ADD Film Review: Daybreakers

A few years from now the world will suffer a vampire pandemic that will leave most of the inhabitants of Planet Earth, blood suckers (chain smoking, and dressed like they just walked out of a Mickey Spillane novel, blood suckers, I might add).  Society has adapted and the vamp majority has acclimated it self to night time living-death-life .  The only real problem is that the human's are dwindling, and the blood supply is running short.  A big company has been farming humans for their plasma, but since the live stock is almost gone, a substitute must be found.  You see, if a vamp goes with out for a while, his or her fashion sense flies out the window, and he or she becomes a crazed Nosferatu-like beastie
It seems that there is a resistance group of humans (along with some sympathetic vamps) who are not only fighting to reclaim the world,  they've also discovered a cure to vampirism.

Will the good guys win?  Will Willem Dafoe chew up the scenery?  Do you even care?

Suffice to say, this is a loud movie; things blow up, and there is a lot of violence.  It's perfect mindless fun, just don't expect too much, and you'll probably enjoy it.

Awesome. Yeah thought this looked pretty good.

I plan to check this one out soon when it hits my cable channels. I'm glad to see Willem has a goatee in it; I like him better with hair on his face.

Whatever happened to just buying cattle blood at the butcher shop like Angel and Spike?

There are many gay undertones in this film Pax. When a certain vampire is trying to cure him/her self of being a vampire, they are exposed to the sun and burst into flames, making them “Flamers” then they put out their flame and have ‘converted’ back to what they consider normal. See….GAY! ;P

I really liked this film, even though I don’t believe in a vampire cure, you are who you are, darnit! ;P

Sometimes we all just need a little mindless vampire action!
