Considered shocking upon its initial 1920s release, NOSFERATU is widely recognized today as a must-see horror classic. It is a German expressionist film. Essentially an unauthorized adaptation of Bram Stoker's Dracula, this landmark of German expressionism was directed by by F.W. Murnau and stars Max Schreck as the vampire Count Orlok. Recounted from the diary of Bremen historian Johann Cavallius, he speculates about whether Nosferatu brought the plague to the city in 1838. The disease's arrival coincides with Count Orlok's move to Wisburg, his dealings with the realtor Thomas Hutter and the Count's obsession with Hutter's wife Ellen?who is the only one with the power to end the evil with the "Book of the Vampires."
