Not good for Taika, not good for us
17 May 2020 | by nekosenseiSee all my reviews

I bought this film under the mistaken impression that it was a Taika Waititi production in some way, which it isn't--he's just part of the cast. Taika probably took his role as the toxic guru Storsh for good reasons like supporting indie filmmaking, but to me it leaves a bad taste to for him to be cast as the bad guy in a majority white American film. Also an unhappy reminder that Taika has had to make his own movies in order to get parts really worthy of his talent. No casting director in all of Hollywood would have thought "This guy does a great Viennese accent, he'd make a fantastic nerdy/cute Eastern European vampire and all he needs is blue contacts and he'd absolutely kill as Hitler!"

I'm all for raising public awareness of the dangers of religious cults, having had the horrific experience of having a formerly trusted friend get into one and then try to recruit me, but this clumsy farce does it very badly. And it does horror comedy badly too, which the presence of one of the creators of the "What We Do In The Shadows" franchise just makes more mortifying.
