Tomorrow CHUD.com is going to be a presenting partner for a sneak preview of Jim Mickle’s STAKE LAND, and we’ve got a whole mess of tickets to give away to you lucker New Yorkers!
In a fierce, alternative vision of America’s bleak future, a young boy is about to learn how cruel the world can be. Martin was a normal teenage boy before the country collapsed in an empty pit of economic and political disaster.
And from the ashes rose a new breed of terror. A vampire epidemic has swept across what is left of the nation’s abandoned towns and cities, and it’s up to Mister, a death dealing, rogue vampire hunter, to get Martin safely north to Canada, the continent’s New Eden.
Welcome to Stake Land, kid…
Director Jim Mickle’s first feature Mulberry Street is a fun zombie flick that played Tribeca, SXSW and Toronto After Dark a few years ago, and this is his follow-up feature. It’s been getting amazing reviews so far. The head of Glass Eye Pix Larry Fessenden (Habit, I Sell The Dead) produced the film, and the cast includes Nick Damici (actor/co-writer of Mulberry Street), Danielle Harris (Halloween), Connor Paolo (Gossip Girl).
The screening will be held at a Manhattan theater at 8:00pm tomorrow (Tuesday the 12th), and will have the director and select cast in attendence for a Q&A afterwards. This really is the place to see it as this is a hometown film- most of the cast and crew are natives! Support your local filmmakers!
