1838. En la ciudad de Wisborg viven felices el joven Hutter y su mujer Ellen, hasta que el oscuro agente inmobiliario Knock decide enviar a Hutter a Transilvania para cerrar un negocio con el conde Orlok. Se trata de la venta de finca en Wisborg que linda con la casa de Hutter. Durante el largo camino, Hutter pernocta de una posada, donde ojea un viejo tratado sobre vampiros que encuentra en su habitación. Una vez en el castillo, es recibido por el siniestro conde, que se excita cuando el joven se corta un dedo. Al día siguiente, Hutter amanece con dos pequeñas marcas en el cuello, que interpreta como picaduras de mosquito. Una vez firmado el contrato, descubre que el conde es, en realidad, un vampiro. Al verle partir hacia su nuevo hogar, Hutter teme por Ellen. El joven muy debilitado por las mordeduras del vampiro, es internado en un hospital. Al mismo tiempo Ellen contrae una misteriosa enfermedad y también Knock, bajo influjo del conde enloquece. El velero Empusa parte del puerto de Barna. En él viaja el conde, acompañado de varios ataúdes llenos de tierra y ratas. Durante la travesía se declara la peste a bordo y uno tras otro van pereciendo todos los miembros de la tripulación, siendo el conde el único que arriba al puerto de Wisborg. Amparado por la oscuridad de la noche, desembarca y se dirige a su nueva mansión. Poco después, llega Hutter ya restablecido. La peste hace estragos en la ciudad. Ellen lee que sólo el sacrificio de una mujer sin pecado, que haga olvidar al vampiro el primer canto del gallo, puede librarles de su azote. La joven no ve otra salida: abre la ventana de su cuarto y propicia la llegada del vampiro, que cae fulminado con los primeros rayos del sol

[The hunchback of Notre Dame (silent film)]: A deformed bellringer at Notre Dame cathedral in Paris in the late 15th century, rescues a gypsy girl from the evil intentions of her guardian. As the bellringer, Quasimodo, Lon Chaney is a marvel of makeup and nonverbal expression, shuffling through the streets of medieval Paris, communing with the cathedral gargoyles, dutifully suffering the lash and humiliation for a crime committed against another, expressing a heart-rending love for a beautiful gypsy who naively sees only a cruel military officer as the heroic ideal. Based on the novel by Victor Hugo

Nosferatu : a symphony of horror by F. W Murnau( visu )
2 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and held by 13 libraries worldwide
An estate agent's clerk (von Wangenheim) leaves his bride (Schroeder) in the city of Bremen to conduct business in the distant Carpathian mountains, with an eccentric client named Graf Orlok (Schreck). However, the closer he gets to his destination, the more terrified become the people he meets. What he finds at Orlok's sinister castle is more horrifying than he could possibly have imagined ... This was the very first film to be based on Bram Stoker's now infamous novel "Dracula". Names and locations were changed but Stoker's estate, who had not given permission for the novel to be filmed, recognised the obvious and alarming similarities and sued the producers. An English judge ordered all copies of the film to be destroyed and the original negative burned. Fortunately for us, prints survived in Germany
