What We Do in the Shadows 

When: Sat., Oct. 29, 6:30 p.m. 2016



To paraphrase the final line of the 1987 classic The Lost Boys, modern pop culture suffers from a surplus of "all the damn vampires." There's the sexy/sparkling kind, the traditional crazed bloodsuckers, and whatever the hell Vampire Academy was supposed to be. But who are these fanged beings, really? The 2014 New Zealand mockumentary What We Do in the Shadows redefines the domestic life of centuries-old creatures, housebound by day, street-roaming by night, who also have the problems most people do with roommates, modern technology, and the mysteries of the younger generation. Cowritten and codirected by Jemaine Clement of Flight of the Conchords and Hunt for the Wilderpeople's Taika Waititi, Shadows has already become a cult comedy and inspired an upcoming sequel and TV spinoff. This 9 p.m. screening is preceded by a Halloween party at 6:30 that includes more creepy photo portraits by Wes Naman (see p. 33), a professional Halloween makeup workshop, magic and mentalism by Matt Brockman, and more. —Zack Smith

9 p.m., $10–$13, www.ncartmuseum.org
