For a bit of Bank Holiday fun, we thought we’d bring you the trailer for What We Do in the Shadows…
What we do in the Shadows is an 86-minute mockumentary comedy about New Zealand vampires, co-written, co-directed, and co-starring Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi.
Flatmates Viago, Deacon, and Vladislav are three vampires who are just trying to get by in modern
society; from paying rent and doing housework to trying to get invited in to nightclubs, they’re just like anyone else – except they’re immortal and must feast on human blood.
When their 8000 year-old room-mate Petyr, turns 20-something human hipster Nick, into a vampire, the guys must show him the ropes and guide him through his newfound eternal life. And in return they are forced to learn a thing or two about modern society, fashions, technology, and the internet. But it’s the introduction of Nick’s human friend, Stu, that really changes the vampire’s lives and attitudes towards the ever-changing world around them.
When Stu’s life is threatened, the vamps show us that maybe humans are worth fighting for, and that
even though your heart may be cold and dead, it doesn’t mean you have no feelings.
