What We Do In The Shadows
In this hilarious mockumentary, flatmates Viago, Deacon, and Vladislav are three vampires who are just trying to get by in modern society. When their 8,000-year-old room-mate Petyr, turns 20-something human Nick, into a vampire, the guys must show him the ropes and guide him through his newfound eternal life. In return, they are forced to learn a thing or two about modern society. But, it’s the introduction of Nick’s human friend Stu that really changes the vampire’s lives and attitudes towards the ever-changing world around them. When Stu’s life is threatened, the vamps show us that humans are worth fighting for, and even though your heart may be cold and dead, it doesn’t mean you don’t have any feelings.
