Martin was a normal teenage boy before the country collapsed in an empty pit of economic and political disaster.

At 1:13':27" Martin is on a bus looking at a newspaper. The main article is about martial law declared in the US. The photo for that article is actually a photo from the G8 summit riots, July 20-22 2001, Genova, Italy. See more »

I saw this movie because I love post-apocalyptic movies. The idea of a world with less human beings meddling with it always looks enticing. Its the same reason why we take vacations in remote locations.
First thing you will notice about Stake Land is it looks great. I am not much familiar with the cast except Connor Paolo. The actors act naturally which looks great in a film such as this. The plot is simple. It is a story of survivors of a vampire epidemic. But its the execution of the plot which is why this movie is so good. The director knows what he can and cant do. 10 out of 10 for the director's efforts.
Lastly, I wont say its a different movie than the rest of vampire movies coming out these days. But Stake Land should be watched because it has the ability to suck you in its environment within the first 10 minutes. And trust me it never lets it go.
