What we do in the Shadows - movie

Hi there

The NZ vampire movie "What we do in the Shadows" has now had its NZ premier. There have been vampires running hither and thither all around the country to promote the happening.

The vampire mockumentary will have a for-charity screening at the Roxy theatre, here in Miramar on 23 June.  After the session there will be a Question and Answer session with directors/actors Taika Waititi ("Boy") and Jermaine Clement ("Flight of the Conchords"), as well as actor/comedian Cori Gonzalez-Macuer.

"Boy" was one of my fave top NZ movies.  I loved it that Waititi managed to incorporate the song "Poi-E" into "Boy".   "Poi-E" had reached no 1 in the music charts in 1984 , and  with it's second outing, in 2010, reached no 3 (darn-it, Waititi was hoping for no 1!).

The below link will hopefully get you to the original Patea Maori Club version of "Poi-E".
