In 2019, a plague has transformed much of the world’s population into vampires. With the human population headed for extinction, the vampires must farm the surviving humans for their blood. When deprived of blood for extended periods of time, vampires change into winged bat-like monsters called “sub-siders.” The chief supplier of blood for the American population is the pharmaceutical company Bromley Marks, which is headed by Charles Bromley (Sam Neill). Edward Dalton (Ethan Hawke) is a hematologist employed by Bromley Marks.

A covert group of humans discover a cure to vampirism. After being saved by Edward, Audrey (Claudia Karvan) – the group’s leader – brings him in on the secret. One of the group, Elvis (Willem Dafoe), is a human who was cured of being a vampire by being briefly exposed to sunlight then submerged in water.

Meanwhile a convoy of humans — including the human daughter of Charles Bromley, Alison (Isabel Lucas) — is ambushed by a troop of vampires. At Bromley Marks, Charles Bromley attempts to convince her that being a vampire is a better life. She attempts to escape, but is subdued and turned into a vampire by Frankie (Michael Dorman), Edward’s brother. Following her recovery, Alison refuses to drink blood and starts to transform into a sub-sider.

Because the number of attacks by sub-siders has increased, Bromley then orders all sub-siders to be captured and

killed. The execution is performed by dragging the sub-siders into sunlight. Frankie notices that one of the sub-siders is Alison and watches in horror as she burns to death. He then asks Edward’s friend and colleague Chris (Vince Colosimo) to help spread the cure. However, Chris has discovered a blood-substitute and does not want a cure to become widespread. Vampires storm Chris’ house and a battle ensues in which Elvis and Edward escape, but Audrey is captured and brought to Bromley Marks.

In the search for Edward and Elvis, they are found by Frankie, who is slowly becoming a sub-sider. The latter reveals that he turned Edward into a vampire not because of a selfish desire for blood or for company, but because he didn’t want to face Edward’s inevitable death (possibly by being captured and farmed for blood). Frankie initially decides to help them, but his desire for blood causes him to feed on Elvis. In doing so, it is realized that feeding on a former vampire is also a cure and Frankie becomes human again.

Edward turns himself in to Bromley to save Audrey and tries to trick him by telling Bromley he wishes to return to being a vampire and spread the cure. However Bromley is uninterested in a cure, since the blood substitute and it is ready for mass production. Edward then enrages Bromley by saying he was a coward for making Frankie turn Alison and that he couldn’t do it himself. This tricks then infuriates Bromley into feeding on Edward, which cures him. Edward and Audrey then send him downstairs tied to a chair, where a massive group of soldiers is waiting; they feed on him and are cured as well. Edward and Audrey escape downstairs but are cornered by more soldiers. Frankie crashes through the glass doors in Elvis’ Pontiac Trans-Am and saves them, giving Edward and Audrey time to escape by sacrificing himself to the soldiers, thus spreading the cure as the soldiers who feed on him are subsequently fed off of by other vampire soldiers in a massive feeding frenzy.

After the feeding frenzy is over, Frankie is dead and all but six soldiers, who are now human, have been killed. However, the soldiers are killed immediately by Edward’s former friend Chris in an effort to hide all evidence of the cure; Chris is then killed by Elvis to defend Edward and Audrey. Edward, Elvis and Audrey drive away into the sunrise with Edward proclaiming that they now are the cure and will cure any vampire who wishes to be human again.
