Can Flames Hold Off This Vampire Pack in ‘Stake Land’?

Premiering at TIFF before screening at Fantastic Fest (both next month) is Dark Sky Films’ post-apocalyptic vampire tale, Stake Land, Jim Mickle’s follow-up horror film to the ever popular Mulberry Street. We’ve got a brand new image from the flick that takes place following a global spread of vampirism. Kelly McGillis plays a nun who joins a small team of survivors (including Nick Damici, Danielle Harris of Halloween and Halloween 2, and Conor Paolo of “Gossip Girl”) as they make a treacherous journey north to safety through the war-torn U.S. McGillis’ character, “Sister,” faces a crisis of faith during the vampire bloodshed, ultimately taking up arms to do battle with her newly formed family unit.
