‘What We Do in the Shadows’ Due July 21

photo for What We Do in the Shadows New Zealand indie film by Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi, creators of the HBO hit series “Flight of the Conchords.” A hilarious send-up of vampire films in which an endearingly unhip quartet of vampire friends reveal to us or, rather, to the documentary crew that’s filming them, the details of their daily — make that nightly — routine. Ranging in age from 183 to 8,000, and in appearance from adorably youthful to Nosferatu-crusty, they squabble over household chores, struggle to keep up with the latest trends in technology and fashion, antagonize the local werewolves, cruise clubs for lovely ladies, and deal with the rigors of living on a very, very strict diet. Vitals: Director: Jemaine Clement, Taika Waititi. Stars: Jemaine Clement, Taika Waititi, Jonathan Brugh, Cori Gonzalez-Macuer, Stu Rutherford, Ben Fransham. 2015, CC, MPAA rating: NR, 85 min., Horror Comedy, Box office gross: $2.176 million, The Orchard/Paramount. Blu-ray extras: Commentary by Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi, “Behind the Shadows,” deleted scenes, video extras, interviews, promo videos, poster gallery.
