The young clerk of a real estate office Hutter (GUSTAV VON WANGENHEIM) is sent to the carpathian mountains to the count Orlokovi (MAX SCHRECK), to make with him a contract for the purchase of the property. After a tortuous road to welcome the count on his castle. With the advent of the first night, however, Hutter discovers the cruel truth, count Orlok is a vampire. FRIEDRICH WILHELM MURNAU failed to obtain the movie rights to the novel BRAM STOKER's DRACULA and so he altered the names of the persons and the venue of the story planted in the fictional town of WISMAR. Interesting thing also is that Murnau filmed scenes from Orlokova castle in slovakia Orava castle.
