MOVIES and MANIA mini review and rating:

Nosferatu.com is a typical by-the-numbers found-footage film with nothing new to offer except a minor diversion halfway to break up the formula. The characters are slightly more agreeable than those often found in such efforts and at least there is an attempt to rack up the action at the climax. Plus, the running time is mercifully short.
