(2014) What We Do in the Shadows

I was so surprised by this movie, it’s an absolutely wonderful comedy-horror that truly feels original. The humor is pretty dry so it might not translate to everyone but the fresh take on a currently stale vampire genre should be a treat for any horror fan.

All the performances were great but none that I thought were huge stand outs, it felt very cohesive among the cast. There’s a basket of easter eggs referencing older vampire flicks and some not so secretive homage payed to the greats (The Lost Boys, Nosferatu).

This is a fast paced comedy that never drags, a definite must watch for fans of dry comedy or horror fans that just want to see some fun poked at their favorite vampire movies.

8/10
