FILM -- Stake Land

I watched this movie earlier today and was in awe with the atmosphere of the whole film. It's filled with vampires, cannibals and unbalanced humans. To me, this film has raised the bar for vampire/apocalypse films. This film was directed by Jim Mickle and was just released April 22, 2011.








The director Jim Mickle also directed Mulberry Street and I heard that this is a follow to the cult hit. The cast includes Connor Paolo (He's Eric from Gossip Girl), Nick Damici (Who helped write this film), Danielle Harris (She played Jamie Lloyd in Halloween 4&5 ALSO she still look great) and some other recognizable people.

Anyway!! This awesome film is about a teenage boy named Martin and just before the country collapses in an empty pit of political and economic disaster, a vampire epidemic sweeps across whatever is left of the country. The nation is now filled with abandoned towns and cities. Now, it's up to a sly, unnamed vampire hunter to get Martin safely up north to Canada, the continent's "New Eden". I was so impressed with this film.

This film is similar to Zombieland but more serious & kinda similar to The Road but less depression & more horror. I recommend this to EVERYONE, even if you don't like horror. It's an never ending adventure. It has a great cast and awesome music, which surprised everyone being that it's a low budget film. The ONLY thing about this movie that I don't care for is the ending. :| It is semi-disappointing to me, but may not be for you!
