About 125 hours of footage was shot, most of which was improvisation from the cast. The process of editing that down to a 90-minute movie took almost a year. See more »
At the beginning of the movie, Vladislav says Viago was an 18th century dandy before becoming a vampire. If Viago was 379 years old in 2013, that means he was born in 1634, more than a century before the appearance of dandies. See more »
I went in the lounge the other day and there was blood all over my nice antique couch.

There is a brief "hypnotic" session at the very end of the credits. See more »
you'll probably love this- it follows the mockumentary format excellently but ups the ante because its following a cast of actual (in the worldof the movie) vampires. (oh and some werewolves make a hilarious cameo.). But within the conceit of being a mockumentary its played totally straight.
The few special effects scenes are really well done for the budget and all the more powerful because they knew to do it sparingly.
