And now back to the novel

Oh, but just before I do… watched Daybreakers last night, a little post Halloween treat. Killer take on the vamp story. Australian feel to it, but in a good way. Sam Neil wasn’t entirely convincing as the evil corporate sucker, but he played it for camp, always good to see a fine actor enjoying himself. The best thing about the film was the premise, which was smart and tricky and original—the world literally turned upside down as vampires inexorably populate the planet—and the seamlessness of the world created by the Spierig brothers, from a blood-deprived hero chainsmoking to block his cravings to armor plated vehicles set to daylight drive mode—was truly impressive.
