On February 5, 2010, I saw the trailer for Stake Land (2010) on The House of the Devil (2009) DVD. There’s no release date, as of yet, so I’ve posted it here in order to keep track of it until the powers that be set up an account on Twitter or a page on Facebook or some other way, for those of us who are interested, to follow its release.
The teaser definitely grabbed my attention and I love the logline, “A Road Movie With Teeth.”
It’s directed by Jim Mickle; co-written by Nick Damici and Jim Mickle; and stars Connor Paolo, Nick Damici, Kelly McGillis and Danielle Harris.
Here’s the teaser:
Here’s the synopsis:
In Jim Mickle’s new film, Stake Land, a young boy (Paolo) is about to learn how cruel the world can become. Martin was a normal teenager before the country collapsed in an empty pit of disaster, and a vampire epidemic swept across the nation’s abandoned towns and cities. It’s up to Mister (Damici), a death dealing, rogue vampire hunter, to get Martin to safety. Armed with a trunk full of wooden stakes and a desperate will to stay alive, Mister and Martin make their way through locked down towns, recruiting fellow travelers along the way. A devout nun (McGillis) joins the small team of survivors. She faces a crisis of faith during the vampire bloodshed, ultimately taking up arms to do battle with her newly formed family unit.
As with his hit, MULBERRY STREET, Jim Mickle creates a dark and terrifying world, although this time it is fully stocked with the most evil vampires in recent film history. STAKE LAND is a gritty, post-apocalyptic road movie with teeth!
