Fans of Flight of the Conchords will rejoice at the arrival of this acclaimed horror comedy / mockumentary. While Flight of the Conchords cast an absurd, often surreal look at the day-to-day activities of two flat-sharing New Zealanders trying to make it in New York’s music scene, What We Do in the Shadows casts a similar eye on the daily mundanities of misfit vampires sharing a flat. The film stars Jemaine Clement and Rhys Darby. The omission of fellow Conchord Bret McKenzie (now an Academy Award winning composer) is somewhat alleviated by the addition of Taika Waititi, who wrote and directed some Conchords episodes. This is a must-see for fans of quirky comedy and, needless to say, for fans of Flight of the Conchords … “It’s business. It’s business time.”
