What We Do In the Shadows: A Vamp Mockumenatry

Little blip of a post tonight before crashing, stumbled upon this by accident while web surfing, and I really hope it will become available for regular viewing soon. It looks hilarious. 

Okay, background! 

Flatmates Viago, Deacon, and Vladislav are three vampires who are just trying to get by in modern society; from paying rent and sticking to the housework roster to trying to get invited in to nightclubs, they’re just like anyone else – except they’re immortal and must feast on human blood.

When their 8000 year-old flatmate Petyr, turns 20-something human hipster Nick, into a vampire, the guys must teach him the ropes and guide him through his new found eternal life. And in return they are forced to learn a thing or two about modern society, fashions, technology, and the internet. But it’s the introduction of Nick’s human friend, Stu, that really changes the vampire’s lives and attitudes towards the ever-changing world around them.

When Stu’s life is threatened, the vamps show us that maybe humans are worth fighting for, and that even though your heart may be cold and dead, it doesn’t mean you can’t feel anything. -[www.whatwedointheshadows.com]

Sounds like it may be a bit wishy washy at first, I know, but wait there’s more! Firstly a member of Flight of the Concords is in on it, it is made in New Zealand (I believe), and debuted at Sundance this year. On the website laughingsquid.com I found a little blurb about it with a fantastic video. Click here to enjoy the laughs of making fun of vampires, werewolves, and hipsters. Also, here is the main website for the film.
