"When you're a vampire you become very... sexy."
Word of mouth for the upcoming mockumentary What We Do in the Shadows has been pretty stellar, and any doubts I had about the film are dead and gone after seeing this hilarious trailer.
The film presents a fresh stake on the vampire genre. It has all the trappings and tropes of a bachelor-pad reality TV show, but instead of booze your stars will be vomiting blood after a night at the club, if they can even get into the club, that is...
"The problem with being a vampire is you have to be invited in."
Jemaine Clement (Flight of the Concords) stars in the film and he and Taika Waititi (Eagle vs. Shark) wrote and directed it. So, you can expect them to bleed the premise dry of every possible vampire joke; which, if the rest of the film is as hilarious as this trailer, is perfectly fine by me.
What We Do in the Shadows premiered at Sundance in January 2014, a wider release date is TBA.
