* MisplacedWildlife: The "{{werewolf}}" that we see roaming around outside the inn Hutter stops at for the night is actually a hyena.

online. In 2017, a version called ''[[http://nonsilentfilm.com/en/ Nosferatu: the Non Silent Film]]'' was created by Brazilian agency [=AlmapBBDO=] and Punch Audio, which not only re-scores the film but also layers on sound effects and voice clips from Getty Images' massive audio library (a trailer can be seen [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dFUbKJ64BKo&t=25s here]]).

''Film/TheWitch''.



* AdaptationalAttractiveness: Inverted. While Dracula wasn't all that attractive in the original novel, he at least looked relatively normal. Orlok, on the other hand, looks like the plague-bearing monster he really is.

* AnimalMotifs: Orlok has a very subtle yet obvious in hindsight connection with rats and, through them, the plague. His fangs are rat-like incisors rather than the elongated canines usually used for vampires, his pointed nose and thin face gives him a rodent quality to his facial features, even his taloned hands call to minds the grasping paws of a giant rat.

* NeverWorkWithChildrenOrAnimals: One scene has Orlok loading up a horse-drawn cart with coffins. He then gets inside one at the top of the coffin stack. Watch as the lid of the coffin moves up to Orlok's coffin (via stop-motion photography) -- the horses change position a couple of times.

* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Orlok? Orlock? Both spellings have been used frequently, though the former ''seems'' to be the correct one.

* WeatherSavesTheDay: Despite being a stealth-adaptation of ''{{Literature/Dracula}}'', the film doesn't include a character analogous to Dr. Abraham van Helsing (although a scientist studying vampirism in plants who briefly appears may have been loosely based on him but given a greatly diminished role). Due to his van Helsing's absence, Count Orlok is anticlimactically killed by an unexpected sunrise rather than being slain by the cunning doctor like his counterpart in the original novel.

* OurVampiresAreDifferent: As noted above, this film originated the idea that vampires burn in sunlight. Also, Schreck's vampire is rather uniquely portrayed as [[LooksLikeOrlok a rat-like monster]] and the personification of pestilence, as well as having a considerable semblance to some kind of ghost -- the numerous scenes where Orlok seems to materialise or dematerialise at will (such as when carrying his coffin into his new lair), as well as the famous sequence where Orlok seems to sneak into Hutter's home as a disembodied shadow.
