Story


This January, Lionsgate takes vampires in a new direction with the futuristic sci-fi thriller, "Daybreakers". The year is 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. It's all up to Edward Dalton, a vampire researcher who refuses to feed on human blood, to perfect a blood substitute that might sustain vampires and spare the few remaining humans. But time and hope are running out - until Ed meets Audrey, a human survivor who leads him to a startling medical breakthrough. Armed with knowledge that both humans and vampires will kill for, Ed must battle his own kind in a deadly struggle that will decide the fate of the human race.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..Daybreakers is a stylish but unavoidably silly sci-fi vampire thriller shot in that Matrix/Gattaca futurescape of Australia...”
by Roger Moore [Orlando Sentinel]
“..Daybreakers bursts with clever ideas and resonant concepts..”
by Keith Phipps [Onion AV Club]
“..Daybreakers works another late shift at this genre factory, and turns in a pretty solid effort...”
by Rick Groen [Globe and Mail]
