Set to have both its US and Canadian premiere at the Midnight Madness section of the Toronto International Film Festival is Taika Waititi and Jemaine Clement’s What We Do in the Shadows.
Evan Dickson loved the film when he saw it at the Stanley Film Festival earlier this year.
In it, “Vladislav (Jemaine Clement), Viago (Taika Waititi), and Deacon (Jonathan Brugh) are three flatmates who are just trying to get by and overcome life’s obstacles—like being immortal vampires who must feast on human blood. Hundreds of years old, the vampires are finding that beyond sunlight catastrophes, hitting the main artery, and not being able to get a sense of their wardrobe without a reflection, modern society has them struggling with the mundane like paying rent, keeping up with the chore wheel, trying to get into nightclubs, and overcoming flatmate conflicts.”
