Daybreakers 2010...

I have always felt there are not enough really good vampire movies out there. I'm hoping that all the vampire overload from Twilight doesn't make the general public sick of vampire movies. It happens so many times, especially with music that when you hear a song on the radio over and over again, you grow tired of it... even if it is a great song. It happened to Hootie and the Blowfish with their CD Cracked Rear View Mirror. So many songs on that CD were played to death by radio that it actually hurt the band on their following CD's... any one even remember any of their other CD'S? That's the point. If you visit this site often, you know my love for vampire movies. I'm not a fan of campy horror, but interesting vampire movies with good acting and a good story line are hard to find. Bela Lugosi's Dracula set the bar very high for the genre. I love traditional vampires, but I do appreciate writers and directors who are willing to explore the genre and bring us new and exciting twist to their vampires... as long as it is within reason. For one thing, there must be a way to kill the vampire... good must overcome the evil. That's why movies like From Dusk To Dawn, Blade, Underworld are such good movies to me. I've enjoyed both John Carpenter's Vampire movies, 30 Days of Night was great in my mind, and Bram Stocker's Dracula with Gary Oldham was a good remake of the original. However, there are so many out there in the vampire genre that are not quality. This leads me to Daybreakers...

This movie has some really quality actors in it with Sam Neill, Willem Defoe, and Ethan Hawke supporting a decent looking movie... at least from the trailer. A virus causes most of the general population to become vampires and that would cause there to be a shortage of human blood in that case. There seems to be battles raging between different vampire clams with the Sam Neill character being the "ruler" of a one of the clans. The trailer looks very promising. The movie comes to theaters Jan. 8th, 2010 and I plan to see it then. Check out the trailer as well as the link to the movies website... I think you will really find this trailer very interesting!

A malicious plague has befallen the human race, transforming the majority of the Earth's population into vampires and draining the world of an increasingly precious resource: blood. Now, it's up to two brothers (Ethan Hawke and Willem Dafoe) to decide what happens next. As the human population nears zero, will the vampires be forced to feast on the few men and women who remain? Or could science hold the key to a less destructive solution?
