What is Robert Eggers’ ‘Nosferatu’ About?
The central story fixates on the enigmatic and foreboding figure of Count Orlok, a vampire driven by the desire to instill fear and dominate. When he relocates to a foreign land, he becomes enamoured and obsessed with a young woman named Ellen, who bears a striking resemblance to his long-lost love. As Ellen’s husband, Thomas Hutter, progressively unravels the chilling reality about Orlok, he races against the clock to shield Ellen and their community from the insatiable bloodlust of this monstrous vampire.
Bill Skarsgård was cast in the lead role in September 2022, while Lily-Rose Depp was said to be in talks to play Ellen. In October, discussions began with Nicholas Hoult for the role of Thomas, and by January, all three actors were officially announced as part of the cast, with the inclusion of Willem Dafoe, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Simon McBurney, Emma Corrin, and Ralph Ineson. Prominent filming locations across Europe included the 14th-century Rožmitál Castle in Rožmitál pod Tremšínem, and Prague’s esteemed Invalidovna complex, a Baroque national landmark within Czechia. Principal photography wrapped up on May 19, 2023.
Speaking earlier this summer about the film, Eggers explained how the work was pushing him to go further than he had so far managed to reach as a filmmaker.
“I’m trying to go beyond what I’m capable of. As always, it was a difficult shoot. Last night we were doing a scene on a ship with a lot of rain and waves, and the rain deflector, which tries to blow rain out of the lens, was breaking down and fogging. I spent the past several days working only with Russian sailors on a boat. I’m so happy to have made The Northman first and to have learned what I learned. When I think about the production plan of Nosferatu that we had the first time around, I’m sure I would have somehow pulled it out of my butt, but it’s hard not to imagine it being a failure.”
