    Just found out about this movie... I'll be seeing it asap.

    From the creators of the Flight of the Conchords...


    What We Do in the Shadows


    Its a "documentary" about four vampires living in an apartment together in the world today.


    Reviews have been great and the trailer, looks funny.

    I liked FotC. I'm a little tired of vampires. I'll probably check it out of it's convenient. Thanks for the heads up. :)

    I have this on Bluray - It's pretty freaking funny. And it's more a comedy about share-housing than anything. The fact that they're vampires is kinda secondary.

    I'll see it on Netflix when it gets there. I borrowed one of their albums from my eldest daughter. Hilarious stuff. Every song makes me laugh at least once.

    If you can find it... watch their two seasons on HBO.. the first season was amazingly funny... second season was solidly funny.

    I really love FotC but disliked this movie. It's silly and awkward which is fine for a bit but both my wife and I stopped it after 30 min.

    We were waiting for something to happen but it didn't. And after the vampire jokes are over, you're wondering if they'll switch gears and have some funny moments that are devoid of those gags. We were disappointed.

    Finally saw it in a theater... my wife and I both enjoyed it.. did we love it.. no.. did we laugh quite a bit...yes... were we overall entertained..yes.


    I actually want to see it again at home. I think there might have been a couple of things I missed.

    Didn't work for me, I lasted about 20 minutes before I switched it off.
