Honey Buzz ~ Official US poster for WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS

If you haven't heard about What We Do In The Shadows yet, it's time that changed. Indie horror films from "The Down Underland" rarely make it overseas to North America, but when it does, you can bet that it'll be a fucking masterpiece.

Aussie horror films are unique in their raw approach to the genre, and you'll be familiar with titles like The Babadook, Wolf Creek, and Daddy's Little Girl... but horror films from New Zealand are an anomaly to say the least, and usually come with a helping of Peter Jackson. New Zealand produced films you might be familiar with, Dead Alive, Black Sheep (one of my favorites), Bad Taste and Housebound... are all horror comedies. Comedy is something that Kiwi's do well, and What We Do In The Shadows is a worthy addition to my list of Kiwi horror comedy must have's.

Heading towards an American release, the creators and stars of What We Do In The Shadows have released a US poster, and a Kickstarter that needs your support!

I fucking love this film.. and so should you!




WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS chronicles the adventures of four vampire roommates trying to get by in a modern world that's not always hospitable to the undead. Clement and Waititi, creators of the HBO hit series Flight of the Conchords, co-wrote, co-directed, and co-star in this hilarious send-up in which an endearingly unhip quartet of friends reveal to us or, rather, to the documentary crew that's filming them, the details of their daily-make that nightly-routine. Ranging in age from 183 to 8,000, and in appearance from adorably youthful to Nosferatu-crusty, they squabble over household chores, struggle to keep up with the latest trends in technology and fashion, antagonize the local werewolves, cruise clubs for lovely ladies, and deal with the rigors of living on a very, very strict diet.  The film also stars Rhys Darby, Jonathan Brugh, Cori Gonzalez-Macuer, Stu Rutherford, and Jackie Van Beek, and was produced by Waititi, Chelsea Winstanley and Emanuel Michael.
