What We Do In The Shadows
10:15pm - Monday, Oct 25, 2021
From the writing-directing team of Jemaine Clement (FLIGHT OF THE CONCHORDS) and Taika Waititi (JOJO RABBIT, HUNT FOR THE WILDERPEOPLE, THOR: Ragnarok) comes a bloody high-larious tale in which an endearingly un-hip quartet of kiwi vampire 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 keep up with the latest trends in technology and fashion, antagonize the local werewolves, cruise clubs for lovely ladies, and deal with the rigors of living on a very, very strict diet. Also starring Rhys Darby, Jonathan Brugh, Cori Gonzalez-Macuer, Stu Rutherford, and Jackie Van Beek.
“Here it is at long last: a truly great vampire comedy. And also the funniest horror film to come out of New Zealand since Braindead.” (Empire Magazine)

WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS (Jemaine Clement & Taika Waititi, 2015 / 86 mins / 14A) Follow the lives of Viago, Deacon, and Vladislav – 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.
