Vampires, Werewolves, Familiars and their never-ending humor

When Taika Waititi and Jemaine Clement came up with the movie ‘What We Do in the Shadows’ in 2014, they only had a small budget to go on. But they’re back now, with the transition of the movie to a TV series and with surmounting humor. This Wednesday, 27th of March 2019, the pilot episode of ‘What We Do in the Shadows’ came out. It brought with it, to the fans of the movie, reminiscences of the subtle yet overt comedy. For one thing, though, the show makers are unabashedly super crazy about Vampires, all kinds of them. Waititi and Jemaine say they like Salem’s Lot, Nosferatu, The Lost Boys, Fright Night, Interview with the Vampire, etc. However, none of the horror and mystery themes of these movies seem to replicate in their show.

What We Do in the Shadows

In fact, the Vampires of their fictional world somewhat resemble Count Dracula from Hotel Transylvania in spirit and temperament. In the show, during ancient times, the Vampires were sent to NYC to annex and conquer the “New World”. But over the centuries, they’ve become indolent and inactive, thereby losing sight of their true purpose. But the Vampires Nandor, Laszlo and Nadja have awoken once again in the mayhem of the 21st century.

What do the Vampires really do in the Shadows?

Laszlo is quite eccentric and self-appraising while Nandor is naive and mostly is at his wit’s end. Nadja, Nandor’s wife who claims that she hypnotizes Nandor to fall for her, is as unappeasable as a stubborn mule.

Once a terrorizing figure who pillages people of the Ottoman Empire, Laszlo doesn’t live up to his name. With his human-familiar, Guillermo, he visits a grocery shop only to throw ancient coins at the teller. So, before they can get anywhere near conquering the world, the Vampires have to learn of its ways.

Another hilarious moment that effectively brings out the makers style of humor is the ‘Swearwolves’ scene. Since Vampires have a long-standing history of bad blood with the Werewolves, they swear at each other. That’s right, both the species have evolved so much like humans, that they swear before they brawl.

And the capes of these vampires almost get caught everywhere, in taxis, elevators, vacuum cleaners, and whatnot. Whereas, Colin Robinson is a deviation of a Vampire who calls himself an ‘Energy Vampire’. He feeds on people’s energy by boring them with extremely tiring, never-ending conversations or enraging them to no end.

Employing the documentary style of film-making and comical type of story-telling, both Waititi and Jemaine resurrect the movie.
