‘Stake Land’ Viral Takes Us to the Beginning

Jim Mickle’s Stake Land begins “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.

A new viral video has been posted online that will take you back before the virus had wiped out humanity, to where it was all still a “shock” to see one of these vampiric creatures.

Starring Danielle Harris, Kelly McGillis, and Conor Paolo, Dark Sky Films will release in limited theaters on April 22. Mickle is best known for directing Mulberry Street.
