If you’re a regular on the film festival circuit, then odds are good you caught Jim Mickle’s highly acclaimed Stake Land at a fest or two over the past year. For the rest of us who’ve been wondering when we might be able to see it, today comes news from Dark Sky Films that we should mark our calendars for April 22nd!
The post-apocalyptic Stake Land (review here) stars Kelly McGills as Sister, a nun caught in a crisis of faith who joins forces with vicious vampire hunters Martin (Connor Paolo) and Mister (Nick Damici). But her biggest threat may not come from the bloodthirsty masses — rather from a militia head (Michael Cerveris) who interprets the post-apocalyptic chaos as the Lord’s work.
Co-starring are Danielle Harris, Bonnie Dennison, Marianne Hagan, Chance Kelly, Adam Scarimbolo, and Sean Nelson. The film is produced by Dark Sky Films and Larry Fessenden’s Glass Eye Pix with producers Derek Curl, Peter Phok, Brent Kunkle, Adam Folk, and Fessenden, who also appears in the film.
In the aftermath of a vampire epidemic, a teen is taken in by a grizzled vampire hunter on a road trip through a post-apocalyptic America, battling both the bloodsuckers and a fundamentalist militia.
Look for more soon, including where exactly you’ll be able to see Stake Land come April 22nd. In the meantime be sure to join the Stake Land group on Facebook.
