The creators of HBO’s hit series “Flight of the Conchords,” Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi, co-write, co-direct and co-star in What We Do In The Shadows, a comedy in which an endearingly unhip quartet of vampires squabble over household chores, struggle to keep up with the latest trends, antagonize the local werewolves and deal with the rigors of living on a very, >very strict diet.
Flatmates Viago, Deacon and Vladislav are just trying to get by in modern society; from paying rent and sticking to the housework roster to trying to get invited into nightclubs, they’re just like anyone else—except they’re immortal and must feast on human blood.\
When their 8,000-year-old flatmate Petyr turns 20-something human hipster Nick into a vampire, the guys must teach him the ropes and guide him through his new found eternal life.
And in return they are forced to learn a thing or two about modern society, fashions, technology and the internet. But it’s the introduction of Nick’s human friend, Stu, that really changes the vampires’ lives and attitudes
When Stu’s life is threatened, the vamps show us that maybe humans are worth fighting for, and that even though your heart may be cold and dead, it doesn’t mean you can’t feel anything.
