Shadows1

 

What We Do in the Shadows is a mockumentary following 4 vampire roommates in the months leading up to the Unholy Masquerade Ball for all undead.  The roommates, Peter, Viago, Vladislav, and Deacon, roam the streets of Wellington, New Zealand, looking to be invited into night clubs to find their next victims.  Along the way, Nick gets turned, and we experience his transition into vampirehood.  He brings along his best friend, Stu, who everyone agrees not to kill because he introduces them to the internet.  They work hard to protect him throughout the film, even at the ball, and Stu ends up killing another vampire in defense of himself.  Unfortunately, a pack of werewolves weren’t in on the agreement and Stu turns into the vampire’s arch enemy.

Normally, mockumentaries are overdone for me.  There’s too many long pauses and too much looking at the camera with meaningful eyes.  What We Do in the Shadows doesn’t do this.  In fact, it’s breathed life back into a genre threatened to be fangirled to death.  Their creative take on Real World meets 2015 satire had me wiping my eyes from laugh crying.

Now, that being said, it is a mockumentary and by definition those are meant to be over the top.  WWDITS is over the top.  But the hilarity and the fact that the vampires aren’t the sparkling kind, make it worth the price of admission.  Each vampire’s personality is showcased along with the trials and real dangers of vampire life.  It’s not all parties and orgies for his bunch.  The nitty gritty of real vampire life.

There’s rivalries, true love, ancient grudges, finding oneself, and roommate relations.  See it, see it, see it.
