New Trailer for Vampire Mockumentary 'What We Do in the Shadows'

Courtesy Facebook
Another vampire film? Yes, but this looks fresh and hilarious. "What We Do in the Shadows" is brought to you by Kiwis, Jemaine Clement ("Flight of the Conchords") and Taika Waititi ("Eagle vs. Shark") and we're now getting a first look at this Sundance choice.

This mockumentary follows the trials and tribulations of three vamp flatmates living in Wellington. They're followed around by a documentary crew, and we see first hand what vampire life is like behind the scenes. For example, their struggles getting invited into clubs and trying not to eat the camera crew. We also learn the obvious, "When you're a vampire, you become very sexy." Even if you don't like this genre, the trailer will amuse you so give it a watch (after the jump). There's no release date mentioned but we hope it's soon...it's not like we're going to live forever!

Here is the official description via their Facebook page:

Flatmates Viago, Deacon, and Vladislav are three vampires who are just trying to get by in modern society; from paying rent and sticking to the housework roster to trying to get invited in to nightclubs, they’re just like anyone else - except they’re immortal and must feast on human blood.

When their 8000 year-old flatmate Petyr, turns 20-something human hipster Nick, into a vampire, the guys must teach him the ropes and guide him through his new found eternal life. And in return they are forced to learn a thing or two about modern society, fashions, technology, and the internet. But it’s the introduction of Nick’s human friend, Stu, that really changes the vampire’s lives and attitudes towards the ever-changing world around them.

When Stu’s life is threatened, the vamps show us that maybe humans are worth fighting for, and that even though your heart may be cold and dead, it doesn’t mean you can’t feel anything.
