A real howler

OUT NOW! The supernatural comes down to Earth, in WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS.

Home comedy meets sartorial camp as four vampire housemates in Wellington squabble over dishwashing and trash sorting. Then an innocent victim survives the blood-letting and joins the fray. Unfortunately, he has a tendency to mouth off about vampire skills and insists on bringing his still human friend to the group. As the local beer-swilling werewolves sharpen their fangs for a showdown, there’s nary a dry artery in the house.

What We Do in the Shadows | Directed by Jemaine Clement, Taika Waititi (New Zealand 2014) with Jemaine Clement, Taika Waititi, Jonathan Brughe. Starts October 30
