2010 saw some really solid films released. But, since Kris and I record the Stone Age Gamer on Tuesdays and I’m bad at planning, I’m only going to highlight the one I’m pretty sure you missed. That said, you should definitely check out: Let Me In, Black Swan, I Spit on Your Grave, The Last Exorcism, A Nightmare on Elm Street, and Tucker & Dale vs Evil.
Our main feature today though is a movie called Stake Land. Stake Land is a low budget, end of the world vampire apocalypse movie that feels much more like The Walking Dead than whatever the hell that show has become. In it, a vampire hunter known only as Mister takes a kid, Martin, under his wing as he travels north to a settlement known as New Eden. In this world, vampirism is not sexy. It is a plague that has destroyed humanity. During their travels they meet a nun called only by Sister, played by the only person you’re likely to recognize, Kelly McGillis, and run afoul of a group know as the Brotherhood. The Brotherhood is responsible for much of the death and destruction facing America in this film as they are the types of guys who just release vampires into a town to purge humanity of sinners because it is god’s will. I don’t want to give too much away though as this movie really is fantastic. The low budget nature gives it more of a documentary feel and the actors are awesome. Tight on story and action, Stake Land is well worth a watch.
