Like the first two TAKEN films, DAY SHIFT has a plot where an expert hunter must rescue family members from hostile forces. Otherwise, though, it’s an ultra-violent, bloody, gruesome action film with a high body count. At one point, Bud’s friend “Big” John shows up with a powerful machine gun to mow down dozens of vampires. DAY SHIFT also has a lot of bad language, including ‘f’ words and several strong profanities. This is definitely excessive and unacceptable “entertainment”.

DAY SHIFT, an action horror film streaming on Netflix, stars Jamie Foxx as a vampire hunter in modern Los Angeles who must save his wife and daughter from a powerful vampire who is intent on to create an army of vampires and take control of the city. DAY SHIFT is an over the top, ultra-violent and gruesome action film about murdering vampires and rescuing a family, with constant bad language.
The Move opens with Jamie Foxx’s character, Bud Jablonski, posing as a pool cleaner with his own business, getting out of his van and into a house. Immediately, he encounters an elderly, evil vampire who attacks him. A bloody fight ensues, with Bud emptying numerous rounds from his shotgun into the vampire. Finally, he succeeds in killing her.
Bud makes money selling the teeth and artifacts of the vampires he kills. However, he might make more money if he could get back into the Vampire Hunters Union/Guild.
After killing the elderly vampire, Bud visits his daughter, Paige, who is now living with his ex-wife, Jocelyn, in their old home. Jocelyn informs Bud that they owe money for Paige’s private school tuition and to get Paige braces. She says that if Bud can’t get his $10,000 by Monday, she and Paige will leave Los Angeles and move to Florida to live with Jocelyn’s mother.
Returning to the Vampire Hunters Guild would make it easier for Bud to earn that much money. So he asks his hunter friend, “Big” John Elliott, to help him rejoin the guild. The guild leader, however, hates Bud. Thus, he establishes two restrictions for Bud. First, it limits him to hunting vampires only during the day. Second, to watch over him and make sure he doesn’t break any rules, he assigns a young guild recruit and trainee named Seth, who works in the accounting office and would like to stay there.
Bud and Seth go vampire hunting. By chance, they encounter two notorious brothers hunting vampires, and the four men find and brutally destroy an unusual nest of vampires.
After returning from the day’s lucrative hunt, Bud receives a call from a powerful vampire named Audrey. Audrey threatens Bud’s ex-wife and daughter, as the elderly vampire he killed was actually Audrey’s own daughter. Audrey had to leave her daughter in Eastern Europe to come to America, but when she finally returned to pick up her daughter, her daughter had become an elderly vampire.
Bud rushes to his ex-wife but arrives too late. He runs to Seth for help in saving his family but finds that Seth has been attacked and has become a vampire. However, Seth agrees to help Bud, and they recruit an outcast vampire named Heather that Bud has met. The three launch an assault on Audrey’s fortress, but they are vastly outnumbered.
