What We Do In The Shadows is to the undead as what Spinal Tap did to music documentaries. From the creators of Flight of the Conchords. Filmed in a similar style as Spinal Tap as well as “hidden camera pranks”.
On the other hand, all the clichés that you would expect to have in a vampire movie are there. From not casting a reflection, having to be invited in, to flying around. This time flying helps them to keep the flat tidy. It’s a good way to clean the hard to reach areas, such as the top of the wardrobe.
Not only do we get the trailer but a poster that basically says It’s Hillarious
It does look good, in parts. What I don’t like in the trailer is the clips of the vampires trying to get into clubs. It just looks painful but not in a funny sort of way. If I had seen any of the Flight of the Conchords I may have a different view of the film as it’s probably just the same sort of humour but swapping a musical band to a band of vampires.
Viago, Deacon, and Vladislav are three vampires living together and trying to cope with modern life; from paying rent, doing housework, and trying to get into nightclubs, they’re perfectly normal – except for their immortality, fangs, and thirst for human blood. When their 8000 year-old housemate, Petyr, turns 20-something Nick into a vampire, the guys must guide him through his newfound eternal life. In return, they are forced to learn a thing or two about modern life.
