‘Nosferatu’ Movie Synopsis
Nosferatu begins in the town of Wisbourg. Estate agent, Mr. Knock, receives a commission from Count Orlok to find a house for him. He dispatches his young assistant, Hutter, to Orlok’s castle in the far off Carpathians with orders to buy the vacant house just opposite Hutter’s own. The Count is all too eager to buy the proposed property; especially after he sees a photo of Hutter’s pretty wife Ellen.
Hutter quickly realizes the man is he’s helping is evil when the Count locks him up. Once Orlok travels to Wisbourg, plague descends upon the town, and the people of Wisbourg begin to sense the coming of evil. Hutter eventually escapes Orlok’s castle; determined to return home as quickly as possible, but now exhausted and ill, he finds himself in hospital. Hutter nonetheless arrives home the same day as Orlok and the townsfolk begin to panic over the increasing number of deaths.
