Movie: What We Do in the Shadows
Having been a fan of Eagle vs Shark from many years ago, I thought this New Zealand comedy would be similarly enjoyable. It’s a mockumentary, tracing the adventures of a share house of vampires in Wellington. A journey through a lot of vampire / horror tropes, it manages to combine dark humour with the gore of a real horror film.
The trailer gives an insight into the humour of the film, without giving away all the jokes, nor really a sense of how intense the scary moments are, nor how gory it is. If you found something like the blair witch project overwhelming, you’ll want to skip past this one.
If you can get past that, there’s plenty to laugh about.
