Spinal Tap Vampires

What We Do In The Shadows is to the undead as what Spinal Tap did to music documentaries. From the creators of Flight of the Conchords. Filmed in a similar style as Spinal Tap as well as “hidden camera pranks”.

On the other hand, all the clichés that you would expect to have in a vampire movie are there. From not casting a reflection, having to be invited in, to flying around. This time flying helps them to keep the flat tidy. It’s a good way to clean the hard to reach areas, such as the top of the wardrobe.

Not only do we get the trailer but a poster that basically says It’s Hillarious

It does look good, in parts. What I don’t like in the trailer is the clips of the vampires trying to get into clubs. It just looks painful but not in a funny sort of way. If I had seen any of the Flight of the Conchords I may have a different view of the film as it’s probably just the same sort of humour but swapping a musical band to a band of vampires.

Viago, Deacon, and Vladislav are three vampires living together and trying to cope with modern life; from paying rent, doing housework, and trying to get into nightclubs, they’re perfectly normal – except for their immortality, fangs, and thirst for human blood. When their 8000 year-old housemate, Petyr, turns 20-something Nick into a vampire, the guys must guide him through his newfound eternal life. In return, they are forced to learn a thing or two about modern life.
