What We Do in the Shadows (2014) is a hilarious comedy about a group of vampires taking part in a documentary. The film – written and directed by Jermaine Clement and Taika Waititi – is a sort of mash up of This is Spinal Tap and Interview with a Vampire… and is bloomin’ brilliant!

The film is also loaded with fantastic dialogue. How fantastic?

This fantastic!

Here are the nine best quotes from What We Do in the Shadows.

Deacon: “One day I was selling my wares, and I walked past this old, creepy castle, and I look at it and think, “‘Very old and creepy”. And then this creature flies at me! It dragged me back to this dark dungeon, and bit into my neck. And just at the point of death… this creature forced me to suck its foul blood. And then it opened it’s wings, like this, and hovered above me screeching, “Now… You are vampire!” And it was Petyr. And we’re still friends today.”

Viago: “I really hope that those guys don’t kill those police, because it will mean more police will come. Possibly even Christians, which is totally the last thing we need in this house.”
