Personally, I absolutely loved HBO’s The Flight of the Conchords. That dry, witty sense of humor was perfectly in line with the kinds of comedies that I dig. With that said, it’s safe to say I was over the moon when it was announced that the team behind the hit show was making a “mockumentary” having to do with a dysfunctional group of vampires, all living in the same house.
The official trailer for the film has dropped and judging from everything in it, WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS looks like one hilarious send up of vampires and the everyday (or night) hardships they face..I mean c’mon, not knowing what you look like must be difficult, right? There are quite a few familiar Conchords faces in the film, and it looks like a completely dry and hilarious time. I’ll be first in line to catch it when it hits theaters on February 13th via Unison Films and Paladin.
“WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS chronicles the adventures of four vampire roommates trying to get by in a modern world that’s not always hospitable to the undead. Clement and Waititi, creators of the HBO hit series “Flight of the Conchords,” co-wrote, co-directed, and co-star in this hilarious send-up in which an endearingly unhip quartet of friends reveal to us or, rather, to the documentary crew that’s filming them, the details of their daily-make that nightly-routine. Ranging in age from 183 to 8,000, and in appearance from adorably youthful to Nosferatu-crusty, they squabble over household chores, struggle to keep up with the latest trends in technology and fashion, antagonize the local werewolves, cruise clubs for lovely ladies, and deal with the rigors of living on a very, very strict diet. The film also stars Rhys Darby, Jonathan Brugh, Cori Gonzalez-Macuer, Stu Rutherford, and Jackie Van Beek, and was produced by Waititi, Chelsea Winstanley and Emanuel Michael.”
