The German director F.W. Murnau hires Max Schreck, the "ultimate method actor, " to play Count Orlock in his vampire masterpiece Nosferatu. In Murnau's quest for realism, the movie is filmed at night in Czechoslovakia and Schreck appears only in character and full makeup. As cast and crew begin to disappear, it seems that Murnau has made a devil's bargain with Schreck, whose performance is too authentic.

John Malkovich single handedly ruined this movie. What a terrible actor. Willem Dafoe was brilliant, though.

Part fact and part fiction Shadow of the Vampire is an homage to the making of the very first vampire movie Nosferatu. Based on the novel Dracula the black and white movie Nosferatu was made in the 1920s and to this day is still considered a classic vampire movie. John Malkovich plays the director F.W. Murnau while Willem Dafoe plays Max Schreck's vampire role.
