Directors Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi (who also star in the film) parody the vampire genre in this clever mockumentary piece, What we do in the Shadows. It’s not an easy thing to do, just take 2010 film Vampires Suck- it’s just the ticket to see an example of a failed vampire parody.
What we do in the Shadows runs with its rather simple premise to mock the over- popularised vampire film to the fullest extent, succeeding in every aspect to deliver a truly enjoyable film. As we meander through the lives of four vampire flat mates some could say that the films pace is, well, rather slow; however this perfectly fits with the humor as we watch the everyday antics that occur when living with other people- only vampire style. Even the poorly delivered accents only add to the charm of this film and ultimately I was laughing out loud more than once.
An instant crowd-pleaser.
