What We Do In The Shadows Reviews

    "I think of it like this. If you are going to eat a sandwich, you would just enjoy it more if you knew no one had fucked it." So, I really laugh out loud. I've loved Only Lovers Left Alive and this one is like it but a comedy. So imagine a documentary mocking the way of life of vampires. All the 21st-century problems lived by 300+ years vampires. It's just great.

    I'm exhausted with both vampires and mockumentaries but still loved every minute.

    Pretty funny and witty as expected with Jermaine Clement and Taika Waititi. Good use of music and great acting from the whole cast.

    While it's never quite as funny or just overall as good as these creators later works or even the eventual TV show adaptation, WWDitS benefits from it's sheer earnestness and charm. Taika Waititi and Jermaine Clement are incredibly enjoyable performers, and what they've put together is a very enjoyable film with a lot of creativity and charm behind it. I have to say that while there are a couple big laughs, there aren't as many as I'd hoped for. However, the movie is relentlessly likable, and while the laughs it does have aren't huge they are pretty consistent. I was mostly at least chuckling through a lot of the movie. There is some clumsiness to the production that comes from something this low budget, but in a lot of cases they work around these things or use them to their benefit as best they can. It's not perfect, and they did polish up on these ideas later on, but for a starting off point it's so eager and just likable I really enjoyed it.

    This movie is hilarious. It may not have been promoted like a big budget movie, but it is inventive, witty, and a hidden gem. The television show is just as, if not more so, as funny as the movie. I think the TV show is the best and freshest show on television today.

    Taika Waititi proves yet again that he is one of the most original and funny people making movies anywhere on the planet. So many funny lines, amusing and silly humour, and it never slows down from beginning to end. And given there is so much murder, blood and death, it's really good natured too!

    I really enjoyed this mockumentary. Funny stuff and absurd perspective about vampires living in our modern days.
