Never mind the movie, I’m going to watch this trailer at least ten times. No, seriously. You thought vampires were dead? Jemaine Clement’s reviving them they only way that makes any sense—with a farcical mockumentary. The multi-talented man composes music, sings, acts, writes (this script, along with Taika Waititi), and now makes his directing debut with What We Do in the Shadows; he also plays one of the three completely ridiculous vampires who live together. Clement and co-stars Taika Waititi (Boy, Radiradirah) and Jonathan Brugh (How to Meet Girls from a Distance, The Jaquie Brown Diaries) are “just trying to get by and overcome life’s obstacles-like being immortal vampires who must feast on human blood.” It’s basically vampire Seinfeld, only (bloody) funnier. See for yourself:
Any time I read Clement’s name, I know something hysterically silly is headed our way, and this looks to be no exception. What We Do in the Shadows premieres in New Zealand June 12th; the rest of us have to hang around until every drop of blood is drained.
