Today in UK & Ireland Jim Mickle’s Post Apocalyptic Vampire ‘road’ movie STAKE LAND was released nationwide.In an unusal move Metrodome the British/Irish distributor has released another UK trailer which does contain some new footage not seen in the previous British trailer. The first thing which will come to peoples minds when vampires are in the movie, Twilight rest assure these bloodsuckers are not depressing emo vamps but vicious animal like creatures that would rip you apart from a heartbeat. Stake Land is alot more dark, gritty visceral movie which see a small band of survivors trying to stay alive in a world where the odds are against them with the vamps along right wing religious militias spreading racial hatred.
I really enjoyed this movie which I was fortunate to see at Glasgow Film Fest in February, it does keep its independent feel and with no blockbuster names on the cast list the movie keeps it feet firmly on the ground.Connor Paolo (Gossip Girl), Nick Damici (Mulberry Street), Danielle Harris (Hatchet 2) and Kelly McGillis(Top Gun). Check out 2 new clips also from the movie below the trailer.

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 with his hit, MULBERRY STREET, Jim Mickle creates a dark and terrifying world, although this time it is fully stocked with the most vicious vampires in recent film history. STAKE LAND is a gritty, post-apocalyptic road movie with teeth
