Such a bleak post-apocalyptic horror film. Granted, when you say "post-apocalyptic" usually it's not all sunshine and rainbows but Stake Land is pretty darn depressing. Still, it takes a different take on the whole vampire/zombie thing - and a it's a good twist on a tired genre. Worth checking out.

from the worn out vampire genre comes a totally different type of movie. a really slow movie at that. not for all lovers of horror. it`s almost as if the director intentionally made it so. this movie is more about the man (mister as he`s called), and the boy he rescues then teaches to be a vamp killer. it takes them along a journey among friendly and not so friendly humans with a few vampires thrown in for good measure. my two star rating is kind as i was a little disappointed throughout.

A lone survivalist, known only as Mister, teams up with a young boy, a disillusioned nun and a pregnant young woman on a trek north to Canada, searching for the rumored safe haven of New Eden. Along the way they also have to contend with brutal religious fundamentalists, who are more of a danger than the vampires, who they see as messengers of the Lord. This is a vampire film with a heart and a soul: Despite its straight-ahead vampire killing action, there's plenty of time for characterization and the development of subthemes; director Jim Mickle and writer Nick Damici work …
