Despite the simple structure - and a crack at every obvious vampire gag in the book - the film remains highly amusing from beginning to end.
April 10, 2020
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.
November 19, 2019
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.
September 25, 2019
What We Do In The Shadows is a remarkably assured debut.
July 30, 2019
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.
July 24, 2019
The performances are all winningly guileless, but the true surprise of the film is how realized their world is.
July 20, 2019
Like Shaun of the Dead before it, this film respects the lore of its subject matter even while skewering it.
July 18, 2019
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.
March 29, 2019
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.
February 11, 2019
One of the best films of 2014.

Immortality can't all be glam, cloak-swishing nights out or chases pursued by pitchfork-waving villagers. At some point someone has to sort out the recycling and wash up the blood-spattered plates. Funny, clever, weirdly believable and eminently quotable.

The awkwardness of Viago, Deacon, and Vladislav has plenty of room for a sequel, but existing as a stand-alone piece of comedic genius is fine by me.
November 20, 2018
Amidst all the blood spilled in the vampire spoof, there's an inherent sweetness to all the characters and a concern for one another that make every punchline even funnier if such a thing is even possible.

I would definitely suggest horror fans share with their friends or family that may be weary of horror films. It is not scary at all, it is so amusing, and it perfectly fuses comical scenarios with creatures typically associated with scary movies.
October 24, 2018
While it might ultimately prove too smart for mainstream audiences, What We Do in the Shadows has already staked out its rightful place for THE cult flick of 2015.
August 28, 2018
Shadows has a drawn-out sketch feel that renders it more The Real World: Vampires! than This is Spinal Tap, but pop-culture vampires were more than due for a send-up.
August 23, 2018
While both the style and the subjects are arguably overdone, the characters in this little film are original and alive. Well, not alive exactly, but believable and vibrantly undead.
August 21, 2018
What We Do in the Shadows is the funniest horror movie I have ever seen.
April 11, 2018
Simply put, a hugely enjoyable mockumentary that will get a smile out of the most coldest of hearts.
