Vampirski horror nezavisne produkcije redatelja i jednog od scenarista, Jima Micklea. Mickle je inače režirao dosta dobro prihvaćen horror film Mulberry Street iz 2006. godine. A ništa lošije mu nije prošao ni ovaj film koji je do sada već bio prikazan na nekim filmskim festivalima kao što su Toronto International Film Festival, Woodstock Film Festival, Sitges International Fantastic Film Festival i San Francisco International Film Festival gdje je Stake Land pokupio uglavnom izvrsne kritike. Britanska premijera je predviđena za 17. lipanj 2011.
America is a lost nation. When an epidemic of vampirism strikes, humans find themselves on the run from vicious, feral beasts. Cities are tombs and survivors cling together in rural pockets, fearful of nightfall. When his family is slaughtered, young Martin (Gossip Girl’s Connor Paolo) is taken under the wing of a grizzled, wayward hunter (In the Cut’s Nick Damici) whose new prey are the undead.
Simply known as Mister, the vampire stalker takes Martin on a journey through the locked-down towns of America’s heartland, searching for a better place while taking down any bloodsuckers that cross their path. Along the way they recruit fellow travellers, including a nun (Kelly McGillis) who is caught in a crisis of faith when her followers turn into ravenous beasts. This ragtag family unit cautiously moves north, avoiding major thoroughfares that have been seized by The Brethren, a fundamentalist militia headed by Jebedia Loven (Tony award-winning actor Michael Cerveris) that sees the plague as the Lord’s work.
