With the throng of vampire movies and franchises invading our screens and mindsets, the most notable being Twilight, you can often overlook unique and compelling thrillers such as Daybreakers; in spite of the fact it is yet another vampire film.

Being a film that was made on Australia’s Gold Coast, written and directed by Australian brothers Michael and Peter Spierig and stars Claudia Karvan and Michael Dorman… you guessed it, Australians, I managed to sit down and have a chat about the film ahead of its release on Blu-Ray and DVD.

We managed to look at the making of the film, the story behind it and what it was like working with other notable actors, including Ethan Hawke and Willem Dafoe.

Sink your fangs into it. I apologise- I just had to include one vampire related pun.
