Every January a few really bad horror movies creep into theaters and Daybreakers looked like it might be one of them, but reviews are a little better than expected so far.
"...another recent, inventive what-if? splatterfest..."
— Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune
"The intriguing premise ... ends as so many movies do these days, with fierce fights and bloodshed."
— Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"After the dreary imitativeness of their horror-comedy debut Undead, the Spierig brothers find themselves once again on derivative ground with Daybreakers..."
— Nick Schager, Slant Magazine
"The best thing you can say about the movie is that it pours some very old blood into a new plastic bottle."
— Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"...squanders Ethan Hawke and Willem Dafoe..."
— Nick Pinkerton, Village Voice
