The brilliant mockumentary, What we Do in the Shadows, takes “dry humour” to the next level.
Vladislav, Viago, Deacon and Petyr are relic vampires living in a vampire nest… ehrrmmm… as modern day roommates.
The four deal with issues like, who’s responsibility is it to do the dishes? How will we pay rent? And where will we hide the bodies of these people we just sucked dry?
It’s an unreal dichotomy of “totally over the top” and “cracklingly dry” humour.
You’ll recognize Jemaine Clement from Flight of the Concords and MIB3. He kills it as Vladislav, and over the top vamp stuck in his old horror ways. Taika Waititi steals the show as Viago trying to mediate between roommates, and appease the ancient Petyr. (Jemaine and Taika also wrote and directed, in case you weren’t yet sold).
This flick is totally original and so much fun.
Loved it? Great news!! Recent rumour has it there is going to be a werewolf sequel.
Great if you liked: Flight of the Concords, This is Spinal Tap, The Office
