"It's a cheerfully horrific affair, a sanguine comedy that feels more than a bit like a Christopher Guest farce or an elaborate Monty Python sketch, imprinted with the Kiwi comic sensibilities of co-directors Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi."
"Just when it looked like the vampire genre had been bled dry, along comes the insanely inspired horror-satire WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS to give it fresh bite."
-LOS ANGELES TIMES
"So smart and perceptive."
Grab some popcorn, take a seat, and be ready for some laughs and some tears — the 5th Annual Kickstarter Film Festival is coming to a theater near you.
This year’s festival is bigger than ever. On Thursday October 15, Over 30 theaters across the United States will screen an expertly curated selection of some of the best short and feature films funded on Kickstarter.
WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS:
From the creators of the HBO hit series FLIGHT OF THE CONCHORDS, Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi co-write, co-direct, and co-star in this hilarious comedy in which an endearingly unhip quartet of vampires ranging in age from 183 to 8,000 years old, squabble over household chores, struggle to keep up with the latest trends, antagonize the local werewolves, and deal with the rigors of living on a very, very strict diet. The film also stars Flight of The Conchord’s, Rhys Darby, Jonathan Brugh, Cori Gonzalez-Macuer, Stu Rutherford, and Jackie Van Beek.
