Winner of the People’s Choice Award at the Toronto International Film Festival, this laugh-filled salute to the mocumentary form and monster movie genre offers a clever salute to pop vampire myths. Viago, Deacon, Vladislav, and Peter are four vampires—each from a different historical time and place—sharing a house in Wellington, New Zealand and trying to balance being undead with the most basic everyday problems. None of them are quite equipped to deal with the modern age, leading to hilarious encounters with potential victims, other creatures of the night, and modern technology. As a documentary film crew follows them round, we learn about each of their histories and what it means to be hundreds of years old in the 21st century.
