Stake Land is a surprise stand-out horror movie about a post-apocalyptic America ravaged by a pandemic that mutated a large portion of the population into ravenous creatures of the night (that apparently hate the cold). The pairing of a hardcore vampire killer mentoring a young apprentice as they search for safer territory is somewhat reminiscent of Zombieland. However, Stake Land is serious about its subject matter. It covers quite a few interesting scenarios as the duo of "Mister" and Martin make their way towards Canada. Kelly McGillis puts in an unexpected performance as a resilient nun who helps the two navigate through the danger zone.
