Stake Land – first trailer

Stake Land quad
You may be forgiven for thinking that Stake Land is a cheap cash-in on Zombieland. Male teen voiceover, grizzled mentor, cute girl, and the world gone to hell in a handbasket, now overrun by vampires but without an A list cast.

Except, watching the trailer you get a really good feeling of a post-apocalyptic world, far less fun than Zombieland and much closer to the nihilistic tone of the novel “I Am Legend”.

Synopsis:

A young boy (Connor Paolo, Gossip Girl) is about to learn how cruel the world can become. Martin was a normal teenager before the country collapsed in an empty pit of disaster, and a vampire epidemic swept across the nation’s abandoned towns and cities. It’s up to Mister (Nick Damici, Mulberry Street, World Trade Center), a death dealing, rogue vampire hunter, to get Martin to safety. Armed with a trunk full of wooden stakes and a desperate will to stay alive, Mister and Martin make their way through locked down towns, recruiting fellow travelers along the way. Among them are a devout nun (Kelly McGillis, The Accused, Top Gun) and a pregnant teen (Danielle Harris, Halloween, Halloween 2)…

As someone who pretty much adores any kind of vampire movie, this looks pretty promising.

Stake Land opens in the UK on June 17th.
