So I wacthed this awesome movie!
I watched the best vampire mockumentary from New Zealand the other evening. It's called What We Do In The Shadows. It had the perfect amount of cheesyness but at the same time the acting was phenomenal. The story follows four vampires of differing ages and backgrounds as they live their nights in Wellington New Zealand. They try and deal with problems such as who does the dishes, how do they lure their victims into their home, popularity and werewolves. I laughed so hard during parts of this film. Written and directed by the multi talented Jermaine Clement and Taika Waititi, these guys do not disappoint. They address most of the typical vampire mythos but through the eyes of badassery and dorkiness. Here's a taste via one of the old trailers.
