Nosferatu in Love is a tragicomic single drama written and directed by Bafta-winning Peter Straughan (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Frank, Wolf Hall) and starring Mark Strong (Kingsman, Sherlock Holmes) for Sky Arts.

The film, which premièred on Sky in May 2014, was shot in Czech Republic receiving the support of the Czech State Cinematography Fund. It went on to win numerous awards including best film at LA Shorts Fest and Raindance Festival.

The film follows a tormented actor (Strong) playing Nosferatu in a film. While struggling with his inner demons, he finds out his young wife is leaving him, leading him to rebel against his director and escape to a nearby Czech village. Here, he teams up with a local petty crook, with unexpected, absurdist consequences. Loss and failure transform into a redemption of sorts for the two of them.
