Christopher Webster [Celluloid 04.14.11] post apocalyptic movie trailer news horror

It's been a long time coming, but the official trailer and first actual footage for Jim Mickle's critically acclaimed post-apocalyptic vampire horror Stake Land has finally arrived. And yeah, it looks f'ing brilliant.

America is a lost nation. When an epidemic of vampirism strikes, humans find themselves on the run from vicious, feral beasts. Cities are tombs and survivors cling together in rural pockets, fearful of nightfall. When his family is slaughtered, young Martin (Gossip Girl's Connor Paolo) is taken under the wing of a grizzled, wayward hunter (In the Cut's Nick Damici) whose new prey are the undead. Simply known as Mister, the vampire stalker takes Martin on a journey through the locked-down towns of America's heartland, searching for a better place while taking down any bloodsuckers that cross their path.

Along the way they recruit fellow travellers, including a nun (Kelly McGillis) who is caught in a crisis of faith when her followers turn into ravenous beasts. This ragtag family unit cautiously moves north, avoiding major thoroughfares that have been seized by The Brethren, a fundamentalist militia headed by Jebedia Loven (Tony award-winning actor Michael Cerveris) that interprets the plague as the Lord's work.

We've reviewed the film a few times here on Quiet Earth and you can catch those reviews here, here and here. We're also getting a screener sent to the QE headquarters, so more thoughts on the film's awesomeness should appear.
