Exclusive: Poster Reveal for Jim Mickle's Superb Horror 'Stake Land'

April 11, 2011

Stake Land

Last year one of my favorite midnight horror movies of the Toronto Film Festival (plus Fantastic Fest, too!) was Jim Mickle's Stake Land, a fresh new take on the vampire genre with lots of blood and gore. IFC Films asked us to exclusively debut the official US poster for the upcoming release of Stake Land and I'm more than happy to do so, partially because I think it's a great horror flick, also because it's a kick ass poster. It might seem a bit patriotic with that flag, but I love the inverse blood and otherwise gritty look and feel. In front is Nick Damici as "Mister", and Connor Paolo to the left. Give this fantastic indie horror a chance!

There's also a pretty awesome viral clip for Stake Land that's been floating around that I've embedded below as well that links to the viral site. 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 (Nick Damici) whose newest prey are endless undead.

Stake Land was written and directed by Canadian filmmaker Jim Mickle, who won the coveted Midnight Audience Award during the Toronto Film Festival last year. IFC Films is bringing Stake Land to limited theaters starting on April 22nd later this month. Stay tuned for a trailer and read my review from Toronto!

  • It looks like the poster is kind a inspired by ( The Book Of Eli ) movie .. The color and the atmosphere is the same ! ... The main point is that I am glad seeing the profile of Jim Mickle .. He looks like he worked really hard in the past 10 years making movies almost in all the departments.. and it give me a hope that this will be good ... and we will wait and see 😉
  • Staatz
    Do you really need to put your water mark on the poster?
    • Just in the corner, yea there's a lot of people who steal content and re-post without links these days, it's just for those people, to discreetly say "this is where it originally came from - check us out." Hopefully that's the message, at least. 😉
  • lol, first Dead Island, now this. Kids are getting pwnd lately.

    That was a horrible trailer if you don't know what happens at the end0.0 So for a horror flick it had the right effect on me. It gives me a Dead Island vibe
  • It was a decent flick, pretty heavy.
