Delightfully absurd and ridiculously fun, What We Do in the Shadows expands on the film's vampiric lore and finds fresh perspective in its charming, off-kilter cast to create a mockumentary series worth sinking your teeth into.

Critic Reviews for What We Do in the Shadows Season 1

All Critics (68) | Top Critics (19)

With all the riches of the vampire myth in literature, folklore, art and cinema to plunder, What We Do In The Shadows is visually arresting, smart and witty.

What We Do in the Shadows works. It truly, pardon the pun, doesn't suck.

I've seen the first batch of episodes of this series. And they're all so clever and genuinely amusing.

It seems to me that What We Do in the Shadows has more up its sleeve than just re-creating the vibe of the original.

Top Critic

The four leads are great, the jokes crisp and fast and funny, and the visual effects are employed just as effectively as in the movie, folded seamlessly into the handheld-camera aesthetic so they seem all the more uncanny.

Top Critic

It fits perfectly into FX's off-kilter sense of humor, and actually gets a little funnier with each episode.

Mar 26, 2019 | Full Review…

What We Do in the Shadows subtly taps into the notion of its vampire characters as immigrants.

Everything in this series works perfectly. [Full review in Spanish]

Aug 12, 2019 | Full Review…

Nadja is the perfect foil for Laszlo's pomposity, but also shines when she gets to lead her own storylines.

Jul 29, 2019 | Rating: 9/10 | Full Review…

This intelligent comedy will end up being among the best of the year by its own merit alone. [Full Review in Spanish]

    This show is so good, I can't believe it. Every subsequent watching reveals even more to enjoy. The scripts are hysterical, and the actors are perfection. It actually makes me happy. It's my new favorite show.

    Lacks the charm and humor of the original
  • Jun 21, 2019
    This show is spot on from the original movie with the exception of the new additions in the form of emotional and energy vampires. We chuckle throughout every well written and acted episode. Guillermo plays to the documentary cameras with such stiff brilliance. Can't wait for season 2.

    Absolutely delightful. I want more immediately.
  • Jun 17, 2019
    By far one of the funniest & original series I have viewed in a long time!! My only criticism is that there is simply not enough of it! Supported by a fantastic cast & crew, alongside some incredibly creative writing, this show deserves to linger in the shadows for years to come!!

    Great continuation of the film. It explores and expands upon the universe. They can sustain the comedy throughout the entire season and the characters are all interesting and different. The concepts are well executed and the dialogues are hilarious. The actors do a spectacular job. I hope we get plenty more seasons.
