What We Do in the Shadows has been busy making the festival rounds for months now and it’s got the laurels and pull quotes to prove it. The Taika Waititi and Jemaine Clement mockumentary focuses on Viago (Waititi), Deacon (Jonathan Brugh) and Vladislav (Clement), three flatmates who also happen to be vampires. Sick of vampires? What We Do in the Shadows might actually be perfect for you because based on the promotional material released for the film thus far and Phil’s TIFF review, it seems like Waititi and Clement approach the overused creatures from a new and very hilarious perspective.
Hit the jump to check out the latest What We Do in the Shadows trailer. The film also stars Rhys Darby, Cori Gonzalez-Macuer, Stu Rutherford and Jackie Van Beek, and is due to hit theaters on February 13th.

Here’s the synopsis for What We Do In the Shadows:
WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS chronicles the adventures of four vampire roommates trying to get by in a modern world that’s not always hospitable to the undead. Clement and Waititi, creators of the HBO hit series “Flight of the Conchords,” co-wrote, co-directed, and co-star in this hilarious send-up in which an endearingly unhip quartet of friends reveal to us or, rather, to the documentary crew that’s filming them, the details of their daily-make that nightly-routine. Ranging in age from 183 to 8,000, and in appearance from adorably youthful to Nosferatu-crusty, they squabble over household chores, struggle to keep up with the latest trends in technology and fashion, antagonize the local werewolves, cruise clubs for lovely ladies, and deal with the rigors of living on a very, very strict diet. The film also stars Rhys Darby, Jonathan Brugh, Cori Gonzalez-Macuer, Stu Rutherford, and Jackie Van Beek, and was produced by Waititi, Chelsea Winstanley and Emanuel Michael.
