Gently amusing with some charming characters, but maybe would have worked better as a six minute sketch.

Sitcom


Die Vampir Mitbewohner dieser Vampir WG Mockumentary scheinen Gewohnheits-Tiere sein, in Wahrheit sind sie aber einfach nur sehr langsam. Beim Versuch, etwas auf ebay zu ersteigern ("do my dark bidding"), müssen sie sich ganz auf ihre beschränkte Intelligenz und menschliche Bedienstete verlassen. Deshalb ists auch nur folgerichtig, dass sie nun in einer "Real Life" Sitcom mitspielen. Die Hauptpersonen kommen definitiv nicht aus unserem Jahrhundert: Ihre Art zu gehen, ihr harter Akkzent, ihr Kleidungsstil sind nicht von dieser Welt - und daraus resultieren die meisten der Gags, welche die Neuseeländer Regisseure/Schauspieler Jemaine Clement und Taika Waititi hier vorführen. What We Do In The Shadows ist ein kluges und schön gemachtes B-Movie! Wir erleben die sozialen ...

Clever Drawn Out Sketch Movie

Basically, it's the 'Spinal Tap' method done with vampires. This is a very clever little film. The whole approach is like a nonchalant reality show version of vampires. We see four of them share a space and go about living day-to-day. Much thought went into the gags. They incorporate lots of vampire lore seamlessly into the casual setting without having to waste time on explanations. Each of the vamps are distinctly different in look and personality. Werewolves and zombies even show up. Even though this is a short and less filling endeavor, it still dragged on a bit for me. The feeling of this whole piece being one elongated sketch grew more and more as the film progressed. Luckily, it ended about the time I'd had enough. It's the main flaw keeping this smart comedy from really...

Spinal Tap meets Real World if they were Vampires

You've probably heard very little noise made about this Vampire Spoof/Parody/Mockumentary in the "Spinal Tap" mold. Starring one half of the "Flight of the Concords" who with 3 other Vampires all room together in an old Mansion ala the reality show "The Real World". It also has a roaming pack of Werewolves led by the always amusing and underrated Rhys Darby who was the Bands Manager from "Flight of the Concords". The entire Cast as well as the constantly funny script make this giddy gem the best Vampire Spoof that I've ever seen. Although there has yet to be a Grand list of this type. Love at first Bite, Dead and Loving it and Buffy the Vampire Slayer come to mind but pale in comparison. Shadows starts out with an abundance of laughs even before the opening credits start to roll as...
