Storyline Heading
Ed Dalton is a vampire hematologist who's charged with inventing a human blood substitute before the human food supply runs out and vampires starve to death. Unlike most others of his kind, Dalton is morally conflicted about his condition. Though he craves human blood, he refuses to drink it, gradually weakening himself on a second-rate diet of animal blood.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Above Average This intriguing premise, alas, ends as so many movies do these days, with fierce fights and bloodshed.

USA Today Full Review
Above Average Daybreakers is entertaining, though not quite up to the standards of 28 Days Later. It is a happy alternative to the tepid appeal of pre-teen vamps and werewolves. But why make a vampire movie lacking the allure of the enticing fiends?

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 88 moviegoers:
These reviews don't look very good, but actually it's fairly common to see these mixed reviews on horror movies.
TEENS:About a third loved it, another third, or less, rated it average to above average and the rest rated it low to very low.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:A few of the males loved it but most were somewhat to very disappointed. The female reviews are not great. Close to half rated it above average, but most were disappointed.
ADULTS:Adult males rated it the highest, but their reviews aren't all that great. Nearly half were disappointed. Female reviews are disappointing, but not terrible. Only a small percentage loved it, but a decent number rated it above average. Unfortunately, many rated it low to very low.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
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.
