The first on screen depiction of Dracula occurs in F. W. Murnau’s horror classic Nosferatu! Real estate agent Jonathan Harker (Wangenheim), travels to Transylvania to visit a new client, Count Dracula (Schreck). Although the locals warn Harker away from Dracula’s castle, the agent pursues the sale. Staying overnight, Harker feels an odd darkness in this castle, where the Count is oddly asleep during the daytime. After reading a book about vampires, Harker begins to suspect that the Count is really Nosferatu. Meanwhile, Dracula hides in a shipment of coffins and arrives in Wisbourg, Germany, to take ownership of his new home, across the way from Harker’s home. As locals mysteriously die, town doctors diagnose a plague…but Harker suspects a more nefarious cause. He races home to save his town and most importantly save his wife, Nina (Schröder). New score composed and performed by pianist Keith Taylor.
