"What We Do in the Shadows" is the least scary vampire movie you'll likely ever see.

Unless, of course, you someday have the rare honor of watching "Zoltan, Hound of Dracula."

It's also quite possibly the funniest vampire movie you'll ever see.

Unless, of course, you someday have the rare honor of watching "Zoltan, Hound of Dracula."

This mockumentary, which was shown at the 2014 South by Southwest film festival, deals with a group of vampires who are sharing a flat together in New Zealand. They're pretty much normal guys, expect, instead of swilling brewskis, they drink blood.

Think "This Is Spinal Tap" meets "True Blood," with a dash of "The Monkees," and you get a good sense for "What We Do in the Shadows." The film was directed and written by Taika Waititi and Jemaine Clement (Flight of the Conchords), who also star in the film.

The film focuses on Viago (Waititi), Vladislav (Clement), Deacon (Jonathan Brugh) and Petyr (Ben Fransham), four vampires trying to navigate through the 21st century and make it to the 22nd century and beyond. A camera crew enters the world of these vampires — with the assurance that the filmmakers won't be eaten — and documents all the trials and tribulations.

It's certainly not easy sharing a flat, especially one populated by vampires. These bloodsuckers have to work hard to make sure that everyone is carrying his own weight. That means having the difficult talk with the messy roommate, who just leaves a spinal column laying around on the floor, and getting on the vampire who hasn't done the dishes in five years. And, really, does dragging a corpse down the hall constitute sweeping up?

The film addresses other daily -- I mean, nightly -- vampire problems, most of which humans never consider. For one thing, how does a vampire get suitably dressed to kill if he can't see himself in the mirror?

It's those kinds of thought-provoking issues that make "What We Do in the Shadows" so worthwhile.
