Ever wondered about the inner workings of a vampire’s mind? Do you spend your spare time thinking about how a group of flat-sharing vampires divide up the household chores, or how they decide what to wear for a night on the town? Yeah, so do we. All these musings and many more are answered in Jemaine Clement and Taika Waitit’s hilarious mockumentary, What We Do In the Shadows. To celebrate the release of the Flight of the Conchords writers’ latest project, we take a look at the other best mockumentaries to hit the silver screen.

If ever a comedy film deserved a pass on the basis of its cast alone (other than It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World, naturally), one could make a pretty strong case for The Rutles: All You Need Is Cash, the centerpiece of The Rutles Anthology.
