We've seen a lot of vampires, and vampire comedy, lately. But Jemaine Clement (Flight of the Conchords) and Taika Waititi (Eagle vs. Shark) tap a whole new vein of humor in their hilarious mockumentary What We Do In The Shadows. We talked to Clement and Waititi about making vampires funny again.
An endearing mockumentary about ancient vampires struggling with modern-day annoyances, What We Do in the Shadows boasts some of the most lovable horror-movie characters in recent memory. And by "lovable," we mean raunchy, rude, violent, and hilarious.
One of the most buzzed-about films at this year's Sundance Film Festival is the mockumentary What We Do in the Shadows, following a group of vampire roommates, who are forced to learn about the modern world. This clip of the film's first six minutes shows us what they're working with.

If an extraterrestrial were to spy on certain corners of the Earth, might it decide that the automobile was top dog on our planet? The 1966 short film What on Earth! pokes fun at car culture by imagining a misunderstanding Martian report on Earth's dominate species: the car.
Yes, we're still disappointed that we didn't get a World War Z mockumentary. After all, science fiction and horror lend themselves quite well to the faux-documentary format. So we're kicking back with 15 speculative mockumentaries, from a silly Star Wars lark to an earnest look at Britain on the eve of nuclear war.
We knew that the World War Z film wasn't going to be faithful to Max Brooks' book, but what if the producers had gone in the opposite direction, shooting the movie as a Ken Burns-inspired mockumentary?
