A "Dracula"-inspired classic, in which Count Orlok seeks a new residence and his estate agent's wife. 

Nosferatu, eine Symphonie des Grauens (1922) is a silent classic and a vampire horror film. Nosferatu was shot on-location in Romania, giving the film an authenticity, despite Murnau's attempts to avoid copyright issues surrounding Dracula. The film conveys the true horror of vampires and is famous for several "special effects" scenes with the supernatural stage coach and long shadowy claws. Nosferatu also inspired Shadow of a Vampire with John Malkovich and Willem Dafoe.
