Just watched a film made in New Zealand and wanted to share. It’s called, WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS. It begins with a documentary team filming the lives of a group of vampires for a few months. The vampires share a house in Wellington, New Zealand. Turns out vampires have their own domestic problems too. WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS chronicles the adventures of these four vampire roommates trying to get by in a modern world that’s not always hospitable to the undead. Clement and Waititi, creators of the HBO hit series “Flight of the Conchords,” co-wrote, co-directed, and co-star in this hilarious send-up in which an endearingly unhip quartet of friends reveal to us or, rather, to the documentary crew that’s filming them, the details of their daily-make that nightly-routine. Ranging in age from 183 to 8,000, and in appearance from adorably youthful to Nosferatu-crusty, they squabble over household chores, struggle to act in a more modern way, and look for their next victims. It’s funny, weird, but enjoyable.
