It's all too rare that vampires get to be funny. Thankfully, we have What We Do In The Shadows to fill that void.

What We Do in the Shadows is comedy brilliance from start to finish, thanks to its superb performances - the entire cast are experts in comic timing and delivery...

A Christopher Guest-styled mockumentary about vampires sounds only a little less obvious and opportunistic than a "found-footage" feature about vampires, yet Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi have managed to create a savvy satire that works beautifully.

Just when you thought mockumentary and vampire movies had played themselves out along comes What We Do in the Shadows, a vampire mockumentary that feels fresh and funny.

The execution could use some refining, but the comedy elements are surely sound.

An endlessly entertaining mockumentary about an illusive household of vampire roommates. Time for first watch if you've not seen it already...

It is a perfectly good piffle of a film.

What We Do in the Shadows is a flat-out hilarious comedy...simultaneously droll and goofy...one of the funniest comedies of the year.

I know vampires may have overstayed their welcome in pop culture at the moment, but trust me when I say this one deserves your attention.

Despite the simple structure - and a crack at every obvious vampire gag in the book - the film remains highly amusing from beginning to end.

Impressively inventive, and filled end to end with remarkably committed performances from some very funny actors and actresses, What We Do in the Shadows is the best movie I've seen so far this year, and the funniest I've seen in ages.

Clement, Waititi, and Brugh clearly love getting to turn into bats and battling werewolves almost as much as they love poking fun at the absurdity of it all. Their low-key enthusiasm is infectious.

Overall, What We Do In The Shadows not only sets the standard for a great vampire comedy, but also as a great comedy for 2014.

What We Do In The Shadows is a remarkably assured debut.

What We Do in the Shadows does more than just erase the crap path these immortal suckers were on, it proves there are still stories to be told in the dark.

The performances are all winningly guileless, but the true surprise of the film is how realized their world is.

Like Shaun of the Dead before it, this film respects the lore of its subject matter even while skewering it.

Cute, and affectionately droll as it mines through the plentiful amount of vampire stereotypes, Clement and Waititi expertly command the film's comedic balance, though it often doesn't exceed the limitations of its genre.

After so many reality TV shows about the rich and famous, here's a much more entertaining time with the truly stylish who just happen to be immortal.

One of the best films of 2014.
