"Welcome to Stake Land, kid." IFC Midnight has finally unveiled the official trailer for Stake Land, the gory indie vampire horror movie I've been talking about since Toronto last year. Written and directed by American filmmaker Jim Mickle, Stake Land is about a kid (Connor Paolo) who, lost in the ravaged world that is Stake Land, joins up with a grizzled, wayward hunter named Mister (Nick Damici) who takes him on as his apprentice in killing vampires. Yep, it brings back angry, gory vampires, and it's fantastic movie, too. Can't suggest it enough, I hope this trailer gets your attention, it's one of my fave horror movies of the year.

Martin was a normal teenage boy before the country collapsed in an empty pit of economic and political disaster. A vampire epidemic has swept across what is left of the nation's abandoned towns and cities, and it's up to Mister, a death-dealing, rogue vampire hunter, to help get Martin safely north to the New Eden.
Stake Land is directed by American filmmaker Jim Mickle, with a script co-written by star Nick Damici and Mickle. The film won the Midnight Audience Award at the Toronto Film Festival last year. IFC Films is bringing Stake Land to limited theaters on April 22nd this month. Here's my Toronto review. Thoughts?
