Synopsis STAKE LAND does exhibit a painterly eye and feel for performance...3 stars out of 4 -- Director Jim Mickle, who co-wrote the film with his star Nick Damici, has crafted a good-looking, well-played and atmospheric apocalyptic vision.[A] horrifying, exquisitely rendered portrait of catastrophe that has the potential to become one of the year's sleepers, reaching beyond its horror base to fans of well-wrought, dystopian drama.[U]nusually taut....[With] an unstable atmosphere of lurking horror.3 stars out of 5 -- Part gothic action-fantasy, part elegy for a world gone to hell....[It] displays a sharp eye for detail...An orphaned teenager joins a stoic vampire hunter and a desperate group of survivors as they search for a safe haven in a land overrun by monstrous bloodsuckers and ruthless fundamentalists intent on taking over the United States. His entire family slaughtered by vampires, terrified teen Martin (Connor Paolo) is rescued from certain death by a mysterious vampire hunter named Mister (Nick Damici), who trains him how to wield a wooden stake as they wander the wastelands in search of survivors. Before long, the duo is joined by conflicted nun Sister (Kelly McGillis), resourceful youngster Willie (Sean Nelson), and a pregnant teenager (Danielle Harris) looking for a safe place to give birth. With supplies running low and safe houses hard to come by, the group sets their sights on a place known as New Eden, the last stronghold of humanity. But getting there won't be easy because the crazed fundamentalists who travel the roads by day are even more dangerous than the evil bloodsuckers who stalk the darkness.
