Daybreakers by Michael and Peter Spierig, 2009

with Ethan Hawke, Willem Dafoe, Sam Neill, Claudia Karvan, Michael Dorman, Isabel Lucas, Vince Colosimo, Callum McLean, Harriet Minto-Day, Jarrad Pon

"In a world 10 years into the future, vampires make up the vast majority of the population with only 5% of the human race remaining. This presents particular challenges as the vampires' food supply - human blood - is dwindling and rationing is now the norm. There is growing evidence that vampires deprived of an adequate blood supply are themselves evolving into wild, vile creatures that attack anyone and anything in order to survive. Dr. Edward Dalton, a vampire and hematologist who works for a pharmaceutical firm, has been working on finding an artificial blood supply that will meet the vampire society's needs. He is sympathetic to humans and sees his work as a way of alleviating their suffering but his views on finding a solution change considerably when he meets someone who found a way to transform himself from being a vampire to again take human form."

A vampire story. Again. I love those stories, as they are created based on rules that people keep on changing according to their needs of a story, and happening in the present time, sometimes the past, rarely the far future, and they are happening among us, on earth, not on a different planet with some circumstances that would just make us feel detached from it. And the goth-ism attached to it is always some sort of prestigious, classy. Attractive. Although this movie made a point not following my last point. It's modern, futuristic actually (inspired at some points by Matrix?) and vampire are just like you and me. Not fancy. And also, humans are considered as an endangered specie that need to be protect in order for the vampires to survive. Them the story goes on. I liked it. A little gore, but what, it's about blood.
