HICP: What We Do in the Shadows (15)

09/04/2015 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm


Hull Independent Cinema Project presents: What We Do in the Shadows (15) (Dir: Taika Waititi, Jemaine Clement).

Follow the lives of Viago (Taika Waititi), Deacon (Jonathan Brugh), and Vladislav (Jemaine Clement) – 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.

“the type of little movie that you watch and feel like you’ve discovered something really special. It’s a total surprise; a silly, scary delight.” Playlist

What We Do in the Shadows is rated 15. Visit the BBFC website for full details (may contain plot spoilers).
