Perhaps the most exciting element of the new trailer for What We Do In The Shadows, the vampiric mockumentary directed by Taika Waititi and written by Jemaine Clement, is the codification of the energy vampire – a supernatural being who does not subsist on the blood of its prey, but on their psychic endurance.
We knew the upcoming show, adapted from Waititi and Clement’s 2014 film of the same name, would present a host of vampires as they attempt to cohabit like us mere mortals. What we didn’t expect was the inspired addition of Mark Proksch as energy vampire Colin Robinson, casting every punisher you’ve ever met as some kind of immortal entity. Behold:
The show, which also features Kayvan Novak, Harvey Guillen, Natasia Demetriou, Beanie Feldstein, and the always-welcome Matt Berry, is expected to materialise on Foxtel after its American debut on March 27. Blah!
