Here’s a fifth clip from What We Do in the Shadows. The film is opening in the UK November 21st. Look for it here in the U.S. on February 13, 2015.
In the film
The hilarious What We Do in the Shadows was recently picked up for distribution by The Orchard. No release date has been set, however, those of you living in the UK will be seeing it arrive in theaters November 21st.
This morning, we have a look at the poster as well as the trailer for the overseas release.
The “discovery” out of the Stanley Film Festival for me was What We Do in the Shadows, a mockumentary about a group of vampires living together under one roof. It’s a gem, trust me. Very funny stuff. And for the longest time, I wondered why it still had not found distribution.
Today, however, we are learning – thanks to The Wrap – that The Orchard, Unison Films and Funny or Die are coming together to release the film across all platforms. No release date yet, though.
The Midnight Madness and Vanguard slates at the Toronto International Film Festival were revealed this morning and they feature quite a crop of promising films. Per the official site, this program offers “The wild side: midnight screenings of the best in action, horror, shock and fantasy cinema.”
Kevin Smith’s Tusk leads the pack. The film stars Justin Long and Michael Parks and concerns a podcast who meets an eccentric old man who intends to turn him into a walrus. We spoke to Smith about the film at Comic-Con – read that interview here.
What We Do in the Shadows was, hands-down, the best thing I saw at the Stanley Film Festival. I just found it absolutely hilarious. It’s not a horror film, it’s a mockumentary about vamires, but what it does right is…it’s smart about the genre.
Written and directed by Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi, the film follows four vampires living together in New Zealand. It basically follows their day-to-day undead lives.
