Martin was a normal teenage boy before the country collapsed in an empty pit of economic and political disaster. 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.Written by
In a near future, the North America is an anarchic country after a vampire apocalypse. The teenager Martin (Connor Paolo) is preparing to travel with his parents when they are attacked by a vampire. Martin is rescued by the stranger Mister (Nick Damici) and after killing the vampire, they head to the north expecting to reach the New Eden, former Canada.
Along their journey through the destroyed country, they rescue and befriend other survivors and have to fight not only against the vampires, but also a dangerous brotherhood of fanatic religious members led by the insane Jebedia Loven (Michael Cerveris).
The unknown and melancholic road-movie "Stake Land" is a little gem to be discovered, with a dramatic story of a vampire epidemic in USA. The plot is a combination of "The Omega Man" and "The Road" with "The Walking Dead" and "Mad Max" and really works very well. Most of the recent horror movies has shallow stories with one dimension characters, but in "Stake Land:, the characters are well developed and there is no corny redemption or salvation for most of them. If you enjoy horror B- movies with lots of gore, naked teenagers and clichés, you will certainly be disappointed with "Stake Land". My vote is eight.
Title (Brazil): "Stake Land – Anoitecer Violento" ("Stake Land – Violent Nightfall")
