Not Another Vampire Movie June 30, 2009

Posted by Patrick in Cinematics.


If “Twilight” doesn’t float your boat, maybe “Daybreakers”, a vampire film without glittery vampires, teen angst and long romantic stares between humans and vampires, will. The cast is pretty impressive, with Ethan Hawke headlining alongside Sam Neill, Willem Dafoe and eh…Tasha from “Home and Away”.

The plot, in a nutshell, is that Ethan Hawke is a researcher in 2019 when a plague has turned (most of) the world’s population into vampires. But since everybody’s a vampire, there’s not much to eat. Remaining humans are hunted and farmed while the vampire population struggle to find a substitute food source.

The film is directed by Peter and Michael Spierig, who I’ve never actually heard of, but apparently directed a low budget horror in 2003 called “Undead“. Despite this, it looks like a genuinely good horror/thriller and the visuals and strong premise will probably make for a satisfying watch.

Also, how terrifying does Sam Neill look with those weird vampire contacts? Check out the trailer below…
