(mbc.net) In 2019 vampires make up 95% of the world's population, while humans account for the remaining 5%.  As human blood becomes more scarce, scientists are discovering that blood depraved vampires slowly transform into so-called subsiders: increasingly aggressive creatures with bat-like characteristics.

Hematologist Edward Dalton (Ethan Hawke) and his colleagues at the Bromley Marks pharmaceutical company are attempting to synthesize a human blood substitute, with little success.  When Dalton discovers a way to transform vampires back into humans, he believes it is an ideal solution.  Unfortunately the world's vampires will not give up immortality willfully.

Daybreakers earned $51 million at the box office, more than twice its budget.
