Home comedy meets sartorial camp as four vampire housemates in Wellington squabble over dishwashing and trash sorting. Then an innocent victim survives the blood-letting and joins the fray. Unfortunately, he has a tendency to mouth off about vampire skills and insists on bringing his still human friend to the group. As the local beer-swilling werewolves sharpen their fangs for a showdown, there’s nary a dry artery in the house.
