Yet another new image has come our way in promotion of Jim Mickle’s highly acclaimed Stake Land, which you’ll be able to dig on in theatres April 22nd! Check it out!
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 in his own way.
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.
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.
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.
