A man by the name of Thomas Hutter visits Count Orlok, a vampire living in a castle in Transylvania. The next morning, he notices puncture wounds on his neck. He begins to fall ill. By investigating vampires while in town, he suspects that Orlok is Nosferatu, known as the “Bird of Death.” He later finds Orlok stacking coffins, which are then shipped down river, with Orlok hiding in one of them. One by one, members of the ship crew begin to die. Hutter returns to his hometown, only to find that Orlok has moved in across the street. There, Hutter resolves to defeat him.
