What We Do in the Shadows  (R13) Violence and offensive language

Some interviews with some vampires

Taika Waititi (Boy) and Jemaine Clement (Flight of the Conchords) are the writers, directors and stars of this vampire mockumentary. Unearthing a secret, supernatural society, otherwise known as a bunch of vampire flatmates in Wellington, the film introduces a world where friendship and camaraderie are just as important as feasting upon the flesh of mortals. Based on Waititi and Clement's 2006 short film of the same name.

"Consider the living quarters of vampires, and stodgy old castles in Transylvania may come to mind. But these aren’t your typical bloodsuckers. Viago (379 years old), Deacon (183 years old), Vladislav (862 years old), and Peter (8,000 years old) have chosen to share a flat in Wellington, New Zealand. Unfortunately for them, it’s hard to make new friends due to their constant thirst for blood. Without any mortal chums left to invite them in to all of the hip establishments around town, they’ve lost touch with the current social scene. Can these creatures of the night put aside their differences as roommates and adapt to modern society?" (Sundance Film Festival)
