What We Do in the Shadows (2014) Film Review


It must be true that vampires don’t all live in glamorous locations like New Orleans or overcast mountainous towns that allow them to exist during the day (against all known vampire rules). Some probably live in Wellington, New Zealand. And why wouldn’t they become the focus of a documentary?

A camera crew, protected with crucifixes and promises that they won’t be eaten, follow a group of vampires as they go through daily life dealing with problems with flatmates, finding victims and preparing for a ball.

I loved it. I’d been expecting a light comedy with plenty of mentions of vampires and vampiric activity, but I was delighted with some hilariously gruesome scenes. Very silly and totally enjoyable.
