What We Do In The Shadows Review

(R)

Directed By: Jemaine Clement, Taika Waititi

Starring: Jemaine Clement, Taika Waititi, Cori Gonzalez-Macuer

This absolutely hilarious movie is set up as a documentary of vampire flat mates. The ridiculous humor mixed with the dark existence of vampires was a comedic breath of fresh air. The characters are all delightfully eccentric and the werewolves were fantastic. Some of the simple special effects in this movie went to further the comedy in the film while never really stealing the spotlight. The story follows some vampires as they try and get along through their silly first world problems that are all given an extra boost of fun through their nature of being undead. Any fans of Flight of The Conchords will be in for a pleasant time seeing a couple of their favorite characters from the show as a vampire and werewolf respectively. I have never seen a movie quite like this one and its originality qualifies it as a must see mockumentary.
