“When you are a vampire, you become very sexy”

You may have shared houses with some weirdos in the past, but the housemates in _What We Do in the Shadows_ take the cake. Viago (Taika Waititi) is a fussy dandy who sleeps in a coffin, Deacon (Jonathan Brugh) hasn’t washed the dishes in 500 years, Vlad (Jermaine Clement) has Bram Stoker’s Dracula-style orgies in his room and 8,000 year old Petyr (Ben Fransham) mostly hides in the basement behind a heavy stone boulder. The four have allowed camera crews into their Wellington home to film them in the lead-up to The Unholy Masquerade, an annual New Zealand gathering of the undead and their supernatural counterparts.
