and memorable performances ensure that it continues to be enjoyed by horror film fans to this day.
