What We Do in the Shadows

2014
Dirs. Taika Waititi and Jemaine Clement

A documentary crew follows the bemusing exploits of a group of house-sharing vampires in this charming, oddly heart-warming comedy-horror from New Zealanders Taika Waititi and Jemaine Clement.

From arguing over the cleaning rota and attempting to gain entry to the most hip and happening nightspots, to deciding what should be done about the dead vampire hunter in the basement, the utter banality of the situations the misfits find themselves in, renders their attempts to integrate with the outside world infectiously humorous.

Head over to Exquisite Terror to read my full review.

And remember, "We're werewolves, not swearwolves!"

I want to see this film. I really enjoyed "Eagle vs. Shark" and think I will like this film too.

Nice review James! Loved this. It lived up to the hype. Very funny, and surprisingly bloody, which took me by surprise!

Also, I thought you might get a kick out of these posts over at my joint, as I know that (like me) you're a very visually oriented film viewer :)

I've seen it about three or four times now and each time my love for it just grows. :)

Those images are breathtakingly beautiful. Simply stunning. I need to revisit Under the Skin. Amazing score, too. Thanks for sharing.
