Revisiting the heyday of department stores and five-and-dimes

OVERRATED: 'Daybreakers' (2009)

With "Twilight" mercifully drawing to a close, fang-ophiles looking for cheap bloodsucking thrills should tread carefully while considering this film, streaming on Netflix. Though the movie earned praise for flipping the premise on its head by imagining a society dominated by vampires, ultimately it grows progressively sillier as it struggles to live up to its ideas, wasting Ethan Hawke and an oddly wooden Willem Dafoe.
