The Shadows

"What We Do in the Shadows" is an especially bloody valentine to "Interview with the Vampire" – both the 1976 novel by Anne Rice and Neil Jordan's 1994 film adaptation. Among the many tributes, Guillermo can be seen in Armand's cosplay during the show's opening credits.

Of all the characters, eternal newlyweds Nadja and Laszlo have the most closely aligned fashion sense, with their costumes and accessories frequently matching throughout the series. These details include matching gold brocade fabric, red highlights, and the giant black lace collars from the pilot episode.

Matching Wardrobes
Some of the show’s best celebrity cameos have come from performers paying homage to their previous vampire roles. Each actor is styled to resemble their original role, for example, Tilda Swinton sports the long white hair of her character Eve from "Only Lovers Left Alive."
Method Actors
Cast members from the original film have had a hand in the TV spinoff; Taika Waititi directed three episodes, Jemaine Clement served as showrunner and writer, and Waititi, Clement, and Jonny Burgh reprised their film roles on the show. There is also a charming Easter egg from the film that can be seen hanging on the wall; a portrait of Viago, Vladislav, and Deacon.
Roommates Remembered
While Season 4 explores Colin Robinson's unusual new childhood, something strange about him that has been seen but never directly addressed, is his reflection. While the traditional vamps can't be seen in mirrors, Colin can, though his reflection appears pale and mottled, with blue veins.
