> The video document of the life of the vampires.
A documentary style horror comedy based on the short film of the same name by the same directors. I would say it is an interview with the vampires in the Kiwi style. The film follows a group of vampires living in an old mansion and their everyday routine, including how they manage to get blood and confrontation with other mutants are documented.
Definitely a wonderful comedy, but feels like a mix of ‘Dark Shadows’ and ‘Addams Family’. The title implies the nightlife of these creatures, especially adapting the modern way of lifestyle. So their exploration begins here for their video document. Being different is how much struggle is what the film focused. Threats from various quarters and getting over from every disastrous event is revealed.
Quite an interesting vampire film with the awesome characters and of course the entire film was shot in the dark time. It is not a cliché, but just a spoof of the typical vampire theme. Cleverly written screenplay and direction with the well supported performances. Looks like many people had loved it, I’m slightly on the different side that I enjoyed watching it but did not like much. Because I have seen better film in the similar concept. So I still recommend it because it is worth a watch.
‘What We Do In The Shadows’ is an hilarious mockumentary film by the makers of ‘Flight of the Conchords’. The movie is filed with brilliant homages and references to vampire films such as ‘The Lost Boys’, ‘Twilight’ and ‘Let The Right One In’.
The directorial style is very similar to the hit TV show ‘The Office’ as it is able to create humour in the realism and personal interviews and monologues. This method also allows it to be genuinely scary at times such as when we meet the housemate inspired by ‘Nosferatu’. The extreme and realistic gore also comes across as very brutal and juxtaposes the silly gags.
The actors are all very good. Dead pan. Great delivery.
Looking at vampires through new eyes
Taika Waititi and Jemaine Clement seem to understand misfits. Waititi explored them in his first two films, Eagle vs Shark and Boy, and Clement’s partnership with Bret McKenzie as Flight of the Conchords was an object lesson in not fitting in. Their early works were loved both here and abroad. Between them, Waititi and Clement have been nominated at the Grammys, the Emmys and the Oscars, hardly a pedigree to be sniffed at. I guess the domestic appeal of this is born of New Zealand being a strange little country down the bottom of the world, whose national bird doesn’t fly, who dared stand up to the Americans and say “No Nukes”, and which has been the backdrop for some of the hugest blockbusters of recent years. We’re proud of our strangeness. The international appeal is perhaps due in part to the same thing, our unique individuality. I guess, coming from a pair of inveterate misfits, What We Do in the Shadows, an exploration of vampires who live among humans, but are intrinsically not living humans themselves, is a natural growth of themes already explored. As this film explores vampire tropes with fresh eyes, it gives, as well, a poignant look at the value of exploring past beliefs, hurts, losses and prejudices anew and seeing what can grow. As each of us age, it becomes easier to get stuck in our ways, how much more so for vampires whose age is counted not in decades but centuries. For Viago, Vladislav, Deacon, and Petyr there are many challenges. Viago faces the classic immortal’s dilemma; his beloved growing old without him. Vladislav has a beast from the past which could rear its head again. Deacon faces the challenge of meeting a new generation and realising his own youth is slipping away. Petyr is growing ever more ancient, and is working to create a legacy. From these challenges come a fresh look at relationships between old enemies, at the cost of indiscretion, at unfulfilled promises and at the need to sometimes sacrifice your own desires out of genuine affection for another. This is a quirky film, slightly disjointed in places. But it delights in its lo-fi quirk right from the very 1970’s looking “New Zealand Documentary Board” credit at the beginning. There’s plenty of laughs to be had. It won’t be everyone’s cup of tea, it might be hard for some to follow, but there’s entertainment to be found here for all. And now to the reviewer’s bias. My grandmother, with whom I attended the Wellington première. Ethel Robinson assured me leading up to the movie that hers would be a very small part. It was, but it was a very necessary component part. And she filled it admirably, as did each of the performers in this piece. From the puzzled police, the frustrated familiar, the affable alpha-wolf, all the way to the venerable vampires themselves, no-one seemed out of place in this gentle comedy. Though it is about the undead, you can feel the warm heart beating below the surface of What we do in the Shadows, a film which will leave you thinking about vampires, and maybe about the world too, in a new way.
“You will forget the contents of this movie . . .”
. . . one of this Mockumentary’s cast members pretend-hypnotizes the audience in WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS’ post-credits last line. If only we could. Forget. This flick’s trailer contains ALL of SHADOWS’ few humorous moments, so this feature itself becomes an exercise in tedium that makes the viewers feel 8,000 years old, like vampire Peter. Few movie-goers will manage to stay awake throughout this snooze-test, unless they have brought along a “familiar” to keep them occupied in the movie theater’s shadows. SHADOWS comes from New Zealand. If you thought that THE LORD OF THE RINGS and THE HOBBIT were a hoot, then you might bust a gut watching SHADOWS. But if you expect this entire show to build upon its trailer in a clever way, you most likely will be disappointed. Ask yourself: When a White male vampire says his outfit for the annual Witches, Zombies, and Vampires Masquerade Ball was “Whoopi Goldberg in her SISTER ACTs habit,” is it any more “hilarious” than a Sooner fraternity Kegger chant?
