Hey, it’s The Movie God here.
As you all might be aware, we at Geeks of Doom like to do a little thing called Spoiler Talk from time to time. It is basically a forum where one of us presents a bunch of points about a movie — sometimes good, sometimes bad — and you the reader sound off with your thoughts in the comments section! This is where you can scream at the top of your lungs (as hard as your little fingers can scream) about what you liked, hated, or weren’t too sure of.
Today’s Spoiler Talk brings us Daybreakers, the new futuristic vampire tale that stars Ethan Hawke, Sam Neill, and Willem Dafoe. The movie takes place in the year 2019 and and in a time where most humans have now become vampires as natural evolution would indicate were vampires to actually exist. Because most are now vampires, a crisis is realized when it becomes apparent that there is only enough blood to sustain them for a short time longer. With rations cut thin, the vampires who eat the least begin to develop a much more aggressive nature before actually transforming into evil, wild creature-like beings. It is left up to Dr. Edward Dalton (Hawke), a hematologist, to find a way to create a synthetic blood substitute that can save his people before it’s too late.
Not that it needs to be said…but just in case, this is nothing but spoilers people, so if you don’t want it ruined, do NOT click over!
Without further delay, continue on to our Spoiler Talk, presented by Kevin of Nine, and share what you thought of Daybreakers! [...]
