I love a good vampire movie, and I love a good sci-fi movie. Add those two together, and you’ve got a movie that’s got me very much intrigued. Even though Twilight was better than I expected (review will follow soon), it’s still not the type of vampire movie I’m looking for. Daybreakers though is something completely different and I’m curious to see more of it.
Here’s the description:
In the year 2019, a plague has transformed most every human into vampires. Faced with a dwindling blood supply, the fractured dominant race plots their survival; meanwhile, a researcher (Ethan Hawke) works with a covert band of vamps (Willem Dafoe, Claudia Karvan) on a way to save humankind.
I always like it when the vampire’s are not necessarily the bad guys, but most of the time it’s still “we must remain a secret, the humans must not find out about us, blablabla”. Finally a movie that dares to shaken that up a bit. The whole vampires main stream society thing is something I’ve been dying to see for ages, and with this sci-fi-ish angle it’s really got me excited for it.
