FOCUS: HUMOR—IN THE JOCULAR VEIN In a much lighter vein then any run-of-the-mill, fly-by-night zom-com bromance, What We Do in the Shadows liberally and literally raises the stakes of the vamp-camp genre, featuring an irresistibly toothsome cast, including co-directors-co-stars Jemaine Clement (Flight of the Conchords) and Taika Waititi (Boy) as a coupla wild and crazy dead guys who join dark forces to fight for the right to, well, party vampire-style in the tony clubs of Wellington, New Zealand. But eternal life is not all fun and games: The four flatmates must negotiate their night-to-night routines, like house tidying (i.e., squabbling over the dreaded chore wheel) and troubles with modern technology, ex-girlfriends, and overly cheery police inspectors. You are guaranteed to go batty for this must-see, soon-to-be “occult classic” in the style of Christopher Guest. It will leave you thirsty for more. Bloody good fun!
