X was the real YIt turns out vampires were the real vampires.

Jemaine from Flight of the Concords made a documentary about some vampires.

Comedy horror movies are a hard thing to pull off, but this movie succeeded in being smart and funny, and in telling a compelling story.

I don't have a lot to say about it because, I didn't really think it had any major failings*.

Addendum: Actually, I shouldn’t gloss over the fact that this is the first movie this year with more than 2 major characters that failed Bechdel-Wallace (Paranormal Activity & The Babadook essentially had only 2 characters, and you could still make an argument that they passed it [It should be a simple enough test that I lean toward no if I have any hesitation]). One of the only named women acknowledges the gender issues in it, but that’s not enough to excuse the fact this movie is essentially all men. There's no excuse for this.
