J. J. Perry is best renowned for his stunt work in films like John Wick: Chapter 2 and F9: The Fate of the Furious. With the high-octane vampire hunter flick Day Shift, Perry will make his directorial debut. Shay Hatten and Tyler Tice, who wrote the Netflix original Army of the Dead, collaborated on the screenplay. Jamie Foxx (Django Unchained), an Academy Award winner, will play the principal character in Day Shift.
Despite this being Perry’s first time directing a film, his significant history in stunt work and martial arts means that audiences can expect an action-packed film that’s stuffed to the gills with real-world effects. Along with executive producers Jamie Foxx and Peter Baxter, producer Chad Stahelski (John Wick), who has previously collaborated frequently with Perry, will also serve as a producer.
This film, according to Jamie Foxx in the inside peek teaser trailer, will have a lot of “eating popcorn moments,” during which the audience will be unable to take their eyes off the screen but will instead continue to stuff their faces with their preferred movie snacks. In this upcoming action-comedy thriller, J. J. Perry is giving the classic vampire legend a fresh spin. Everything you need to know about Day Shift, which will be available on Netflix in August 2022, is provided in this article.

What Is Day Shift About?
In the movie, played by Jamie Foxx, the father works as a pool cleaner in the San Fernando Valley to give his daughter, who is eight, a comfortable life. Or at least that is how it appears at first glance. He actually utilizes the pool cleaning position as a front for his main line of work, which is killing vampires. In essence, he is paid to hunt down vampires and is compensated after obtaining their fangs.

More Movies You Can Watch Before Day Shift Premieres
The film industry moves time swiftly, but not quickly enough for film enthusiasts. To prepare for Day Shift on August 12, have a look at these other films.
The 2011 movie Fright Night, which was directed by Tom Holland (the director, not the most recent Spider-Man), is the ideal companion to Day Shift. It is a remake of the 1985 film of the same name. Starring the late Anton Yelchin (Odd Thomas), Colin Farrell (The Lobster), and Toni Collette, it combines vampire hunting with lighthearted comedy and action (Hereditary). When Charley Brewster (Yelchin) discovers that a new neighbor has moved in next door, his childhood friend Ed (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) implores him to think about the possibility that the new neighbor, Jerry (Farrell), is actually a vampire and accountable for the rise in missing people in the Las Vegas region.
After Ed vanishes, Charley starts to take the situation more seriously and realizes that Ed was correct the entire time. Charley must work with Peter Vincent (David Tennant), a Las Vegas showman with a dubious “expertise” in all things vampire, in order to preserve his loved ones while Jerry tries to lure Amy (Imogen Poots), Charley’s fiancée, and even his mother Jane (Collette).
Amazon, Google Play, and Apple TV all offer Fright Night for rent or purchase.
Van Helsing (2004) is a wet dream for fans of the legendary and iconic cinema monsters like Dracula, Frankenstein’s monster, and the wolf-man. It was directed by Stephen Sommers (The Mummy and The Mummy Returns). Van Helsing, the iconic monster-mercenary of the 1800s, is portrayed by Hugh Jackman (Logan). The Vatican sends Van Helsing and Carl (David Wenham), a Holy Order Franciscan, to investigate after hearing reports of vampire activity in Transylvania. Soon after, he meets Kate Beckinsale’s character Anna Valerious, the last surviving member of an illustrious and long-established Romanian family. The three of them must work together to devise a strategy to stop Dracula (Richard Roxburgh) from raising an army to conquer the world.
This film is delightfully campy and action-packed while maintaining a light-hearted tone throughout, letting viewers to lose themselves in the film’s fantastic score composed by Alan Silvestri (Forrest Gump).
Van Helsing may be watched online on Peacock and can be rented or bought on other streaming services like Amazon or Vudu.
Before seeing Day Shift, you should first watch Blade (1998) and any of the sequels in the Blade trilogy if you haven’t already. Although Blade is not an action-comedy, its premise revolutionized vampire films and was inspired by a superhero of the same name from Marvel Comics. This film, which was directed by Stephen Norrington (The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen), spawned the sequels Blade 2 and Blade: Trinity and will soon be remade with Mahershala Ali (The Green Book) playing the title character.
A vampire attacks a pregnant woman, and the shock of the attack triggers labor. She consequently gives birth to a child, later known as “Blade,” played by Wesley Snipes, a vampire hunter (Dolemite Is My Name). The blade has all of the supernatural abilities of vampires because his mother was bitten just before he was born, but he is resistant to their traditional vulnerabilities, including as sunlight, silver, and garlic. This has earned him the moniker “The Daywalker” among the underground vampire community. He will risk his life if necessary to end vampires once and for all.
Day Shift, which will be available on Netflix on August 12, 2022, is destined to become an instant classic in the vampire-hunter movie genre. Prepare yourself for the next big thing in Netflix’s newest vampire-slaying experience by stocking up on your silver and garlic.
