The version with English title cards still names the characters Harker, Mina, Renfield, and Van Helsing. And you can see that the story holds very closely to Bram Stoker’s original novel except that Bremen is substituted as Harker’s home town where Count Orlok journey’s for fresh blood. This version of Renfield (Granach) is absolutely mad and I thought much more entertaining. However Harker (Wangenheim) still has his proper place in the story as the one who journeys to the Count’s castle, nearly loses his life there, and must return to save Mina from the clutches of Nosferatu. It has been stated many times before that this portrayal of the most famous vampire is very rat-like. In fact the supernatural vampire legend can be understood as an explanation for the natural, but tragic spread of the plague. Lots of creepy moments, but I thought it really dragged in the third act.
