I have no idea what the Daybreakers title sequence looks like.
Every creative application of After Effects relies on a synergy of numerous effects and concepts. Until you are able to think conversationally with After Effects, knowing most of the application's subtle abilities and have a large and instantly recoverable visual vocabulary of effects and workflows, every project you undertake wants a plugin or a recipe provided in a tutorial.

From what I saw on the trailer for this film the titles are a modified version of George Peolvoy's Flowing Title tutorial posted on Creative Cow about 10 years ago. You'll find the tutorial here.
The glass effect on the type can be duplicated using layer effects in Photoshop and / or then applying those layer effects to your type layer directly in AE. You'll find a bunch of those tutorials by doing a simple Google search for Glass Text Photoshop.
There is no one click, one plug-in solution, but if you integrate the layer effects, a displacement map, some compound blur, and a little position keyframing + motion blur you should be able to duplicate the effect exactly. George's tutorial should get you started. If I remember right the project files were for AE 4.1 so they probably won't open in CS4.
Thanks man, it will help me a lot! thanks Godbless
