      What to know

      Critics Consensus

      Though the genre is well worn at this point, director Jim Mickle focuses on strong characterization and eerie atmosphere to craft an effective apocalyptic vampire chiller that also manages to pack a mean punch. Read critic reviews

        "Stake Land" is "The Walking Dead", but with vampires. Unfortunately, that also means it's a bit slow at times. However, for a low budget film (which I assume this MUST be) in the action/horror genre, the film makers have done an exceptional job. "Stake Land" is exciting and thoughtful with reasonably solid character development. (Too bad they didn't spend a little of those creative juices on the title.)

        Normally when low-budget horror takes itself seriously, it is to the detriment of the film, but Stake Land proves that the right script and some flair, it can definitely be made to work in your favour.

        There's been countless apocalyptic films over the years, Mostly from zombies or a virus not so much vampires for some reason, This film has a Walking Dead vibe to it, It focuses more on surviving than actual vampire attacks, There was a few good action scenes but nothing great, The cast was good but something was missing that could of made this film better, Maybe lack of fresh ideas spoiled it.

        Stake Land features a zombie-like vampire apocalypse. The mysterious plague turned people into zombie-like vampires, young boy Martin rescued by a stranger known as Mister traveled together to find a safe haven, but vampires are not the only threatening the humanity. The cast is fantastic, you have Connor Paolo and Danielle Harris playing the leading roles. The fighting scenes were realistic, unlike most other films of the same genre, you see real focus on survival and building characters. Stake Land is also somewhat libertarian too with it's anti governmental message. But all and all, it felt short at the end with the uneven script.
