Shooting films can sometimes be a real adventure. For instance, if you decide to do a documentary about vampires, it’s a good idea to get them to promise not to suck your blood. And for good measure, keep a cross hanging around your neck. Viago, Deacon and Vladislav live quietly in an old house. Vegetating in the basement is Petyr, who has seen better days, to put it mildly. Some of them are pushing 400, but they have the morals and moodiness of teenagers. They are also bothered by the fact that nobody will invite them into nightclubs. But maybe their new friend Stu can help – a person they decide to leave human. Taking its cues from the history of vampire legends and driven by unlimited fantasy, the film humorously adapts the centuries-old rules of vampiric life to the present day and entertains with equal doses of sitcom humor and tongue-in-cheek cultural references. Drinking blood sometimes gets messy, but over the centuries it has lost none of its appeal.
