    If you're after a vampire film that doesn't take itself seriously and is faux documentary, then this is a good choice. So far I've yet to meet a friend who hasn't liked it and it's done so well we now have Wellington Paranormal on our TV's. Read more

    …and informative! many interesting (tongue-in-cheek) ‘facts’ about Vampires living in NZ in the 21st century. If you're intersted in 'real vampires as opposed to the sparkly kind, then you must watch this mockumentary :) Read more
