When a protective father meets a murderous ex-con, both need to deviate from the path they are on as they soon find themselves entangled in a downwards spiral of lies and violence while having to confront their own inner psyche.

Martin was a normal teenage boy before the country collapsed in an empty pit of economic and political disaster.

Early in the movie, they stop next to a cornfield. Late in the movie they run through a cornfield. These cornfields had to have been planted long after the vampire epidemic. Seems rather unlikely that anyone was out planting entire fields of corn when everyone was struggling merely to survive. See more »
Months passed in a blur of days and nights. We traveled east and west, but always north. Away from death.

We were on our own now. Me and Mister. Traveling ...

After reading some of these reviews, i thought they were a bit harsh. But with that said, i respect there opinions about this movie.
I enjoyed this movie, from start to finish i was well entertain, sure it's gloomy, the story is simple, the action was good, and so was the script, there might not have been many words spoken in the movie, but it fits in well to make you feel like immerse in there gloomy Vamp filled world.
Everyone in the movie acted well yes, there is no big name actors, and i'm happy about that. You don't need big name actors to make a good movie.
Not sure what other people expected from Stake Land, but i got what i expected, survivors trying to survive, not just trying to survive against vamps, but also against human desperation and cruelness.
Decent acting, decent script, great movie, 9 out of 10
