What We Do In The Shadows is more than just Flight of the Conchords with bloodsucking vampires – it’s one of the funniest films I’ve seen in years. The three central vampires, joined by a freshly “recruited” New Zealand twenty-something, have all the same problems of wayward millennial slackers: what to do with their nights, how to dress to impress, and how to stay entertained – except a lot more flying and a greater aversion to crucifixes. The film is impeccably cast, but bonus points to the peripheral characters that make the whole premise come alive, especially Petyr the 8,000 year old nosferatu and Anton the werewolf (played by the always-reliable Rhys Darby). There are a few gut-busters sprinkled throughout, but you’ll be surprised by how consistently funny the whole affair is. With a premise that seems like a sketch at best, it is an absolute triumph that Taika Waititi and Jemaine Clement were able to sustain such joy for nearly ninety minutes.
