What We Do in the Shadows (2014)


Viago, Deacon, and Vladislav are vampires who are finding that modern life has them struggling with the mundane – like paying rent, keeping up with the chore wheel, trying to get into nightclubs, and overcoming flatmate conflicts. (IMDb)
The perfectly deadpan doc-style delivery is delightful as it presents with wonderful wit and mirthfully morbid frankness mundane expositions on the typical vampire lore, from watching sunrises on Youtube to debating over who has to clean the bloody dishes. Many clever mini-storylines (newbie Nick’s integration into the group is one highlight) and hilarious characters (see the never-fazed software programmer Stu and the pack of rational werewolves) add even further humour to this great premise.
8/10 (Great)
