What We Do in the Shadows is directed and written by Taika Waititi and Jemaine Clement, who also star in the film. It premiered at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival and is an absolutely hilarious New Zealand made horror comedy mockumentary film which will keep its audience laughing the whole way through. The film is about a group of vampires, from various centuries, all renting a house together.

Flat mates Viago, Deacon, Vladislav and 8000 year-old Petyr, live in Wellington, New Zealand and are just trying to get by in a modern world, paying their rent, getting their household chores done and trying to get invited into nightclubs, just the usual every day things…
Except for the fact that they need to stay out of the sunlight and feast of human blood to survive.

When Petyr makes the totally uncool decision to turn a local annoying hipster, by the name of Nick, into a vampire, their lives are turned around and they are brought up to speed with technology by Nick's human friend Stu, who everybody loves.

The group encounter werewolves, who pride themselves on not being swearwolves, zombies, who don't want to just be brainless stereotypes and the infamous beast, during the documentation of their day to day lives.



What We Do in the Shadows, is a must see for any fans of horror, particularly the classic and cult horror films of the past and remember to stick around till the end of the credits!

Rated M for a mature audience for Horror themes, Violence, Sexual References and Course Language.

10/10
