Stake Land Movie Review

I was cruising around on Netflix the other night when I stumbled upon this gem. I have always been into post-apocalyptic type movies so that is what caught my eye. This movie is sort of a cross between "The Road" and your standard vampire type movie.


Badass dude saves kid and teaches him his vampire hunting ways. They are traveling to a place called "New Eden" and the flick basically follows them on their journey.


Like I said previously love the concept of post-apocalyptic America and what people do when there are no laws. For me I couldn't stop watching it. I turned this flick on to fall asleep to and I found myself glued to the tube. From the picture and descriptions and the fact that I had never heard of it made me believe that this was a total dud. The Netflix rating for me was 4 stars so it was pretty much on point. The acting was believable and there were no stand out awful performances that would give it that B movie feeling. I found myself wanting the movie not to end.


I think the pacing was off at certain times. There were some story lines that left me wanting more. I don't want to go into too much more detail because I don't want to ruin it. The ending sort of left some things open for me which I was hoping they would elaborate on.


If you like gore and crazy religious whackos then this is your movie. The "Vamps" were sort of zombie like and that added a interesting twist to it. It's definitely worth a watch and leave a comment below on what you thought.
