Named after F. W. Murnau, director of the classic silent vampire film Nosferatu, Murnau the Vampire is an animated retelling of the classic novel Dracula with a twist. The animated short is filmed in black and white and is silent just like Nosferatu, except the soundtrack just happens to be courtesy of none other than Théâtre des Vampires.
Count Murnau, a wealthy eccentric from the Carpathian region
wishes to buy a property in Hannover Germany, the real state agency
sends Mr. Dohart, his best sales representative to close the deal,
but Dohart never gets back. The real state agency sends the young and
newlywed Hutter to take care of this matter, and he parts alone to
Transilvanya leaving his wife Ellen waiting for his return.
When he gets to the castle, Hutter begins to uncover the terrible
secret of the Count, Murnau is a vampire!
And a eerie connection begins to surface between the Count,
Dohart and his wife Ellen.
The Count Murnau retains Hutter against his will inside his castle,
as he begins the journey to his newly acquired property in Hannover,
close to Ellen.
Hutter escapes the dangers from the castle as he begins a deadly race
to stop Murnau.
Hutter arrives only to discover the count settled in his new property
as he tries to seduce Ellen who suddenly fails to a strange disease.
Hutter contacts Dr.Shvert an old master of the dark sciences,
could this two stop the journey of the Count in time?
Murnau the Vampire is one of the cutest things I have ever seen and I absolutely love it. In fact I love it so much I thought I just might share it (give it time to load before watching if you have a slower connection):
