Taika Waititi is the man. If you love the style of the office then this is a great film for you.

An easy, fun watch. It's up there with Shaun Of The Dead & The Monster Squad :)

Absolutely hilarious! And much to my surprise, some scenes are most gruesome and even frightening!

This movie was fabulous! Hilarious! I rarely laugh out loud but this one got me going. Taika Waititi takes the whole thing even though I started watching for Jermaine. I wasn't a big fan of the werewolves but it's a take-off on all the vampire shows out there. I especially loved their ...Read more

My favorite comedy of the past few years! Fans of" This Is Spinal Tap" and
Monty Python should find a lot to like here.

Irreverently and grossly funny and entertaining. I don't remembering chuckling through a vampire film like I had here!

I have seen this movie a million times by this point...Taika and Jemaine did amazing jobs with bringing this film to life. I really have a lot of love for this movie, as well as Taika's other movies. If you're a fan of this one, give Hunt for the Wilderpeople, Eagle vs. Shark, and Boy a ...Read more

Great humor and funny way to view the lives of people we don't see everyday.

The "This Is Spinal Tap" of vampire movies!

A trip full of belly laughs - within the first 20 minutes I found myself laughing hysterically. The cast is great, been a fan of Jemaine Clement since his Flight of the Conchords days, always great to see the range of his comedic repertoire!

Incomparable. The humor works only if you're willing to join in the peculiar perspective, but it's easy.

Belly laughs and arterial spray. One of the funniest movies I've seen in years!

This was absolutely great and hilarious. They hit just about every vampire trope there is and used it for comedic effect.

Really daft! Absolutely devoid of any humor, and no acting to speak of...waste of time.

Oh my gosh... absolutely hilarious comedy, and definitely the best use of the "mockumentary" style ever. The details, the little lines that are thrown in... just everything well done but not looking like some polished Hollywood production. Instead, delightfully quirky :)

OMG what a blast! :-D Thank you Kanopy!

Horror-comedy is my favorite genre so this was a big winner for me. It's really funny and I loved the characters and attention to detail on the production design. Taika Waititi is one of my favorite directors, I highly recommend this and his other films.

fun! I enjoyed it...

This movie is an exceptional twist on the vampire genre. It employs both comedy and the mockumentary trope to demonstrate a classic, historical narrative through a new and modern perspective. The opening credits are a great example of the marriage of the historical context of the vampire ...Read more

These guys are the best "worst" vampires ever. The understated deadpan comedy vibe of the film is great.
