Malkovich plays Creator/FriedrichWilhelmMurnau, the German director who sets out to make his most identifiable film, ''{{Film/Nosferatu}}: Eine Symphonie des Grauens.'' To make his somewhat lawyer-friendly take on {{Dracula}}, he hires the mysterious Max Shreck to play the vampire Count Orlock. Murnau knows that Schreck is a real-life vampire, and he's hired the actor to ensure a real-life performance. [[{{Pun}} But, he's really bitten off more than he can chew this time]]...

* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: Everyone involved with filmmaking will recognize the film as one big metaphor for film production itself. RogerEbert noticed this in his [[http://rogerebert.suntimes.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20010126/REVIEWS/101260302/1023 review]]:
-->'''RogerEbert:''' Schreck muses aloud, "I do not think we need . . . the writer . . ." Scenes like this work as inside comedy, but they also have a practical side: The star is hungry, and because he is the star, he can make demands. This would not be the first time a star has eaten a writer alive.
