Day Shift (2022)

Sometimes you're in the mood for a silly vampire movie with bad acting, passable jokes, and special effects with physics that only exist in movies and Day Shift fills that role perfectly. 🧛😂 It's not going to win an Oscar and that's OK, it's still an enjoyable viewing that will keep you entertained for a bit.

For a popcorn movie it works in a surprising amount of world-building. The 'vampire hunting union' in the movie is interesting in that helps to set up a bigger world that helps to easily allow for more movies even if the stars of Day Shift don't return for future projects. Plus they already established that the union is international so if future projects allow for bigger budgets then it can naturally explain why an LA based movie is suddenly globe-trotting. It also throws in some of its own vampire mythology which, along with a few scenes that aren't fully explained, it seems to be priming itself already for a sequel.
"Day Shift" sounds like a wild ride with that mix of action, fantasy, and horror. Plus, having Jamie Foxx in the lead role adds some serious star power. The plot about an LA vampire hunter trying to hustle for his kid's tuition and braces is a unique twist, and it's got that gritty, modern feel to it.

If you're into checking out the best recent movies, this one should definitely be on your radar. I mean, who doesn't love a good supernatural action flick? Grab some popcorn and catch it when it hits the screens. It's bound to be an adrenaline-pumping experience.
