Excerpt: Movie : First I thought this was another a low-budget lousy horror movie but in fact it was very good. The story was the kind of hunting vampire and zombie movie but it was not boring and you want to watch until the end. PQ: Very decent picture SQ: Decent Sound Overall : Good movie.
Summary: Such a bleak post-apocalyptic horror film. Granted, when you say "post-apocalyptic" usually it's not all sunshine and rainbows but Stake Land is pretty darn depressing. Still, it takes a different take on the whole vampire/zombie thing - and a it's a good twist on a tired genre. Worth checking out.
Excerpt: Stake Land is a film that stays with you well after you watch it. It is reminiscent of many other post apocalyptic films (The Divide, The Road, I am Legend, etc.), but stands out for the sheer originality and bold storytelling. It is brutal and unrelentless.
Excerpt: An epidemic of vampirism has turned the United States into a post-apocalyptic wasteland of empty cities, with human survivors clustering in small rural communities and fighting off the bloodsuckers when night falls.
Excerpt: This movie is something that I truly enjoyed to see. Even with a low budget it has blown many man stream pictures out of the water. I think the story line was pretty superb and the characters had such depth.
Excerpt: Een goeie film, lekker voor een zaterdagavond met een bakje popcorn te bekijken. De sfeer om een bijna apocalyptische wereld te weergeven wordt goed neergezet. De acteurs en de setting zijn goed neergezet.
Excerpt: I had never heard of this movie before I picked it up from my local blockbuster. And to be honest I thought it would probably just be a tacky horror movie BUT to my surprise it was a really good well made movie with very very good picture and audio quality considering it is a low budget movie.
