Estate agent, Knock, dispatches his associate, Hutter, to Count Orlok’s castle in Transylvania as the Count wants to purchase a house in Wisbourg. Hutter leaves his innocent wife, Ellen, with some friends while he is away. Once at the castle, Hutter manages to sell the Count the house, but he also notices unusual occurrences. Hutter eventually sees the Count’s sleeping chamber in a crypt, and believes the Count is really a vampire. While Hutter is trapped in the castle, the Count, hiding in a shipment of coffins, makes his way to Wisbourg. Hutter himself tries to rush home to save his town and, most importantly, save Ellen from Nosferatu’s imminent arrival.
