A Professor, dedicated to the belief that supernatural beings such as vampires and werewolves do not exist, has been re-elected chairman of a local committee dedicated to proving this to the masses. But that night he finds a visitor inexplicably in his study, who claims to be the 400 year old son of Nostradamus the Alchemist and demands that he be acknowledged publicly as such so that he may rebuild his father's cult. When the Professor refuses, Nostradamus, as he also calls himself, proceeds to predict the death next day of an admirer of the Professor's work; and the man indeed dies - buried alive while in a death-like paralysis, as the Professor later discovers. Meanwhile, Nostradamus withstands six point-blank bullets fired by the Professor, then becomes a bat and flies away. But though convinced of Nostradamus' power, the Professor refuses to make public acknowledgment, lest society crumbles, and sets about finding a way to destroy Nostradamus, his sole confidant being Antonio, fiance to his daughter Anna. The first of 4 movies based on the Mexican film The Curse of Nostradamus (1959)

As the 20th century evolved, rational man turned to science to explain mythology that had pervaded for thousands of years. How could a man be mistaken for a vampire? How could someone appear to have been the victim of a vampire attack? Science, in time, came back with answers that may surprise you.Anemia
A million fancies strike you when you hear the name: Nosferatu!N O S F E R A T Udoes not die!What do you expect of the first showing of this great work?Aren't you afraid? - Men must die. But legend has it that a vampire, Nosferatu, 'der Untote' (the Undead), lives on men's blood! You want to see a symphony of horror? You may expect more. Be careful. Nosferatu is not just fun, not something to be taken lightly. Once more: beware.- Publicity for Nosferatu in the German magazine Buhne und Film, 1922
