This is a spooky horror classic. F.W. Murnau wanted to adapt Dracula for film but could not get the rights to it. So, what does he do? He makes the movie anyway. He changed the title and the names but the story is essentially the same. For the role of Count Drac-- err, I mean, Count Orlok, he cast actor Max Schreck whose lanky frame and scary makeup makes for one of the spookiest on-screen vampires ever captured on film.
