Watch ‘What We Do in the Shadows’ deleted scenes from new DVD/Blu-ray release


What We Do in the Shadows is one of those movies that sneaks up on you. It’s hard to hear about, since it saw an extremely limited release in the festival circuit in 2014. If you did hear about it, it was almost impossible to watch legally unless you were lucky enough to live near one of those prestigious festivals. However, it gained something akin to a cult status rather quickly as movies of such high quality are wanton to do. Finally, for the first time, it’s possible to buy What We Do in the Shadows on Blu-Ray and DVD. To celebrate, we’ve got some deleted scenes to share with you from the release.

From the creators of Flight of the Concords, What We Do in the Shadows is a mockumentary horror comedy about a group of centuries old vampires trying to adapt to life in suburban New Zealand. When their 8000-year-old roommate, Petyr, turns 20-something human hipster Nick into a vampire, the guys must guide him through his newfound eternal life. In return, they are forced to learn a thing or two about modern society, fashion, technology, and the internet. But it’s the introduction of Nick’s human friend, Stu, that really changes the vampires’ lives and attitudes towards the world around them. When Stu’s life is threatened, the vampires discover that humans are worth fighting for, and that even though a heart may be cold and dead, it can still have feelings.

The movie is fresh, entertaining, and has an undeniable charm. In the years since Twilight it’s been more than tempting to simply disregard anything and everything to do with vampires. But this movie breathes new life into the genre, as well as that of horror comedy.

Fans should be purchasing a copy of it on either DVD or Blu-ray. You’ll not only be supporting a hilarious movie, but you’ll get access to a number of extras, including deleted scenes. With its minimal script and hilarious improvisations, the movie promises a bevvy of amusing outtakes.
