Living in a world where vampires are the dominant species is about as safe as bare backing a 5 dollar whore. - Elvis
I have been pestering my brother to find me a copy of this film and download it to his PSP for me to watch. The premise is so intriguing that I really have to watch this film. Plus it's a vampire movie! ^_^

For lovers of the Vampire genre like me, Daybreakers offers a flawed and thoroughly gore and bloody fun. Good thing that the movie is shot in a midnight mode (the bluish background) else your screen will be too bloody effin red. There are guts and blood everywhere. Brains blowing, flesh tearin' and heads flying. This movie is not for the faint of heart.

The movie is set in the year 2019. A mysterious plague has swept over the earth, transforming the majority of the world’s population into vampires. Humans are now an endangered, second-class species – forced into hiding as they are hunted and farmed for vampire consumption to the brink of extinction.

The "new normal" is sharply and amusingly depicted as being eerily similar to current living with the important difference that the populace go about their business at night and enjoy shots of blood in their coffee. Aging, famine, and disease have been eradicated, however sunlight is lethal. There is also still a class system, with destitute vampires who cannot afford a regular fix of blood turning into violent, deformed creatures called "subsiders".

The vampires' insatiable appetite for blood has driven the residual human population to the point of extinction and left the blood supply almost exhausted. Enter Edward Dalton (Ethan Hawke), a scientist working for a massive pharmaceutical conglomerate headed by the evil Charles Bromley (Sam Neill). His job is to find a blood substitute to ward off mass starvation. Dalton secretly sympathizes with the remaining humans and  hopes that his work will result in their persecution being halted. After connecting with some human survivors, he realizes that there may be an even more radical solution to the problem. However, not every solution is profitable. - from imdb.

The movie casts Ethan Hawke (Gattaca) as scientist Edward Dalton, Sam Neill(Jurassic Park) as greedy Charles Bromley and William Defoe (Spiderman) as the vampire-turned-human Elvis.
