Behind The Shadows – Making of What We Do In The Shadows Making (rare)

henrystonesMay 2, 2022

This is only available on early release DVDs, later prints have stripped out many of the features. I think it’s a great source material to observe how to achieve special effects for genre work within a low budget. 3m50 shows the rotating hallway fight including all hands on deck to build the apparatus and Taika Waititi holding the camera himself while also in costume.

    I can't believe they actually lit someone on fire.

    Also, some of this made it into the show. That's pretty cool to see that it was originally for the movie.

    I don't know why this came across as disturbing but I definitely don't remember feeling queasy during the actual movie. 😞😷

  • They actually set a mf on fire, mental

    This is such a fever dream.

  • This is by far my favourite video of the year. Thanks so much. Do you have any more WWDITS BTS footage?

  • They cut so much of it obviously. I hope they have kept it and will show it to us one day.

  • Omg where tf did you get this? It's GOLD. THANK YOU!

    Of course the beast is a man talking about a ex girlfriend πŸ˜…

  • Andrea leeMay 2, 2022Reply

    That was a cool scene with the backpack

  • great job trying to convince us this was a movie and not found footage documentary

  • seeing them do the fire scene was intense holy crap

  • this scene killed me, I love Taika and all of his work.

  • Its so rare you guys

  • Starski529May 2, 2022Reply

    Can anyone tell me what the song is that is right after the fire scene? About 8 mins 30 secs in.

  • Diogo CezarMay 2, 2022Reply

    My favorite movie of times

  • Roy RMay 2, 2022Reply

    The fact this is one of his first films and he got a rotating corridor is MENTAL. Those are so expensive, that's a flex.

  • Roy RMay 2, 2022Reply

    "Bloody LLLLLLLL"

  • This is the best movie ever made..

  • My mind is blown, I just figured out Jermaine was one of the characters and it totally went over my head it was him.

  • The difference between Deacon's (Jonathon Brugh) voice and his real voice with the kiwi accent is more than I thought it would be. His voice for Deacon is perfect. N sexy.

  • Joon ParkMay 2, 2022Reply

    Wait. The documentary was faked???

  • The scene with Deacon and Nick in the sunrise together was really cool, considering their massive rivalry in the film, did it make the final cut?

  • NapperMay 2, 2022Reply

    Films are so cool

  • The fire part gave me so much anxiety! 🀣 Good job to everyone who made that scene possible.

  • LamiriaMay 2, 2022Reply

    Daaaamn the bts of the Petyr death scene was so damn cool. I take it that was still a stunt double under that mask, right?

  • ChaitraMay 2, 2022Reply

    I always wondered how they did the scene with deacon chasing nick up and down the walls πŸ˜„

  • KSDVLmomMay 2, 2022Reply

    I thought i laughed hard at the movie scenes. Seeing taika gather newspapers for a full minute made me cry

  • Tracy LeeMay 2, 2022Reply


  • I love vampire life

  • Colin BellMay 2, 2022Reply

    Is it just me or was the filming of Viago's first blood sucking scene funnier than the actual thin.
