“Taika and Jemaine are so immensely charming as well
as funny.” – Pam Grady, San Francisco Chronicle
Being a vampire is hard. It may have been easy in ancient Transylvania, but it’s a different story for three bloodsucking roommates in modern New Zealand. Consider trying to make new friends while having a constant thirst for blood,
or keeping up on appearance without using a mirror, or catching up with thousands of years of dirty dishes. In this hysterical mockumentary MVFF alum Taika Waititi (Boy and Eagle vs. Shark) and Jemaine Clement (Flight of the
Conchords) share writing, directing, and acting duties in a hilarious fashion that hasn’t been matched since Spinal Tap and Waiting for Guffman.
