Ethan Hawke plays Edward Dalton, a hematologist in the year 2019, in which a plague has transformed much of the world’s population into vampires. Edward is employed by Bromley Marks, a pharmaceutical company that is the chief supplier of blood for the American population, which is operated by Charles Bromley (Sam Neill). As the human population nears extinction, vampires must capture and farm every remaining human for their blood, or find a blood substitute before time runs out. When deprived of blood for extended periods of time, vampires lose their human-like characteristics and begin to transform into winged bat-like monsters called “sub-siders,” those of which have diminished mental capacity and no ability to speak and are driven strictly by their impulse to feed. However, a covert group of humans makes a remarkable discovery, one which has the power to save the human race. After being saved by Edward, Audrey (Claudia Karvan) – the group’s leader – brings him in on the secret: there is a cure to vampirisim. One of the group, Elvis (Willem Dafoe), is a human who was cured of being a vampire. Following a car crash in which he was thrown through the windshield, and into a river, he was exposed to sunlight by accident for a very short time before hitting the water, thus extinguishing the fire. Upon emerging, he discovered that he was human again. Edward attempts to replicate this by using a fermentation vat with an added trap door to initiate controlled sunlight exposure, concluding that the blood needs to be exposed to sunlight while in the human body for the treatment to be effective. After several controlled exposures using the vat’s air vent to suck out the fire, the experiment is successful and Edward is cured.

    Absoulute rubbish! Belive me. Put together Interview with a vampire (good movie) and Twilight (bad movie) and you get this. They’re just hoping to make money, because everybody liked Twilight. Even Daybreakers leading characters name is Edward!
    Just save your time
