F.W. Murnau (Malkovich) is a director making Nosferatu on location in Eastern Europe. Determined to make this the most authentic movie ever, Murnau has employed a real vampire, Max Schreck (Dafoe). He explains Schreck's weird behavior by saying that he is a fastidious method actor. As payment, Schreck has been promised drug-addicted beauty Greta (Catherine McCormack). But as Murnau begins filming, the cast and crew begin to wonder about Schreck, especially as strange things begin to happen on and around the set.
