WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS

We all know one share house that's a little different from the rest - whether it’s full of musty second-hand furniture, a complete lack of cleanliness, a recycling bin constantly filled with beer bottles, or "that" roommate. 'What We Do In The Shadows' takes that concept and throws vampires into the mix, leading to some very interesting living (or after-living?) situations.

Welcome to the world of Viago, Vladislav and Deacon (Taika Waititi, Jemaine Clement and Jonathan Brugh, respectively). They are just your average group of guys - well, almost regular - they are all centuries-old vampires and in death are living as large as they can... well, as large as they can in the New Zealand city of Wellington. The documentary-style film follows the trio through their night to nights, including the inclusion of the newly turned member of the group, Nick (Cori Gonzalez-Macuer). The household go clubbing together, throw dinner parties and learn about the modern world through their newest housemate and his best friend, the human Stu (Stuart Rutherford).

SWITCH: 'WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS' TRAILER

This is the kind of quirky comedy that New Zealand is becoming well-known for. It’s charming and hilarious and brilliantly acted by every single member of the fantastic ensemble cast. The writing is organic and full of wit and wordplay, working in perfect harmony with the documentary style the movie has been shot in. A standout is Rhys Darby and his pack of werewolves, who are practically sensitive new age guys. While only making a few appearances, they provide highlights throughout the film and further the Vampire verses Werewolf cannon.

It's hard to describe how genuinely enjoyable this movie is. It's the kind of film that will put a smile on your face, no matter what mood you're in. ‘What We Do In The Shadows’ is a comedy that should put New Zealand on the map, with a share house everyone will want to spend some time in.
