After countless films and TV series that have hit our screens, we all know what to expect from a vampire story. If you’ve been waiting for something to break the mold within the genre, What We Do in the Shadows definitely seems to tick that box. We have the previously released trailer, a new image, and a poster which promises that the film will be “hilarious”.

“Diving deep into the throes of vampire life in New Zealand, What We Do In The Shadowsintroduces us to age-old vampire flatmates Vladislav (862 years old, played by Clement) Viago (379 years old, played by Waititi), Deacon (183 years old) and Petyr (8,000 years old). Stuck in their antiquated ways, they struggle to adjust to 21st century customs, like paying rent, sharing household chores and getting expressly invited into nightclubs. Enter 20-something hipster Nick, who Petyr turns to get an inside education on the modern world. What follows includes a whole lot of discovery: from fashion to technology and even a little feeling — all laced in continuous hilarity, of course.”

What We Do in the Shadows stars Taika Waititi (Boy, Eagle vs Shark), Jemaine Clement (Flight of the Conchords), Rhys Darby, Jonathan Brugh, Cori Gonzalez-Macuer, Stuart Rutherford and Jackie van Beek. The film has been showing at numerous film festivals throughout the year, most recently at the Toronto International Film Festival. However, a theatrical release date has not yet been confirmed, so stay tuned. This image is thanks to Bloody Disgusting:
