Although vampire movies have been done to death, it is nice to stumble across one that isn’t as stereotypical as the others.
In 2019, lead vampire hematologist Edward Dalton’s work is sidetracked by human survivors led by former vampire “Elvis”, who has a cure that can save the human species.
Daybreakers takes a new approach to vampirism which seems more… I can’t say realistic since it is completely science fiction, but given that it is a disease and diseases spread, it seems more logical. Most other films in the genre portray vampires as a tiny population living in hiding, but in this world, the human population has been reduced to nearly 5% of its original number.
That makes sense to me since the monsters are supposed to be stronger, faster and host to voracious appetites. What else could happen with creatures like that?
Meanwhile, vampires are on every corner, in every home and are the new dominant species on the planet. Humans are hunted and farmed for blood by a massive corporation. The only problem the new creatures face is the dwindling blood supply. When deprived of their only food source, the vampires devolve into sub dwelling monsters more like humanoid bats with no reason or logic left, feeding on anything that moves, human and vampire alike.
