If we are ever to combat the cruel and vicious rumors surrounding vampires, wemust bring their story out of the darkness. It’s time Americans learn the truth about the vampire community – but we can’t do it without you. Vampires all over the world will love you forever (literally).

WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS chronicles the adventures of four vampire roommates trying to get by ina modern world that’s not always hospitable to the undead. Clement and Waititi, creators of the HBO hit series “Flight of the Conchords,” co-wrote, co-directed, and co-star in this hilarious send-up in which an endearingly unhip quartet of friends reveal to us or, rather, to the documentary crew that’s filming them,the details of their daily-make that nightly-routine.  Ranging in age from 183 to 8,000, and in appearance from adorably youthful to Nosferatu-crusty, they squabble over household chores, struggle to keep up withthe latest trends in technology and fashion, antagonize the local werewolves, cruise clubs for lovely ladies, and deal with the rigors of living on a very, very strict diet.  The film also stars Rhys Darby, Jonathan Brugh, Cori Gonzalez-Macuer, Stu Rutherford, and Jackie Van Beek, and was produced by Waititi, Chelsea Winstanley and Emanuel Michael.
