What We Do in the Shadows: Season 1 (2019)

TOMATOMETER

Critic Consensus: 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.

All Critics (58) | Top Critics (18)

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.

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.

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

So yes, these vampires still suck -- but in a unique series that otherwise just tickles.

It works exceedingly well, although Mark Proksch is so far the stand-out, as an energy vampire playing basically a version of Gary Cole's character in Office Space. He bores people, and feeds off their energy.

Clement and Waititi have brought the mockumentary-mundane style to a hair-raising Gothic situation with felicitous results: Every week brings more opportunities to watch the undead be mortified.

Apr 9, 2019 | Full Review…

The humor is still very dry and character-driven, and the show is simply delightful.

Apr 8, 2019 | Full Review…

Pleasingly nothing has been lost in its voyage across the seas, despite a whole new cast -- including the smashingly funny Matt Berry -- the TV show has captured the same vibes and dry humour of the original.
