  • I like vampire films and was quite anxious about this one

      I didn’t know exactly what to expect at first. I like vampire films and was quite anxious about this one. The Daybreakers is about a society in which vampires are the majority and humans are the minority.

      In fact, the government has begun to “farm” human beings for their blood. But this process fails, and

      the food supply (humans) begins to diminish.

      As a result, the vampire race becomes hideously disfigured; they ultimately transform into a lesser species of vampire—creatures, basically that have lost all sense of intelligence and decorum. I really liked that the story was told in the manner in which it was.

      I liked that the “farming” process wasn’t ...

      • the primary focus, but yet a tangential part of the story. This was a startling aspect to bring to a fictional film.

        That humans could become extinct and that vampires would eventually feed on each other—only to become a more guttural species—was quite scary. The actual twist was something that I really didn’t expect.

        I liked that the “cure” for vampirism was as simple as it turned out to be. I won’t give it away.

        But if you like horror films that provide an inkling of thought, you’ll like seeing these people attempt to revise the human race. Willem Dafoe does an excellent job, as usual.

        And Ethan Hawke’s performance was to be expected.
