* ArtisticLicenseHistory: In 1922, shooting outdoors at night simply wasn't possible with the film stocks and cameras available, and in fact all of the night scenes in the actual ''Nosferatu'' were obviously shot [[HollywoodDarkness day-for-night]] for this reason. However, it serves the "Max Schreck was a vampire" narrative better to pretend these scenes were shot at night.

* GratuitousGerman: HerrDoktor, Herr Doktor, Herr Doktor, Ja...
** Also, EddieIzzard as Gustav. He basically uses the same German accent he uses for his stand up routine about the Heimmlich Manoeuvre.

*** The two crew members' reaction to Max plucking a bat out of the air and greedily eating it is: "What an actor!"

* BadBadActing: Schreck is hyped up as an insanely dedicated method actor who toured with a prestigious company. However, his actual performance is stilted line readings, dialog screwups and looking at the camera. Of course, it makes sense because he isn't really an actor and was cast for the overwhelming creepiness and legitmacy he brought to the role.

* BreakingAndBloodsucking: Played with. Schrek doesn't attack Greta in her room, it's a movie set, the bedroom from the climax of Nosferatu. Per the arrangement with Murnau, Schrek only receives his payment for playing "himself" in the movie in the scene were Orlok feeds on Ellen.

* EstablishingCharacterMoment: The first appearance of Shreck. Few vampires have ever made a more frightening entrance - and it's exactly the same as it was in the actual ''Film/{{Nosferatu}}''.

-->'''Max Schreck:''' He has to feed him, when he himself hasn't eaten food in centuries. Can he even remember how to buy bread? How to select cheese and wine? And then he remembers the rest of it. How to prepare a meal, how to make a bed. He remembers his first glory, his armies, his retainers, and what he is reduced to. The loneliest part of the book comes when the man accidentally sees Dracula setting his table.
