"I'm making Chicken Pilaf tonight," the baker's wife chimes in. "I hope you like it."

"Wonderful, wonderful," the Count says, with a smile, as he pushes her aside into some laundry. Then, opening a closet door by mistake, he walks in. "Christ, where's the goddamn front door?"

"Ach," laughs the baker's wife, "such a funny man, the Count."

"I knew you'd like that," Dracula says, forcing a chuckle, "now get out of my way." At last he opens the front door but time has run out on him.

"Oh, look, mama," says the baker, "the eclipse must be over. The sun is coming out again."

"Right," says Dracula, slamming the front door. "I've decided to stay. Pull down the window shades quickly— quickly! Let's move it!"

"What window shades?" asks the baker.

It is not clear to me that "it" refer to sun or curtains?

But I think "it" refer to Sun and this phrase mean: to not allow the rays of Sun to come home Am I right?

In this example, "it" doesn't refer to anything specifically; rather, the phrase "let's move it!" is an idiom meaning to hurry up. Dracula isn't telling them to move any particular item; he just wants them to be quick!
