As far as comedies go, the Taika Watiti – who is currently busy directing Thor: Ragnarok for Marvel – film What We Do In The Shadows was one of the best in 2015. The success of that film sparked talks of a possible sequel, which was then confirmed to be true earlier this year when it was announced that it would be followed up by We’re Wolves starring Rhys Darby and Stuart Rutherford. Now the world of What We Do In The Shadows is about to get a little bigger as it has been confirmed that it will also be getting a TV spinoff called Paranormal Event Response Unit. More on the story below.
More than any other year this decade, 2015 had a sufficient amount of prestigious films that had distinct narratives about women being considerably perplexed and troubled with their particular situations. Perusing the films on my list, I started to realize that a vast number of them contained women longing to attain an ideal, a passion, or a faint semblance of hope that the future can and will be brighter. From all over the globe these individuals sought love and respect only to encounter threatening obstacles, some that could be overcome and others that could barely be comprehended, let alone endured.

Two women who fall spellbindingly in love in Carol each possess desires to create a lasting bond with each other despite society’s unbending morality. Looking to move up in the ranks of the FBI and make a name for herself, Kate unquestionably steps too far out of her comfort zone where she quickly meets the most ruthless of men in Sicario. And the women of Mad Max: Fury Road are acquainted with an impossible to comprehend evil but are willing to go through an unrelenting gauntlet to attain their ideal.
“The Humans Are Dead” is not just a Flight of the Conchords song. Really, the humans are actually dead…well, technically undead. New Zealand’s Jemaine Clement (Flight of the Conchords, Eagle vs. Shark) and Taika Waititi (Eagle vs. Shark, Boy) have created a “vampire documentary” called What We Do In The Shadows and they believe “the truth about vampires must be told in America.”
This award-winning independent film, which we got to see a trailer for back in December, is now in New Zealand, but Clement and Waititi are raising funds on Kickstarter to bring it to 70 cities in the United States.
