Daybreakers DVD

Starring Ethan Hawke, Willem Dafoe, and Sam Neill

It's the year 2019 and human population is dwindling.  It all started with one bat, then vampire after vampire until soon humans were farmed for their blood supply because there were too few left on the earth.  One doctor, a vampire, has empathy.  One vampire seeks a cure.  One vampire can be trusted. 

The vampires are mutating from a lack of human blood supply and Edward Dalton's job is to find a temporary replacement for the blood until more humans can be farmed, as per Edward's boss', Charles Bromley (Sam Neill) instructions.  Times are frantic, there is panic and violence ensues. 

Audrey Bennett (Claudia Karvan) and Lionel 'Elvis' Cormac, a covert group of humans in hiding, are leading the human mission for a cure.  They have the right idea but they must find help and enlist Edward in their pursuit.  But is it too late?

This thriller has an interesting storyline but is filled (and I do mean filled) with language, graphic violence, brief nudity and blood scenes.  If you are at all adverse to this, like me, avoid this film.  Rated R (unbeknownst to me when I began watching). 

Rated 2/5
