Nosferatu - Count Orlok by GENZOMAN Nosferatu - Count Orlok by GENZOMAN
Download for a bigger version :)

A old commission from mid of 2009. Well, more VAMPIRES and NIGHT CREATURES, this time another well knowed by castlevania fans, did you remember him as Orlox on symphony of the night? yeah! the same, but I supose they change the name under copyrights issues (castlevania is full of awesome references to movies, as a fan of horror genre I love that). Oh! BTW, this remember me a lot of demon crest, a game i used to love for the super nintendo. if you want some old school action, very similar (but not the same) to metroidvanias, you must play this game :) GO BELMONTS! GO FIRE BRAND!

next time, count chocula! :p

Enough bla-bla! letīs wikiattack!

In Nosferatu, Count Orlok (who is in actuality the vampire Nosferatu) poses as a nobleman from the Carpathian Mountains who moves to the fictional city of Wisborg, Germany, and brings death with him. He lives in a vast castle high in the mountains, which is badly neglected and has a highly sinister feel to it. Local townsfolk refuse to go anywhere near his castle. Orlok is visited by the young Thomas Hutter, the assistant of a Wisborg estate agent, who travels to his castle to show properties for sale in Wisborg. Orlok conceals himself in one of his soil-filled coffins and is loaded onto a ship bound for Wisborg. On board the ship, he kills every crew member until only the captain and his first mate remain. Later when the first mate goes to the cargo hold to investigate, Count Orlok rises from his coffin, terrifying the first mate who jumps overboard in fear. The captain ties himself to the wheel of the ship when Count Orlok creeps up on him and kills the captain. Upon his arrival in Wisborg, he spreads disease and plague, forcing the local authorities to declare a quarantine and provoking hysteria amongst the citizens. At the end, Orlok attempts to attack Hutter's young wife in her room, but is caught unaware by the rays of the rising sun, which burn him away in a cloud of smoke.

as a note:
Nosferatu, eine Symphonie des Grauens (translated as Nosferatu: A Symphony of Horror; also known as Nosferatu: A Symphony of Terror or simply Nosferatu) is a German Expressionist vampire horror film, directed by F. W. Murnau, starring Max Schreck as the vampire Count Orlok. The film, shot in 1921 and released in 1922, was in essence an unauthorized adaptation of Bram Stoker's Dracula, with names and other details changed because the studio could not obtain the rights to the novel (for instance, "vampire" became "Nosferatu" and "Count Dracula" became "Count Orlok". At least one English language print features title cards with the actual names from Stoker's novel including "Count Dracula").

Count Dracula and Count Olrok are the only real vampires i have ever really liked:D Dracula is charming and cunning while Orlok is creepy and terrifying in appearance.

Exceellent job! I've always loved Max Shreck's Count Orlok/Dracula.

Another noteworthy vampire was Kurt Barlow. I've occasionally wondered who would win in a battle between those two. I think Barlow would win due to his immense age.

Orlok's story, especially the part where he was visited by an estate agent in the mountains, is almost the same as the story of Bram Stoker's Dracula.
