Utilising the same mock documentary style which made This Is
Spinal Tap (qv) a cult favourite, this independent piece from New Zealand follows a quartet of vampires as they go about their daily lives in the build-up to an annual ceremony with others of
Typical roommate arguments are mixed with more vampiric
problems, such as not being able to check their appearance in the mirror, avoiding sunlight and the inability to eat junk food.
It's understandable why this has garnered a cult following,
but it won't be for everyone.
