I was a pretty big fan of Michael and Peter Spierig's over-the-top 2003 horror/comedy "Undead" back in the day, going as far as to import a relatively expensive Region 4 DVD long before it arrived on American shores. Yeah, sometimes I can be pretty pathetic like that. And while I do believe the film had its share of problems, the good points, in this geek's humble opinion, greatly outweighed the bad. Besides, it's not everyday you get to watch an gun-crazy Australian redneck battle a flesh-eating zombie fish. I'm just saying.
This convoluted introduction serves to explain why, exactly, I'm pretty excited about the brothers' upcoming vampiric dystopia flick "Daybreakers," which is tentatively scheduled for release on January 8, 2010. The picture, which stars Ethan Hawke, genre veteran Willem Dafore, and the always cool Sam Neil, takes place in a world where blood-suckers are the majority and the human (aka lunch) are the minority.
Color me jazzed and pretty pumped. The trailer is, for lack of a better term, solid, and it doesn't hurt that they utilized Placebo's cover of Kate Bush's "Running Up That Hill," either. Here's hoping Lionsgate treats this potentially awesome flick appropriately.
