After hearing about Jim Mickle’s STAKE LAND all last year I couldn’t beleive it when the movie played this years Glasgow Film Festival and it was a really enjoyable movie. Stake Land is a post apocalptic movie where instead of turning people into zombies or crazy mad max style maniacs the virus turns humans into vampires, Stake land is a low-fi dark, gritty and at times violent movie which you could say its like Walking Dead but with vampires.
10 days ago the viral campgain for the movie kicked off and we met some of the survivors Belle (Danielle Harris) and Martin(Connor Paolo) in character viral shorts which gave you a little insight on how the pair became survivors during the outbreak,now its time to meet 2 more survivors Jebadia (Michael Cerveris)and Willie (Sean Nelson) and see how they survived.
STAKE LAND came out today in USA and will be out in UK June 17th, the movie stars Connor Paolo, Nick Damici, Kelly McGillis, Danielle Harris, Bonnie Dennison, Marianne Hagan, Chance Kelly, Adam Scarimbolo, and Sean Nelson.
America is a lost nation. When an epidemic of vampirism strikes, humans find themselves on the run from vicious, feral beasts. Cities are tombs and survivors cling together in rural pockets, fearful of nightfall. When his family is slaughtered, young Martin (Gossip Girl’s Connor Paolo) is taken under the wing of a grizzled, wayward hunter (In the Cut’s Nick Damici) whose new prey are the undead. Simply known as Mister, the vampire stalker takes Martin on a journey through the locked-down towns of America’s heartland, searching for a better place while taking down any bloodsuckers that cross their path. Along the way they recruit fellow travellers, including a nun (Kelly McGillis) who is caught in a crisis of faith when her followers turn into ravenous beasts. This ragtag family unit cautiously moves north, avoiding major thoroughfares that have been seized by The Brethren, a fundamentalist militia headed by Jebedia Loven (Tony award-winning actor Michael Cerveris) that interprets the plague as the Lord’s work.
