‘Nosferatu’ Trailer: Robert Eggers’ Remake is a Blood Soaking Nightmare

From Pennywise the clown to one of the most famous vampires of all time, Bill Skarsgård is set to transform into Nosferatu in Robert Eggers’ upcoming reimagining of the iconic 1922 German Expressionist silent film. Horror fans will have to keep waiting to see Skarsgård’s full appearance as Count Orlok, as the movie’s first trailer from Focus Features continues to keep the vampire’s complete look a mystery. Skarsgård is barely seen in the clip outside of a few quick shots, but his character’s haunting presence looms large.

“Nosferatu” is directed and written by Eggers, a favorite among horror fans thanks to directorial efforts such as “The Witch” and “The Lighthouse.” Eggers’ last film was the Viking revenge epic “The Northman,” which was also released by Focus Features.

“Nosferatu” is described as “a gothic tale of obsession between a haunted young woman and the terrifying vampire infatuated with her, causing untold horror in its wake,” according to the logline.

Lily-Rose Depp stars as Ellen Hutter, the woman Nosferatu is obsessed with. Nicholas Hoult plays Thomas Hutter, Ellen’s husband and a real estate agent who comes into contact with his new client, not knowing that the Count is a centuries-old vampire. The cast also includes Aaron Taylor-Johnson as Friedrich Harding, Emma Corrin as Anna Harding, and Willem Dafoe as Professor Albin Eberhart Von Franz.
