Plot Summary

In a world 10 years into the future, vampires make up the vast majority of the population with only 5% of the human race remaining. This presents particular challenges as the vampires' food supply - human blood - is dwindling and rationing is now the norm. There is growing evidence that vampires deprived of an adequate blood supply are themselves evolving into wild, vile creatures that attack anyone and anything in order to survive. Dr. Edward Dalton, a vampire and hematologist who works for a pharmaceutical firm, has been working on finding an artificial blood supply that will meet the vampire society's needs. He is sympathetic to humans and sees his work as a way of alleviating their suffering but his views on finding a solution change considerably when he meets someone who found a way to transform himself from being a vampire to again take human form.

Trivia The makers of the movie hosted a contest in Worth1000.com (famous photo manipulation-contest site) to come up with images of how the world would look if nearly everyone were a vampire. See more »
Goofs When we first "see" Edward Dalton, it's as an empty collar and tie in his car's rear-view mirror - as a vampire, he casts no reflection. A bit later, his right ear feels strange, so he pulls down his sun visor to check it out in the mirror there, and he's able to see himself. However, if you look closely there is a video camera in the sun visor that then projects the video in the spot where a mirror would be. See more »
