Infestation: SXSW 2019 – “What We Do In The Shadows”

What We Do In The Shadows TV Review at SXSW

Taika Waititi and Jermaine Clement are not going to casually let someone else take over what they began. They created the new comedy classic What We Do in the Shadows film in 2014 and now in 2019 they are bringing us an American tv series, on the oft-reliable F/X network, that tells a similar, but different story. A new group of vampires is given the mockumentary treatment as we see how they live their day-to-day (or rather, night-to-night) lives. Chris and Martin from Oneofus.net got to see this first episode at SXSW 2019 and can’t help but question: as good as it was, would we have rather just watched Taika Waititi and Jermaine Clement shoot the shit for two hours? Watch our review here.
