Move over Edward Cullen, there are some new vampires in town... in Wellington, New Zealand to be precise. This very funny movie follows the lives of four vampires sharing a house together and getting up to everyday activities - like vacuuming, clubbing, and feeding on victims. Shot as if it were a documentary, it does an excellent job at flipping the vampire movie stereotype on its head.
Taika Waititi directs and stars in the movie as Viago and is excellent. Jemaine Clement (who you might recognise from the Flight of the Conchords) is as usual, very funny. Jonathan Brugh plays Deacon well, however, there is not nearly enough of Ben Fransham as the vampire Petyr, who was definitely one of the more interesting characters in the film.
The story was fairly slow moving and at times, fairly obvious in terms of plot development. However, there is still a lot of fun to be had here, with many laugh out loud moments.
It's definitely worth seeing if you get the chance. Also make sure to watch Waititi's previous films if you haven't seen them (notably Boy and Shark vs Eagle).
