Nosferatu is based on Bram Stoker’s Dracula. When director F.W. Murnau was not able to gain the rights to the novel itself, names and details were changed so he could make the movie. Nosferatu himself is physically different from more well-known Dracula characters. Nosferatu has become iconic to fans of Dracula movies and vampire stories in general.
