The best vampire movie of the century so far,
This review is from: Stake Land [Blu-ray][Region Free] (Blu-ray)
The old vampire genre has been getting a bit long in the tooth (sorry!) of late, with far too many slick, sexy and sanitised takes on the time-honoured blood-sucking mythos. Stake Land reverses this trend by making its vampires filthy, rotten, berserk and borderline zombie-like. This, coupled with the undeniable appeal of a compelling road movie where you can't wait to see what's around the next bend and plenty of well-crafted survival-horror elements makes for an unforgettable experience.
I know it's a bit cheap to make comparisons, but if you can imagine the best elements of The Walking Dead and The Road combined into a 98 minute adrenaline rush, you'll get some notion of how good Stake Land is.
Blu-ray presentation is impeccable, with some panoramic North-American vistas that look terrific in HD and the 5.1 surround sound is everything you'd expect. Plenty of extras including an above-average extended behind-the-scenes feature.
Stake Land deserves a place in every horror fan's collection.
