DIRECTED BY Michael Spierig, Peter Spierig

It’s the year 2019, and a plague has turned almost all of humanity into vampires. The few remaining humans left are hunted and farmed for their precious blood, but a crisis looms as the supply of blood begins to run out. Ethan Hawke stars as a vamp researcher trying to find a blood substitute, who gets pulled into the plot of rebel human forces (led by Willem Dafoe and Isabel Lucas) to make all the vampires human again. Futuristic vampire dystopia? We are so there!
