Corrected entry: In the last scene, when Orlock is going to suck Gretta's blood, the actress screams that she can't see his reflection in the mirror. In the 1922 film, however, his reflection is quite visible.

Correction: This movie is not an accurate historical piece. It uses facets of the 1922 filming of Nosferatu as a basis for a fictional "what if" story in which the actor Max Schreck (who plays Orlok) is an ACTUAL vampire. In order to convey this in the story his reflection does not appear in the mirror thus making Gretta scream. In the 1922 film Max Schreck was, however, a real person who did not drink the blood of his co-stars and had a visible reflection.

Continuity mistake: In the last scene to be filmed, with Orlock and Gretta, the candles on the dresser are alternately lit and then out, as Orlock's reflection is visible then not in the mirror.
