    The Detail Plot Summary - Nosferatu


    Thomas Hutter (Jonathan Harker in Stoker's novel) is an employee at a real estate firm in a fictitious German city called Wisborg. His employer, Knock, receives a letter from a Count Orlok, who wishes to purchase a house. Knock sends Hutter to visit Orlok in Transylvania to finalize the sale. Hutter entrusts his loving wife Ellen to his good friend Harding and Harding's sister Ruth, before embarking on his long journey.

    Close to his destination, Hutter boards at an inn, where the locals become frightened at the mere mention of Orlok's name, and discourage him from traveling to his castle during the night. In his room, Hutter finds a book, The Book of the Vampires, which he peruses before falling asleep.

    The next day, Hutter's hired driver refuses to cross a bridge into the count's lands. However, he is soon picked up by another coach, which is driven by a strange man who hides his face. He is welcomed at the castle by Count Orlok himself. His grotesque facial features hidden at this stage by his hat, Orlok initially appears to be merely an eccentric gentleman. Hutter has dinner at the castle; Orlok eats nothing and reads a letter. When Hutter cuts his thumb while slicing off a bit of bread, Orlok tries to **** the blood out of the wound, but his repulsed guest pulls his hand away. Hutter then falls asleep in the parlor.

    Hutter wakes up to an empty castle with fresh punctures on his neck, which he attributes to mosquitoes. That night, Orlok signs the documents for the sale of the house across from Hutter's own home. Orlok sees Hutter's cameo portrait of his wife and admires her beautiful neck. Reexamining The Book of the Vampires, Hutter starts to suspect that Orlok is Nosferatu, the "Bird of Death". He cowers in his bedroom as midnight approaches, but there is no way to bar the door. The closed door opens by itself and Orlok enters, his true nature finally revealed. At the same time, Ellen sleepwalks and is found by Harding, screaming for Brinda. Her screams stop Orlok, who leaves Hutter untouched.

    The next day, Hutter explores the castle. In its crypt, he finds the coffin in which Orlok is resting dormant. Horrified, he dashes back to his room. From the window, he sees Orlok piling up coffins on a coach and climbing into the last one before the coach departs. Hutter escapes the castle through the window, but falls unconscious when he reaches the ground. He is found and taken to a hospital. When he is sufficiently recovered, Hutter leaves the hospital to hurry home.

    Meanwhile, the coffins are shipped down river on a raft. They are transferred to a schooner, but not before one is opened by the crew. Inside, they find soil and rats.

    Under the long-distance influence of Orlok, Knock starts behaving oddly and is confined in a psychiatric ward, where he eats flies and tries to bite the neck of his doctor. Later, Knock steals a newspaper, which tells of an outbreak of plague moving down the coast of the Black Sea. Many people are dying, with odd marks on their necks. Knock rejoices.

    The sailors on the ship get sick one by one, and soon all but the captain and first mate are dead. Suspecting the truth, the first mate goes below to destroy the coffins. However, Orlok awakens and the horrified sailor jumps into the sea. Unaware of his danger, the captain ties himself to the ship's wheel and becomes the latest victim.

    The ship arrives in Wisborg. Orlok leaves unseen, carrying one of his coffins. (A passage in The Book of the Vampires reveals that the source of a vampire's power is the soil in which he was buried.) He moves into the house he purchased. The next morning, when the ship is inspected, the captain is found dead. After examining the logbook, the doctors assume they are dealing with the plague. The town is stricken with panic.


    Hutter returns home to his beloved Ellen. She reads The Book of Vampires, despite Hutter's injunction not to, and learns how to kill a vampire: a woman pure in heart must willingly give her blood to him, so that he loses track of time until the cock's first crowing.

    Meanwhile, the town is stricken by many deaths. The townspeople chase Knock, who has escaped after murdering the warden, mistaking him for a vampire.

    Orlok stares from his window at the sleeping Ellen. She opens her window to invite him in, but faints. When Hutter revives her, she sends him for Professor Bulwer. After he leaves, Orlok comes in. He drinks her blood and forgets about the coming day. A rooster crows and Orlok vanishes in a bit of smoke as he tries to flee. Ellen lives just long enough to embrace her grief-stricken husband. The last image of the movie is of Orlok's castle in the Carpathian Mountains.

    Star Wreck: In the Pirkinning - Plot Summary


    Star Wreck: In the Pirkinning is a 2005 motion picture produced by five friends in a two-room flat with a small budget and the support of a few hundred fans and dozens of acquaintances. Star Wreck: In the Pirkinning is the seventh production in the Star Wreck movie series, the first of professional quality and feature length. It is a dark science fiction comedy about domination of the world and the universe, and a parody of the Star Trek and Babylon 5 universes.

    Star Wreck: In the Pirkinning picks up where the previous movie, Star Wreck V: Lost Contact, left off. Captain James B. Pirk (Samuli Torssonen) is stranded with his crew, Commander Dwarf (Timo Vuorensola) and Commander Info (Antti Satama), on turn-of-the-millennium Earth. Life is not good. Dwarf works in a small-time hot-dog stand, and Pirk is stuffing himself with hamburgers, while trying to pick up girls. Info's whereabouts are unknown.

