The odd Count seeks to buy a house near Hutter and his wife, Ellen (Nina), in Bremen.

Meanwhile, Orlok’s servant, Knock (Renfield), prepares for his master to arrive at his new home.

Episode 03-24 Nosferatu

Nosferatu (1922) is an immensely influential silent horror film, much more so than its lackluster remake, Nosferatu the Vampyre (1979). Join us as we discuss the copyright controversy between the original and the Bram Stoker estate, and the similarities and differences of both German films—the former containing iconic imagery that still resonates and influences today, and the latter which further proves that remakes are most often unnecessary… even with silent films! Listen as Johnny Has the Keys journeys to the Carpathian Mountains of Transylvania in search of the very first vampire film.
