Posted by Glennis Byron on April 15, 2011 in News tagged with , ,

Director Jim Mickle’s vampire thriller Stake Land follows a group of humans fighting against a vampirism epidemic that threatens to consume the world. Stake Land features Danielle Harris, Kelly McGillis, Michael Cerveris. Release date 17 June 2011 (UK) and in the US it has already been shown at the Woodstock Film Festival and is set for general release 22 April. Here’s the story synopsis from the official website:

In a fierce, alternative vision of America’s bleak future, a young boy is about to learn how cruel the world can be. Martin was a normal teenage boy before the country collapsed in an empty pit of economic and political disaster.

And from the ashes rose a new breed of terror. A vampire epidemic has swept across what is left of the nation’s abandoned towns and cities, and it’s up to Mister, a death dealing, rogue vampire hunter, to get Martin safely north to Canada, the continent’s New Eden.

Welcome to Stake Land, kid…

There’s also a fundamentalist militia group called The Brethren led by Jebedia Loven (Michael Cerveris) that interprets the plague as the Lord’s work.Yes, we’ve definitely been here before, but the the official teaser trailer nevertheless looks quite interesting:
