The movie What We Do In The Shadows is a 2014 feature film, it also spawned a US TV series around 2019? Unfortunately, I don't remember exactly and am too lazy to check either.
What We Do In The Shadows follows three vampires named Vladislav (Jemaine Clement), Viago (Taika Waititi) and Deacon (Jonny Brugh). It's a kind of parody-like humour that has no actual plot; it's more a mockumentary in the style of ‘This Is Spinal Tap'. It also makes fun of how vampires are shown in other movies-mainly that of Hollywood.
The New Zealand born actor Taika Waititi has enjoyed incredible success since starring in this comedy-horror flick. He won the Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay for his movie JOJO RABBIT and was also nominated for an Academy Award for Best Picture. Not to mention his directing credits on Thor: Ragnarok!
