Review by Ben on 8th December, 2014

Brilliantly realised, from start to finish, with well timed humour throughout. Judicious use of visual effects enhanced the film without detracting from the experience, and the acting is delightful. But then, I would say that, wouldn't I-

Review by Graeme on 23rd January, 2015

Lots of laugh out loud, the quintessential NZ flick, worthy of its status among the greats.

Review by Louise on 30th November, 2014

This is a must see. Funny from start to finish. I saw it on the big screen and jumped at the chance to buy this DVD on it's first day of release. Had to watch it again. Highly recommend!

"Awful...not a smile in the short time I watched this."

Review by Glenis on 13th November, 2016

Not funny movie, with an introduction that needed a lot of help to get this viewer interested. Hoped for side splitting comedy not seen, must be self cost production with no assistance from anyone who has produced a comedy with ‘finish’, Good luck in the future!


What We Do in the Shadows is a 2014 New Zealand horror comedy mockumentary film on DVD, directed by Taika Waititi.

Flatmates Viago (Taika Waititi), Deacon (Jonny Brugh), and Vladislav (Jemaine Clement) are three vampires who are just trying to get by in modern society; from paying rent and sticking to the housework roster to trying to get invited in to nightclubs, they’re just like anyone else – except they’re immortal and must feast on human blood.

When their 8000 year-old flatmate, Petyr, turns 20-something human hipster, Nick, into a vampire, the guys must teach him the ropes and guide him through his new found eternal life. And in return they are forced to learn a thing or two about modern society, fashions and technology. But it’s the introduction of Nick’s human friend, Stu, that really changes the vampire’s lives and attitudes towards the ever-changing world around them.

When Stu’s life is threatened, the vamps show us that maybe humans are worth fighting for, and that even though your heart may be cold and dead, it doesn’t mean you can’t feel anything.
