Nosferatu the Vampyre is a 1979 German horror film. It is a remake of the 1922 movie Nosfertau, which had been an unauthorized retelling of the Count Dracula story. In the movie, Count Dracula shifts his hunting grounds from Transylvania to Wismar, Germany. He kills lots of people - but the deaths are initially chalked up to a plague. To make matters even worse, Dracula becomes interested in a young woman named Lucy Harker.
