One of the funniest movies of last year—albeit, one that not a lot of people know about—was the vampire mockumentary, What We Do in the Shadows. Written and starring New Zealand’s Taika Waititi and Jemaine Clement (the latter of HBO’s Flight of the Concords fame), this film balls up centuries worth of bloodsucking canon and throws it back full of wit and smart humor that covers all of the vampire tropes without feeling forced.
That’s a difficult task to accomplish—just ask the Marlon Wayans (how does he continue to get these parody films green-lit?).
Check out Angie Barry’s review of this kiwi comedy:
For those who haven’t seen the film, what are you waiting for?
For those that have (and those who have now returned after remedying their oversight of missing out on a great film)—rejoice! Waititi and Clement are teaming up again to bring you a werewolf parody along the same lines as What We Do in the Shadows.
While the project is on the backburner due to Waititi’s Marvel responsibilities, he recently revealed to CraveOnline that the movie now has a title—and it couldn’t be more simple and fitting—We’re Wolves.
Does anyone not love a good word play pun?
