What We Do In The Shadows - Animal Control - Review: "They've stolen Laszlo!"


Returning home from feeding, Nadja and Laszlo have different ideas about what’s kinky. Nadja’s in the mood, but Laszlo’s simply in the mood to keep eating. While Laszlo hypnotizes his neighbor, Nadja leaves, bored by what’s happening. She misses the moment Phil’s wife comes home and beats the crap out of Laszlo, who is in bat form. Guillermo and Nandor don’t miss it though – they’re watching through binoculars and reacting.

Cue opening credits.

Nandor, Guillermo, and Colin rush off to help Laszlo. The guys get to the neighbors in time to see animal control leaving. With Bat!Laszlo.
Nadja, unaware of this drama, is off watching her ex-lover Gregor, who almost gets decapitated by a boom barrier. And, yes, she’s still struggling with his name. Jeff.


We spend half our time this week watching Nadja cringe through a date with an all-round incompetent Jeff, and the other half watching the guys fumble through rescuing Laszlo from animal control.
Nandor’s first attempt at rescuing Laszlo just results in a completely different, non-vampire bat (that's possibly infected with rabies) freed.
The date night at the carnival turns sour pretty fast for Nadja. When Jeff fails at shooting a bow and arrow she begins to lose her cool. With her patience gone, she hypnotizes him to remember his past lives. And he does. Jeff, it seems, is actually Gregor after all. Never doubt Nadja.
We watch as Jeff relives each life, Nadja moving him on to the next one right before his death in each past life. Including the life where he was a...horse.
Back at the animal shelter, Laszlo is trying to hypnotize the animals into opening their cages and freeing him. This is not working. He’s interrupted by the animal control worker bringing in a dog. Nandor’s second big plan was to turn himself into a dog and rescue Laszlo. It only ends with Nandor also locked in a cage, and Laszlo no closer to freedom.

Guillermo does the only smart thing anyone has done all night and phones Nadja. She leaves Jeff, who’s in the middle of a nervous breakdown after having all these past lives revealed to him, and goes to help Laszlo. Because even though their marriage has dull moments, he is still her husband.
Nadja simply asks the receptionist for the door code, punches it in, and rescues the guys.

While Jeff, babbling like a crazy person, is hauled away by the police (likely for a psych eval), Laszlo is running away from all the animals he’s just freed...

Ungrateful bastards.

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
