What We Do in the Shadows is a 2014 New Zealand mockumentary horror comedy film about a group of vampires who live together in Wellington written, directed by, and starring Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi. It premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January 2014.The film was theatrically released on August 18, 2014 by Madman Entertainment. The film earned $6.9 million on a $1.6 million budget.
A very Kiwi low-key film that has some charm, but feels like a series of sketches put together to foam a short film (about 80 minutes). No laugh out loud moments, but Jermaine Clement is always entertaining to watch.
