Mildly interesting for fans, but not nearly the film that the 2014 incarnation was.
15 January 2017 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is a short film that eventually was remade as a brilliant full- length film, "What We Do in the Shadows". Apparently this short floated around the internet for a while and was used to try to secure funding for the later movie.

What I immediately noticed about this 27 minute short is that it's incredibly low energy compared to the later film. The camera is nearly always stationary, the actors portraying the vampires sound almost as if they are half-asleep and the jokes are very, very few. Because of this, it's not a must-see for fans of the later movie. A few other things you will notice if you watch this one is that the actors' voices are a bit harder to understand as the prosthetic vampire teeth apparently were difficult to talk with clearly. And, the music is very cheap and simple....as is this film itself. Not a terrible film but one that is a mere shadow of its later incarnation and not terribly enjoyable.
