Reviews

Time Out - Joshua Rothkopf
A darkly stylish horror film.
75
Charlotte Observer - Lawrence Toppman
Daybreakers is more serious, from its A-list cast to its political commentary, with blood as a metaphor for oil. Like the best genre films, it has something on its mind.
70
Arizona Republic - Bill Goodykoontz
Daybreakers isn't a great film, but it's a good one, and in a market oddly lousy with vampire tales, it's an original.
70
Chicago Reader - Unnamed
Just when it seemed as if the vampire narrative had degenerated into terminal suckitude, along comes this gleefully gory little gem.
67
Austin Chronicle - Kimberley Jones
It’s a little bit silly – as is Dafoe’s Kentucky-fried cowboy mechanic named Elvis – but silly is fun. In fact, one wishes it were sillier still.
