What We Do In The Shadows Premiere

What We Do In The Shadows had its premiere at The Embassy Theatre in Wellington this evening.



Synopsis: Flatmates Viago, Deacon, and Vladislav are three vampires who are just trying to get by in modern
society; from paying rent and doing housework to trying to get invited in to nightclubs, they’re just like
anyone else – except they’re immortal and must feast on human blood.
When their 8000 year-old room-mate Petyr, turns 20-something human hipster Nick, into a vampire, the
guys must show him the ropes and guide him through his newfound eternal life. And in return they are

forced to learn a thing or two about modern society, fashions, technology, and the internet. 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 maybe humans are worth fighting for, and that
even though your heart may be cold and dead, it doesn’t mean you have no feelings.

The film is directed by Jermaine Clement and Taika Waititi and is based on a 2006 short film of the same name. The feedback so far has been overwhelmingly positive.
