Nosferatu
Movie Quote Quiz

Graf Orlok: Your wife has such a beautiful neck.

Hutter: I am plagued by mosquitoes. Two have just bitten me on the neck, quite close together, one on each side.

Graf Orlok: You have hurt yourself... your precious blood.

Title Card: Nosferatu. Does this word not sound like the midnight call of the Bird of Death? Do not utter it, or the images of life will fade - into pale shadows and ghostly dreams will rise from your heart and feed your Blood.

Hutter: I am going far away to the land of robbers and ghosts.

Ellen Hutter, seine Frau: Why did you kill them... the lovely flowers...?

Knock, ein häusermakler: - of course, it will cost you some effort... a little sweat and... perhaps... a little blood.

Book: Of Vampires: Wherefrom there is no salvation except that a woman without sin should cause the vampire to forget the first cock crow. Of her own free will she should give him her blood.

Plot hole: When Nosferatu is caught in the sunlight towards the end, his reflection can be seen in the tall standing mirror in the corner of the room. This makes no sense because vampires do not cast reflections. Deliberate or not, in the original Bram Stoker novel, there is a scene in which the character Harker is shaving, and is disturbed to see that the Count casts no reflection. There is also a passage that states, "He throws no shadow, he make in the mirror no reflect." Some would argue that the rising of the sun robs him of his powers, giving him the reflection. But his reflection is visible before the rooster starts crowing, before the sun even rises.
