Storyline

Who says being an undead creature of the night is easy? With this in mind, three ancient friends and centuries-old vampires--Vulvus, the romantic and somehow temperamental Lord Byron wannabe; Viago, the 19th-century flamboyant dandy, and Deacon, the 107-year-old youngster--invite a documentary crew to shed light on a vampire's daily life. Starting off from the fateful day of their eternal metamorphosis, the modern-day blood-sucking city dwellers do not shy away from answering thoroughly personal questions about their delicate flatting situation--after all, this is an interview and not a mere excuse for a quick and easy meal. Will we ever find out what vampires do in the shadows? Written by Nick Riganas

Interesting, but watch the feature film first
20 December 2017 | by wp-859-224985See all my reviews

This is the short (half hour) early version of what in 2014 became the feature film 'What We Do in the Shadows'. The 2014 film is brilliant, inventive, quirky, and side-splittingly funny. But that's the later 2014 film. THIS short film shows the trio creating their characters, and so it's really a rough sketch of what later becomes a great painting. I'm pretty sure that if I'd seen this short first, I'd never have watched the feature film, and that would be sad.

So my advice is, watch the 2014 full-length film first, then watch this short to learn a little about the amazing transformations that can occur in the creative process.
