Directors Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi have been working the film festivals with new vampire comedy film What We Do in the Shadows (2014). We have already seen the trailer which promises the movie to be hilarious but this new movie still features a very scary looking vampire too. Starring in What We Do in the Shadows are Jemaine Clement, Taika Waititi and Jonathan Brugh.
Synopsis: Diving deep into the throes of vampire life in New Zealand, What We Do In The Shadows introduces us to age-old vampire flatmates Vladislav (862 years old, played by Clement) Viago (379 years old, played by Waititi), Deacon (183 years old) and Petyr (8,000 years old). Stuck in their antiquated ways, they struggle to adjust to 21st century customs, like paying rent, sharing household chores and getting expressly invited into nightclubs. Enter 20-something hipster Nick, who Petyr turns to get an inside education on the modern world. What follows includes a whole lot of discovery: from fashion to technology and even a little feeling--all laced in continuous hilarity, of course.
Directed by Jemaine Clement, Taika Waititi
Official Synopsis: Follow the lives of Viago (Taika Waititi), Deacon (Jonathan Brugh), and Vladislav (Jemaine Clement) - three flatmates who are just trying to get by and overcome life's obstacles-like being immortal vampires who must feast on human blood. Hundreds of years old, the vampires are finding that beyond sunlight catastrophes, hitting the main artery, and not being able to get a sense of their wardrobe without a reflection-modern society has them struggling with the mundane like paying rent, keeping up with the chore wheel, trying to get into nightclubs, and overcoming flatmate conflicts.
