Murnau) (John Malkovich) takes his Berlin-based cast and crew on-location in Slovakia and Poland in order to shoot ''Nosferatu'', an unauthorized version of Bram Stoker's 1897 novel ''Dracula''. He informs them that the person playing the part of the vampire Count Orlok, an obscure German (German people) theater performer named Max Schreck (Willem Dafoe), is a highly professional

character actor, but in order to involve himself fully in his character, he will only appear among the cast and crew in full make-up and character (the real life Schreck was a German stage and film actor who appeared in several films, including ''Die Finanzen des Grossherzogs''). The main setting is an old Slovak (Slovakia) castle. Schreck is there waiting for the filming team, and his appearance and behavior are truly disquieting. The cameraman soon starts feeling terrorized and sick, and has to be taken away and replaced. The other main actor, Gustav von Wangenheim (Eddie Izzard), is frightened of Schreck, but then convinces himself that Schreck is simply a very good actor.

'''Slovakia''' . Slovakia is bordered by the Czech Republic and Austria to the west, Poland to the north, Ukraine to the east and Hungary to the south. The largest city is the capital, Bratislava, and the second largest is Košice. Slovakia is a member state of the European Union, Eurozone, Schengen Area, NATO, the United Nations, the OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development) and the WTO (World Trade Organization), among others. The official language is Slovak (Slovak language), a member of the Slavic language family (Slavic languages).

The Slavs—ancestors of the Slovaks—arrived in the territory of present-day Slovakia in the 5th and 6th centuries during the migration period. In the 7th century, Slavs inhabiting this territory played a significant role in the creation of Samo's Empire, historically the first Slavic state which had its center in Western Slovakia. During the 9th century, Slavic ancestors of the Slovaks established another political entity, the Principality of Nitra, which later together with the Principality of Moravia, formed Great Moravia. After the 10th century the territory of today's Slovakia was gradually integrated into the Kingdom of Hungary, which itself became part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire (Austria–Hungary) or Habsburg Empire. After WWI and the dissolution of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, the nation of Slovaks and Czechs established their mutual state - Czechoslovakia. A separate Slovak state (Slovak Republic (1939–1945)) existed during World War II and was a client state of Nazi Germany (from 1939 to 1944). In 1945 Czechoslovakia was reestablished. The present-day Slovakia became an independent state on 1 January 1993 after the peaceful dissolution of Czechoslovakia.
