The Review: What We Do In The Shadows

I checked out this movie called What We Do In The Shadows. There will be spoilers. Its a comedy about four vampires that are roommates being filmed for a documentary. There is Deacon, Viago, Vladislav, and 8,000 year old Petyr who is in the movie just enough to keep him creepy as hell and funny. They are recorded talking about their daily lives and how it is being in the modern world which they are bad at. Deacon has a helper named Jackie who has been waiting years to be turned into a vampire. She does their laundry and helps bring victims, preferably virgins. As he puts it “I think of it like this. If you are going to eat a sandwich, you would just enjoy it more if you knew no one had fucked it.”

One night Jackie brings a couple over that she thinks are virgins since she hasn't talked to them in ten years. Nick escapes but is attacked and later returns as a vampire that has no idea how to control his powers. His dumb ass walks around telling everyone that he is a vampire. Nick can get them into clubs because under normal conditions they cant enter unless invited. There is one scene where they bump into werewolves and are total dicks to them. I'd like to watch a film about those guys. Nick ends up bringing his friend Stu around who the vampires like more because he introduces them to the internet and TV.

After Nick causes the death of one of the vampires he is banished. Vlad keeps on mentioning a monster named The Beast and is upset that The Beast is getting an award at a party he is supposed to attend. All hell breaks loose when Stu is discovered to be the only human at the party. There is more but you'll see it if you check this movie out. Its funny but would have been a bit funnier if some of the improvisation didn't go as long as it did.
