For the past several years, I’ve made October an all horror film month for the kids and myself, probably as a fair amount of people do.  Oddly enough, my daughter loves it, but my son flits in and out with it, sometimes into it, sometimes gets a little too freaked out.

Also, recently, they’ve gotten into watching Flight of the Conchords, which I failed to see in its day.  Actually, it was after watching What We Do in the Shadows a few months back that finally got me around to checking out Conchords.  So, for him, for our Halloween night movie fest, we went with a horror/comedy double feature, starting with this mockumentary about vampire flatmates in New Zealand.

I liked it again.  Maybe a little more, now familiar with Jermaine Clement and Rhys Darby (Murray from Conchords, showing up here as the alpha werewolf).  The kids both liked it too.  Taika Waititi, who co-wrote, co-directed, and co-stars in the film with Clement, is also very funny and sweet as Viago.

Fun stuff.
