In the highly acclaimed Stake Land, hailed by some critics as "the American horror film of the year", the US has become a lost nation. When an epidemic of vampirism strikes, humans find themselves on the run. Cities are tombs and survivors cling together in rural pockets, fearful of nightfall. When his family is slaughtered, young Martin (Connor Paolo) is taken under the wing of a grizzled, wayward hunter whose new prey are the undead. Simply known as Mister (Nick Damici), he takes Martin under his wing on a journey through the locked-down towns of America's heartland, battling against not only feral vampires but also the fanatical savagery of the right wing religious cult known as The Brotherhood, in search of the fabled safe haven, New Eden.

This is a good film, not the average zombie film, a boy and Mr as the boy knows him, works realy well looking after each other. I felt for the pregnant girls demize, but the ending is good, leaves you thinking normality might be achieved.

This film is simply excellent. The acting, casting, cinematography, score....all strong. Was great to see that a film, let alone a horror film, can be produced without ridiculous amounts of CGI, (I am legend, Blade 2/3 etc), to undermine it. A simple story about survival, humanity and hope without ever being heavy about it's tone. Light's off, feet-up, enjoy!

This is not your average horror vampire movie, it is on a similar premise to Zombie Land, the movie kicks in straight away no build up needed, a simple plot (I get the I am Legend and Zombie Land mixed together impression). Beautifully shot in some very nice wooded areas, the soundtrack adds to the tension and serious tone of the movie. The movie feels like it is very long without ever leaving you feeling bored or losing interest. It is quite violent and questions are left unanswered, a simplistic story line has more effect on the audience allowing them to put the pieces together themselves. I do not think I could compare this to a certain type of horror movie, Zombie Land would be the best comparison but they are too different. This is a must watch movie, for horror fans or anyone looking for some with that unique feel to it.

its got bite
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 01/11/2011 17:50:29
thoroughly enjoyed this film, a little bit different and at lower end of budget but get pass marks from me. assortment of characters crossing america to a safe haven from zombie/vampires and mad religious cult. a bleak film with plenty gore, a world away from mainstream hollywood vamps, recommended to proper film buffs.

Vamps suck, but this movie doesn't!

The Road meets 28 Days Later meets Zombieland, Stake Land is a bleak, bleaky film, with awesomely scary vampires and even scarier human cults. It has no problem taking the long route, the back road, if you will, when exploring vampires, but it's totally worth it. Dark, compelling, and with some great action scenes, this is one of the best vamp flicks going at the moment.

"..VERY GOOD VAMPIRE FILM.."
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 26/10/2011 21:21:17
There are so many vampire movies out there some are bad others just lead the way like Stake land, this is a very cool very well made horror, its a bit like the walking dead but with vampires, the story follows a group of survivors who are trying to find the way to safety from the world becoming blood thirsty undead and psycho religious cannibals! The effects are great plenty of bloody violence for gore fans, there has not really been any vampire movies this year and this is by far the best one in a while, worth picking up if youre a horror fan, it may not be the most original one ever but its worth the stakes!