    During their stay on Earth the timeline is wrecked beyond repair, so Pirk decides to take fate into his own hands. Pirk locates the space ship of the Vulgars (a parody of Star Trek's Vulcans), whose first contact mission was corrupted by a hedonistic rock star who took them into his charge, which was sold to Russia, and incites the Russians at the Chanistanya nuclear research facility to a revolution and to build a new ship, the C.P.P. Potkustartti (translated as Kickstart). With the help of the Russians and their President Ulyanov (Kari Väänänen), the P-Fleet is born again, as Pirk's empire. Earth falls quickly under Pirk's rule, but the relatively primitive technology of the new P-Fleet's ships prevent them from expanding the new empire onto other habitable planets.

    By Sergey ***ov's freak encounter with a maggot hole (a parody of a sci-fi staple, the worm hole), Pirk is given a new idea of conquest. Pirk's hunger for power and profound lack of reason drives him through the maggot hole, behind which he finds a parallel universe. In this universe, history has taken a completely different path, leading to Babylon 5-like technology. Hell-bent on conquest, Pirk unwittingly reveals his plans of invading the parallel universe Earth to the commanding officer of the Babel 13 (resembling the Babylon 5 space station), by which he commits himself to a mortal battle with Babel 13's forces.

    The tide of the battle turns with the intervention of relief forces lead by the Excavator, commanded by Festerbester. After a bitter fight, Pirk must flee back into his own universe where he will have his final brush with fate, being once again stranded on Earth, without a ship, during an ice age. There is some controversy over whether they are, as Info suggests, stranded 11,000 years in the past, or if they are actually far in the future beyond hope (as suggested by the appearance of space debris when the camera zooms out from Earth just before the credits).

    Elephants DreamHD



    Plot and explanation

    The movie was made mostly as an experiment, rather than to tell a certain story and therefore has a strong arbitrary and surreal atmosphere. It features two men, Proog (the elder and more experienced) and Emo (the younger and more nervous) living in a miraculous construction referred to only as 'the Machine'; Proog tries to introduce Emo to its nature but the latter is reluctant and argues about its purpose. The creators originally intended for the movie to show the abstraction of a computer.

    The final message is not easy to see due to the abstract nature of the movie and therefore some viewers criticized it as pointless and random, and worthy of attention only if seen as a demo. Other people have widely different interpretations of its meaning. This slashdot comment for example describes the viewpoint that Proog represents the logical half of the brain, while Emo is the creative half. Proog cannot abide imaginative, unpredictable fun in his so carefully crafted and isolated logical world, which is why he tries to dominate Emo and eventually attacks him. Another theory is connected to the theory of evolution, with Proog and the Machine representing multicellular life and DNA, whereas Emo represents a single mitochondrion and cannot grasp the complexity of the Machine.

    Bassam Kurdali, Director of Elephants Dream, explained the plot of the movie by saying:

    "The story is very simple—I'm not sure you can call it a complete story even—It is about how people create ideas/stories/fictions/social realities and communicate them or impose them on others. Thus Proog has created (in his head) the concept of a special place/machine, that he tries to "show" to Emo. When Emo doesn't accept his story, Proog becomes desperate and hits him. It's a parable of human relationships really—You can substitute many ideas (money, religion, social institutions, property) instead of Proog's machine—the story doesn't say that creating ideas is bad, just hints that it is better to share ideas than force them on others. There are lots of little clues/hints about this in the movie—many little things have a meaning—but we're not very "tight" with it, because we are hoping people will have their own ideas about the story, and make a new version of the movie. In this way (and others) we tie the story of the movie with the "open movie" idea."

    The original title was to be Machina but was dropped due to pronunciation issues. One motivation for the title regarding the story was the concept of an Elephant in the room, referring to the (unspoken) fact that Proog's precious world only exists for him.

    Nobody Needs to Know

















    Plot Synopsis

    Young black man about town, "Lamont" (Alvin Seme) pushed by the constant surveillance of his everyday life , discovers the real power is offscreen. At the same time an actress, Iris (Tricia Vessey) refuses to "die" in a casting, which in turn piques the interest of the director (Matt Borum). She returns to her east Village apartment she shares with another actress, "Mira" (Liz Stauber) who is desperate for fame whatever the price. Iris retreats in her room, seemingly setting off a trend of people saying no, one of them being Kurt (Norman Reedus) who disapears from the movie being shot outside her house. As Iris searches for something real, in the city and in herself, Lamont sets off a wave where the real nobodies step out and into control.

    Nobody Needs to Know is a story of Fame and the towns and industries and the people who create it and support it. It's the story of two actresses on divergent paths who unwittingly illustrate the power of Fame and its ability to pursue those who run from it and run from those who pursue it. Aesthetically. it's an alchemy of Nathaniel West's The Day of the Locust, The Shadow radio serial, Ralph Ellison's The Invisible Man, and Juergen Teller's Go-See's mixed and sampled to create a sublime cinematic Paul's Boutique for the Era of the Image and beyond.

    The Stranger






















    War crimes commissioner Wilson (Edward G. Robinson) has a mission to track down the errant Nazi war criminals and bring them to justice. One way is to use Konrad Meinike (Konstantin Shayne) as bait by freeing him and following him to his contacts. Meinike, driven by guilt over his actions during the war has become a Christian. Once free he immediately goes to a small Connecticut town and makes contact with his former Nazi associate Franz Kindler (Orson Welles) who is posing as Professor Charles Rankin. Kindler is hiding out as a teacher with a lovely new wife Mary (Loretta Young). When Meineke arrives in town to appeal to Kindler to give himself up, the professor responds by strangling his old associate and hiding the body in the nearby woods. Kindler believes himself safe because no one has an idea of his former identity. Wilson arrives in town following Meinike, posing as an antiques dealer, and starts sniffing out the dangerous Kindler and a confrontation of wills and cunning ensue.
