TIFF 2010 Trailer #6: Stake Land

From Jim Mickle, the man who gave us the zombie flick Mulberry Street, comes the vampire road movie Stake Land. The film will star Kelly McGillis who will play a nun who joins a small group of survivors trying to make their way north to safety through the war-torn America. 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 that interprets the plague as the Lord’s work.

Mickle recently told Fangoria magazine more about the movie:

“It’s an apocalyptic vampire Western. It’s told through the eyes of a young boy who is taken under the wing of Nick, who plays a brutal, solitary ghoul hunter in a world populated by grungy creatures—these are not the pretty True blood vampires.

It’s kind of a new Depression; politics have fallen and the economy has fallen. And it’s their story together—how this kid goes from being a young boy in a suburban town to ultimately becoming a stone cold vampire killer. This was written back before the election, so it’s got some political-mindedness to it, because that was a hot topic at the time—the economics and financial system.”
