What We Do In the Shadows

Three vampires navigate modern society while mentoring a new undead roommate.


Why watch this film?

Hilarious mockumentary-style movie depicting the lives of some vampires in modern-day New Zealand. A pleasant surprise, which catapulted Taika Waititi from his previously sparse roles in the US to being the new darling director of Marvel Studios.

Plot summary

Housemates Viago, Deacon, and Vladislav are three vampires who are trying to get by in modern society; from paying rent and doing housework to trying to get invited into nightclubs, they’re just like anyone else - except they’re immortal and must feast on human blood. When their 8000 year-old roommate Petyr, turns 20-something human hipster 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 society, fashion, technology, and the internet.
