Vampires. If they lived in our modern times, how would they cope? Would they be shining beacons of lush beauty, like Twilight? Or would they lead mundane lives, dealing with rent and housemates? Living with a vampire would be mega lols, no? According to this weekend's watch, What We Do In The Shadows, it would be HILARIOUS.
Some interviews with some vampires.
Viago (Taika Waititi), Deacon (Jonny Brugh) and Vladislav (Jemaine Clement) are flatmates and vampires living in Wellington, New Zealand. They have given a film crew unprecedented access to follow their daily (un-)lives and the challenges they face being centuries old undead in a modern world. Rent, getting into nightclubs and avoiding suspicious police are just a few things. Other major obstacles are handling their freshest prey-turned vampire, Nick (Cori Gonzalez-Macuer) who is coming to grips with his new life, a pack of werewolves (their arch enemies), and the announcement of the guest of honor at the upcoming Unholy Masquerade; a ball held for all members of the undead - vampires, zombies and witches. How will it all play out?
Given the title of 'hilarious' by a slew of reputable press, this film is truly unique and the actors are brilliant! From the makers of Flight Of The Conchords, we hope you enjoy this weekend's watch.
