Watch What We Do In The Shadows

Sometime distributors get nervous that their film will disappear in the wild scrum of new releases. So they splurge a load of footage online hoping it’ll help. Fortunately both the New Zealand and UK distributors have been doing that this year with different scenes (I don’t think the UK’s done yet either) and so I’ve pieced together 14 minutes of it in probable order. It’s worth doing this because the movie looks hilarious.
