What We Do in the Shadows

I loved how this perfectly plays the "dead" pan documentary style of showing regular folk in action and interviewing them individually about their lives. Except in this case, the subjects are vampires who have been around for hundreds of years and are now sharing a flat in contemporary New Zealand, feeding on unsuspecting humans. I hardly recognized Jemaine Clement from Flight of the Conchords in his Musketeer hair, a vampire who has unresolved issues with one he calls the Beast. The group has issues with vampire hunters, the newly undead, attracting victims, harassing werewolves, and washing the blood off everything.
