What We Do in the Shadows (2014)

Directors: Jemaine Clement, Taika Waititi. Cast: Directors: Jemaine Clement, Taika Waititi, Jonathan Brugh. 86 min. New Zealand/USA. Comedy/Horror.

My problem with Noah: it made no sense to create a personal version of an already contested story. The same thing happens here ... but ends in a brilliant victory. A supposed camera crew follows a group of four New Zealand vampires in their home, in reality TV format, showing the difficulties of daily life based on the vampire myths we already know. The result is so smart and charming, I was smiling throughout the entire film. And the unique horror-comedy perspective was so similar to another New Zealander, Housebound, I could've sworn they were made by the same director.
