What We Do in the Shadows
Living with roommates is hard. Living for hundreds of years with immature, dirty, narcissistic vampire roommates is even worse. What We Do in the Shadows is a hilarious mockumentary (think The Office) focusing on the lives of four vampire housemates living in Staten Island as they try to deal with the changing world and fighting over who has to do the dishes. Things become more complicated when one of their meals is turned into a vampire and brings the modern world even closer.
What We Do in the Shadows (2014, R) is one of my all-time favorite movies, never failing to make me laugh. Each character is more outrageous than the last and the situations they find themselves in, even more so. Director Taika Waititi, who is also a main character, brings a comedic quirk that is hard to explain but irresistible once you experience it.
If you enjoy the movie, check out the new TV show on Hulu by the same name. Arguably even better than the movie, it's not to be missed. You can check out a Roku from our tech takeout for access to Hulu.
