In the year 2019, a plague has transformed almost every human into vampires. Faced with a dwindling blood supply, the fractured dominant race plots their survival; meanwhile, a researcher works with a covert band of vamps on a way to save humankind.
I went and saw this movie primarily because this one of very few Australian movies that is trying to be mainstream instead of art house, and I think that effort deserves to be rewarded. There is nothing really new and different here. This film borrows very heavily from others in the genre, most notably "The Crow", with occasional nods to "The Matrix" and even "Ëquilibrium". However having said that the film looks great (especially considering the very low budget), the action is okay, and the acting is competent. So no one is going to win an Oscar here. So what. Its an entertaining way to pass a couple of hours. Don't expect great feats and you won't be disappointed.
