Follow the lives of Viago (Taika Waititi), Deacon (Jonathan Brugh), and Vladislav (Jemaine Clement) - three flatmates who are just trying to get by and overcome life's obstacles-like being immortal vampires who must feast on human blood. Hundreds of years old, the vampires are finding that beyond sunlight catastrophes, hitting the main artery, and not being able to get a sense of their wardrobe without a reflection-modern society has them struggling with the mundane like paying rent, keeping up with the chore wheel, trying to get into nightclubs, and overcoming flatmate conflicts.

I thought it was very well written, original, well acted and fun!
It is full of vampire lore jokes (e.g. how can you coordinate your clothes for a “night out” when you can’t see yourself in the mirror...) in addition to mocking the set up and petty squabbles of flat mates, in reality TV programmes). I particularly liked “Viago” and his novel “dating” technique, alongside “Judith” the slightly desperate, vengeful vampire familiar and “Petyr” (the 8,000 year old classic “Nosferatu”).
While always fun, I found it laugh out loud funny in a few of places (e.g. the boys night out “chips” scene pay off - but then, I have been told I have a warped sense of humour - with a distinctly dry, intelligent, Kiwi feel, to the comedy.
A little gem
Id say Hunt For The wilderpeaople was a better film cinematically - but this is a laugh every minute so is def the winner of the two for me.
This mockumentary of their everyday mundane lives but having to cope with their vampire traits in the 21st century is witty and well conceived. Situations are immediately identifiable to us mortals who have ever flat shared. The effects are well done too and amongst the amusing set ups are a few creepy/make you jump moments.
The climax is a monster ball with zombie and werewolf chapters from other Wellington suburbs coming together - a bit like a prom night - with the predictable fight, bickering and girl trouble. The werewolf chapter is well conceived too with their leader being a 'sensible' chap (recall him as one of the support cast in the Flight of the Conchords) who doesn't like swearing and bad behavior and insists his mates chain themselves to trees when the full moon comes round so their bloody rampages are minimised - doesn't always work though!
As other reviewers have said - it could be the bases for a TV series.
However, if you need to know more, know that even if you're not into the documentary genre this will make you change your mind. It is shot in such a way as to be slightly reminiscent of reality shows, however it is true to its genre. It limits itself to following the daily activities of a group of vampires, without being intrusive, or disruptive: it limits itself to narrating the events.
This documentary is great because it sheds a light on a group of beings often misportrayed in modern culture, and misunderstood. It definitely challenged my point of view and my stereotypes, I will not look onto a vampire the same way. I think people who rated it one star have found their believes challenged and did not like that.
I can't wait for the next one by the same authors to come out.
