True mumblings, from a junior doctor...


The vampire season continues unabated.

Daybreakers is an interesting take on the vampire story, offering an alternative reason and reality. A plague causes humans to turn into vampires. Whilst this grants them immortality it does make them dependent on the humans for food. Cue a night-time world, with 'subwalks', human 'farms' and blood in everything.

From here on in the action commences and actually well worth the watch. Whilst it isn't going to change the world, it is a good, well structured story, which doesn't try to be everything at once. It gives you enough to be interested, without having to spend too long in monologue explaining the plot.

The blend of horror and thriller is nicely judged. Competent.
