What We Do In The Shadows: Where Mockumentary and Horror Meet

This is a response to Why Does ‘The Office’ Work?

I consider myself to be both a very big horror fan, as well as a very big comedy fan. Finding the right horror comedy could be a challenge. That was the case until I found the 2014 film, 'What We Do In the Shadows'. I instantly fell in love with the movie because of the craziness and the horror elements. I was even happier to find out that there was a spin-off tv series of the same name.

'What We Do In The Shadows' is a mockumentary in the style of The Office and Parks and Rec. The one thing that sets 'What We Do In The Shadows' from the previously mentioned shows is the fact that it centers around vampires rather than humans. The 'What We Do In The Shadows' tv series follows a group of vampires and their human familiar. The show centers around various antics and situations such as trying to blend in with society, facing the vampire council, and accidentally being sent to animal due to being in bat form

What makes 'What We Do In The Shadows' so fun is that you can enjoy it whether you're a horror lover or a comedy fanatic. You also don't have to be super up-to-date on all the vampire media and lore to understand it or to even like it. Overall, 'What We Do In The Shadows' is a top-tier mockumentary that has to be seen to be believed

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out?

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?
