We need to show New Zealand more respect.
After all, the Kiwis gave us Lord of the Rings. The ruggedly handsome Cliff Curtis (of Fear the Walking Dead and recent Under the Radar film Push). The hilarious comedy duo/show Flight of the Conchords.
And now they've delivered What We Do In the Shadows,one of the funniest horror comedies in decades.
Framed as a documentary, the story follows a very unusual quartet of roomies in the months leading up to a wild party known as The Unholy Masquerade.
Viago, Vladislav, Deacon, and Petyr share a flat in Wellington. As in most flatting situations, there's the occasional conflict between clashing personalities. Even the friendliest of roommates bicker at times.
The fact that these roomies are all vampires just means things often get literally bloody.
