This hilarious mockumentary transposes traditional vampires to suburban Wellington. Three ancient blood suckers and one reluctant newcomer demonstrate unusual frankness, explaining to an unseen documentarian the highs and lows of 21st century New Zealand living.
Conceived and written by Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi, the loose, goofy humour gains instant traction through the loving recreation of vampire aesthetics and genre lighting. It's Nosferatu by way of Flight of the Conchords, so successful that it spawned a franchise, with spin-off television series the world over, including the beloved Wellington Paranormal.
