North to New Eden,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Stake Land (DVD)
I guess I was expecting a movie along the lines of Zombieland (which I thoroughly enjoyed too) but "Stake Land" is definitely not a light look at a vampire apocalypse and I sure wasn't disappointed.
Vampires are everywhere and the only thing worse than the creatures are the human scum buckets, taking advantage of a terrible crisis, raping and pillaging wherever they want, or the religious fanatics looking for someone to blame and punish. Our little group of heroes just want to kill all the vampires they possibly can and try to make it safely to New Eden, the sanctuary they have heard of but aren't convinced isn't a myth.
Casting is good (I especially liked Kelly McGillis as Sister, Nick Damici as Mister, and Connor Paolo as Martin). Also, special effects were well done, not over-done.
Dark but not as despairing as The Road, I recommend this to anyone that likes post-apocalyptic or vampire (not cute huggy types) or zombies (these creatures actually reminded me more of zombies than vampires) or horror movies.
