Synopsis Waititi gives Viago an irrepressible puppy-dog enthusiasm that clashes beautifully with Clement’s quasi-sexy brooding as Vladislav, while Brugh functions much like Harry Shearer in THIS IS SPINAL TAP... -- Grade: BTaking the form of a faux documentary in the Christopher Guest tradition, the frequently laugh-out-loud film profiles a dysfunctional group of aging children of the night who happen to be longtime New Zealand flat-mates.3 stars out of 4 -- [W]hen the vamps hit the town to party with werewolves, zombies and the strangest creatures of all, you won't be able to wipe the smile off your face.3.5 stars out of 4 -- Clement is predictably great as a sulking brute, but Brugh and Waititi are the film's standout performances. Waititi's nervous nice-guy schtick brings Andy Kaufman's Latka character from 'Taxi' to mind...[A] goofily amusing mockumentary from the New Zealand comedians and actors Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi.WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS, a clever mockumentary from Taika Waititi and Jemaine, proves that some tropes, like the undead and roommate problems, are eternally funny.WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS is a bracing reminder of how the right burst of energy and style breathes fresh ideas into a genre threatened with creative exhaustion.3.5 stars out of 4 -- [T]his pitch-perfect genre spoof is worth relishing. Ridiculously funny and creative, the horror/comedy hybrid unfolds as a mockumentary.FLIGHT OF THE CONCHORDS collaborators Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi reteam for this comical mock-documentary centering on four contemporary vampire roommates waging an immortal struggle to be cool. When they're not looking for their next meal or scheming to get into the hottest dance clubs, the bloodsucking foursome get their kicks by stirring up trouble with the local lycanthropes, or bickering to determine who's fallen behind on their housework. Rhys Darby, Jonathan Brugh, Stu Rutherford and Jackie van Beek co-star.
