In 2012, New Zealand's most well-known documentarians, Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi, teamed up to follow a group of Wellington-based vampires. Yes, actual, real vampires. The resulting film is a raw, unflinching look at the lives of the undead community, and no stone unturned. From hunting victims and draining their blood to more mundane activities like paying the rent and keeping the house tidy, What We Do In The Shadows documents their struggles, fears and dreams.
