Strong horror violence
2 November 2011
"The American horror film of the year" (TWITCH FILM), Stake Land is a heart stopping road trip to the outer edge by way of a blood drenched jugular. America is lost in the darkness and decay of a Vampire epidemic as survivors cling together in rural pockets, fearful of sunset and the vicious feral beasts that define their living nightmares. When seventeen year-old Martin (Connor Paolo, Gossip Girl) is orphaned after a marauding vampire destroys his family he is taken under the dusty wing of a battle-weary drifter called Mister (Nick Damici, Mulberry Street). Bonded by a glimmer of hope, they forge a formidable fighting team and travel from town to fortified town, joined by a displaced nun (Kelly McGillis, Witness), a pregnant woman (Danielle Harris, Halloween) and a disillusioned Marine (Sean Nelson, Fresh) in search of a far-off frontier called New Eden. Surrounded by hungry vampires and the opposing force of a fundamentalist militia known as The Bretheren the stakes are well and truly raised for a bloody battle royal in what has been audaciously described as "The Road on supernatural steroids." (NEW YORK TIMES).
