We Rank The Best NZ Comedy Flicks
For many years now, Taika Waititi and a number of other NZ Directors have been creating comedy gold and since the phenomenal success of 'Hunt for the Wilderpeople,' we thought it was only right to compile a list of our favourite NZ flicks...
Milo Cawthorne and Kimberley Crossman star in this humorous horror that depicts a couple of heavy metal fans that accidentally summon a demon. A sequel titled Deathgasm Part 2: Goremageddon is said to be in production.
Why we love it: Heavy metal misfits make excellent demon hunters.
This horror/comedy film was a hit with movie critics and audiences alike but unfortunately it still remains relatively unknown. Morgana O’Reiley portrays a woman sentenced to home detention in a haunted house, the results are well worth a watch!
Why we love it: It's unpredictable and packs the perfect amount of twists and scares.
4. Black Sheep
Aside from Lord of the Rings and Pavlova, our beautiful country is still known mainly for its sheep population. Director Jonathan King took our national treasure as his chance to create this twisted comedy on genetically-altered sheep.
Why we love it: Killer sheep are actually a lot more hilarious than they sound.
This funny yet sombre coming-of-age flick is based on the life of an 11-Year Old kid and the relationship with his father. The movie became a Kiwi classic and won big at both Melbourne and Berlin’s International Film Festivals.
Why we love it: Boy has some crazy cool Michael Jackson dance moves, just ask Chardonnay.
2. What We Do In The Shadows
Starring Jemaine Clemment, Rhys Darby and Taika Waititi himself, this one-of-a-kind mockumentary was the talk of NZ. The film focuses on a group of vampire flatmates who are struggling to adjust to modern day life.
Why we love it: 'What We Do In The Shadows' has the best one liners we've heard in a while i.e. "We're Werewolvess not Swearwolves".
1. Hunt For The Wilder People
Lastly, the best of the bunch was the 2016 film directed by Taika Waititi. Hunt for the Wilderpeople received critical acclaim and won the hearts of many viewers across the globe. The film stars Julian Dennison and Sam Neil who become the subjects of a manhunt after they get stranded in the wilderness. Keep an eye out for Stan Walker as he also has a few appearances in the movie.
Why we love it: The script, storyline and actors made this unforgettable.
We couldn't fit all of our favourite flicks in this list so we've included some honourable mentions. Our other top picks inlude: Eagle Vs. Shark, Second-Hand Wedding and Sione’s Wedding.
