They are not booing ladies and gentleman they are chanting Stu.

What We Do in the Shadows: 9 out of 10: A mockumentary (I hope) about a group of vampires sharing a flat in New Zealand and the various challenges that befall them.

I have now regained hope in the mockumentary formula. Like many of you, I had sat through one mockumentary after another with diminished returns. Similar to the joke a second “Airplane” style movies, mockumentaries seemed destined to dwell in a land of talentless hacks looking for an easy film to make on a low budget.

So what does What We Do in the Shadows do differently than other recent mockumentaries. Well, it is laugh out loud funny, yeah I will go with that.

What We Do in the Shadows has good acting, an excellent story and premise, fresh takes on well-worn tropes, and plenty of surprises. It is an entertaining time that has regained my faith in a tired genre. Well worth checking it out.
