Shortly after Edward Cullen and Bella Swan fucking shimmered their vampire asses through a disturbingly bad film trilogy that grossed hundreds of millions of dollars, we met Viago, Vladislav, Deacon, and Petyr — just four totally average vampire dudes trying to kick it in the 21st Century as roommates sharing a flat in New Zealand.

Welcome to What We Do in the Shadows — the 2014 bloodsucking mockumentary written, directed, and starring Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok) and Jemaine Clement (Flight of the Conchords) that has redefined the vampire genre in the most self-aware way possible. The film has also spurred a series of the same name and concept — though set in Staten Island — on FX, which announced last month that it would be renewing the comedy for a second season.

What We Do in the Shadows screening begin at midnight on Friday, June 14, and Saturday, June 15 at the Main Art Theatre; 118 N. Main St., Royal Oak; 248-542-5198; Tickets are $7.
