Coming Soon: What We Do In the Shadows

shadows

We’ve had a lot of vampire movies recently, and we’ve had a lot of mockumentary horror movies. So it only makes sense that two comics, Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi, would combine the two into a vampire mockumentary comedy. And thank goodness, their take on the mockumentary is not a found footage movie, but a classic documentary style, complete with doctored historic photographs and a stuffy host. Clement and Waititi love playing with narrative structure, as they did with Flight of the Conchords, so the movie certainly looks like a pretty original comedy. Produced by Funny or Die, What We Do in the Shadows has been praised in film festivals midnight madness circuit for months and it’s been getting high praise as the best comedy of the year.
