Check This Out: Super Creepy Daybreakers Vampire Poster
I was driving home the other day and passed a bus shelter with a few posters in it. One of them was this very creepy one for Daybreakers with a vampire hanging upside-down staring right at me. I saw it again later on and it gave me the chills. Bravo to whoever designed this poster at Lionsgate, it's one of the most effective vampire ads I've ever seen. It may sound cliche, but looking at this poster actually made me want to see Daybreakers even more than I did before - and I've been excited as hell to see this since the first trailer hit. I just want to see this creepy vampire in action on the big screen. Daybreakers hits theaters in early January.
In the year 2019, a plague has transformed most every human into vampires. Faced with a dwindling blood supply, the fractured dominant race plots their survival; meanwhile, a researcher (Ethan Hawke) works with a covert band of vampires (Willem Dafoe, Claudia Karvan) on a way to save humankind.
Daybreakers is written and directed by Australian brothers Michael and Peter Spierig, who previously directed a 2003 sci-fi horror film titled Undead. This was shot in Australia in late 2007 and has been in post-production since. Lionsgate is bringing Daybreakers to theaters on January 8th, 2010 next year.

Very subtle and good for NYC where they post these things everywhere and in the dark. It' scare the shit out of me if I was walking around there at night and ran into it. Although if I'mw alking around NYC at night, I'm probably a bit braver than that. lol For a daytime poster that might hang up at a theater, meh.

Genuinely creepy. I can't wait for this movie! I can't imagine seeing this up in very many places though.

This actually sounds like a vampire movie i could get behind. It's kind of like what would happen long after I Am Legend ends (the book, not the shitty movie). I usually hate all things vampire, but this sounds cool.

That is scary as hell. I will be seeing this. Thank god it is not another Twilight. I swear I am going to beat the crap out of the next tween that tells me how great Twilight is.

sounds like a good story, but the cast is what really draws me in and will get me to the theater

Good cast, R rated, creepy posters, good trailers... this is sure to disappoint me considering I'm expecting it to be great.

Nice, I much prefer vampires in the vein of Near Dark, 30 Days of Night, and Lost Boys. I don't like brooding, angsty, emotionally dysfunctional heartthrob vampires. Especially ones that walk around in the day, have mysterious superpowers and twinkle like they've been Bedazzled.

cant wait for the film, this poster has really got me excited for it. just a random thought popped into my head, i cud be off the mark but the song used for the first trailer is running up that hill by placebo. and the video for that song is shot mostly upside down. is it possible that the idea for the poster was gotten from the song? the link for the song is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4KEEXyRL0qE&feature=related i get an errie creppy feeling from the video, just like i do from the poster!

Scary poster that's for sure.

Surely this movie can't fail to be good. I hope to god it is anyway, those Twilight movies have got me seriously considering walking away from Vampire movies. I need Daybreakers to be good. Need it goddamitt!!!!

Lol @ #10 "Bedazzled". Lol Good shit. This looks legit.

why do they always portray most vampires with bad teeth, youd think vampires would take great care of their teeth..
harrison on Dec 19, 2009
# 17 I was just wondering the same. His fangs look pretty healthy and strong tho, and if he died a human with shitty teeth, I think he just has to deal with it as a vampire.

Nobody seems to comment on the fact the vampire is wearing a suit. Vamp-yuppie? Nosfera-Suit?
greg on Dec 20, 2009
#17-#18 - This is covered in the story... This poster is just one portrayal of the vampires in the story... #16 - Hell yeah ... is LEGIT... Let the blood fly Last event I was at, this was the ONLY movie that really got me PUMPED UP... WOOHOO
