Nosferatu Basic Plot –  The story is narrated from the diary of Johann Cavallius, historian of the city of Bremen,  who is wondering if it was the Nosferatu who brought the plaque to Bremen in 1838. Newlyweds  Hutter [Gustav von Wangenheim] and Ellen [Greta Schroeder] are saddened when Hutter is  sent to Transylvania by Hutter's employer Knock [Alexander Grannach] to arrange for Count  Orlok's [Max Schreck] purchase of a house across the street from the Hutters' house in Bremen.  Hutter travels to Transylvania where he stays with the Count, is sucked by the Count, and  eventually escapes from the castle but not before seeing the Count depart on a cart loaded with  coffins. While Hutter recuperates in a hospital after succeeding in his escape, the Count moves  into the house across from the Hutters'. The rise in deaths is accredited to a plague thought to  have arrived with the Demeter. The "Book of the Vampires" tells Ellen what she must do to end  the vampire. The Count meets his doom when Ellen manages to keep him until after cock crow.
