Accompanied live by Ellyott, a veteran Tel-Aviv/ London musician and DJ, performing a daring new score, invoking techno, art rock and classical music, the 100-year-old silent masterpiece by F.W. Murnau comes alive.
Thomas Hutter is secretary to an estate agent in Wisborg, where he lives happily with his wife Ellen. One day his boss sends him to Transylvania on business, to negotiate with Baron Orlok about purchasing a house. His wife Ellen senses that something is amiss, she is aware of the danger which threatens her husband, but he will not be held back.
It is nighttime before Hutter meets the strange master of the castle—the latter signs the contract. When Hutter wakes the next morning, he discovers small red marks on his neck and guesses the horrors to come. Orlok is a vampire. Hutter flees the castle at once, afraid that the ghost is on his way to his wife.
One day a ship with no one at the helm lands at Wisborg, its cargo bringing plague, death and ruin to the inhabitants. The dead all have the same red marks on their necks. Ellen recognizes the challenge, and in order to put an end to the disaster, she sacrifices herself and surrenders to the vampire. The mysterious form dissolves into the air in the first light of the next morning.
