Indie vampire saga Stake Land has been on the minds of both horror film fans and vampires fans alike, and at long last this much talked about movie is finally available on DVD and Blu-ray!
Stake Land follows the journey of a teenager named Martin (Connor Paolo), who is rescued by a mysterious vampire slayer simply named “Mister” (played by co-writer Nick Damici) after a vampire has massacred Martin’s entire family. From that moment on Connor is immediately thrown into a world where his innocent teenage days must be sacrificed for hours of vampire slaying training and cross-country trips to “vamp-free” zones for food and shelter in this post-apocalyptic world.
After hearing about a place called “New Eden,” a location that is believed to be free of all vampires, Connor and Mister embark on a long journey up north, and along the way a nun (Kelly McGillis), a pregnant young woman (Danielle Harris), and a young man named Willie (Sean Nelson) tag along with the pair in hopes of finding the wonderful New Eden. Wowever, all of them quickly discover that vampires are not the only evil beings they have to worry about.
