What We Do In The Shadows – Mockumentary You Need to Watch

Kiwi mockumentary What We Do In The Shadows has been included in a list of mockumentaries you will need to watch in an article on Vice.

What We Do in the Shadows, directed, written, and starring filmmaker Taika Waititi follows vampire roommates living in New Zealand and gives an ‘insider’s look’ at what it’s really like as supernatural creatures adapting to the 21st century,” writes Sarah Bellman in the Vice article.

“If you want to find out what happens when vampires stop being polite and start getting real, this bloody good mockumentary is it.”

The other mockumentaries recommended in the article are:

  1. Operation Avalanche, which is “filled with wit, humor, and sharp historical commentary.
  2. The Rutles: All You Need Is Cash – “a mock-“rockumentary” following the Rutles, an obvious parody of the Beatles.
  3. Bob Roberts, which follows the corrupt, right-wing, titular character as he runs for president of the United States
  4. S.A.: The Confederate States of America – a mockumentary which “takes political satire a few steps further, presenting an alternate history of what would happen if the South won the Civil War”
  5. Man Bites Dog – “a controversial, utterly disturbing horror movie”, which “follows a documentary crew who gets sucked into a life of crime while profiling an unapologetic serial killer.”
