One of the funniest films I've seen this year is the vampire mockumentary What We Do in the Shadows. I saw it at Sundance earlier this year, and it had me busting up laughing from beginning to end. This is a must watch movie for anyone who loves to laugh, and I think most of you will really enjoy it. The first trailer for the movie has been released, and it offers a little taste of the type of comedy that you'll see. Luckily, they don't give away the best parts of the movie.
The story follows a small group of vampires residing in Wellington, New Zealand and how they live their lives. It was written and directed by Taika Waititi and Jemaine Clement. This is the team that brought us the films Boy and Eagle Vs. Shark. The cast includes Clement, Waititi, Jonathon Brugh, Cori Gonzalez-Macuer, Rhys Darby, and Stu Rutherford. Here's the synopsis:
Viago (379 years old), Deacon (183 years old), Vladislav (862 years old), and Peter (8,000 years old) are vampires who have chosen to share a flat in Wellington, New Zealand. Unfortunately for them, it’s hard to make new friends due to their constant thirst for blood. Without any mortal chums left to invite them in to all of the hip establishments around town, they’ve lost touch with the current social scene, but hope to put aside their differences as roommates and adapt to modern society.
