Stakeland, Movie Review

Martin was a normal teenage boy before the country collapsed in an empty pit of economic and political disaster. A vampire epidemic has swept across what it's left of the nation's abandoned towns and cities, and it's up to Mister, a death dealing, rogue vampire hunter, to get Martin safety to North Canada, the continent's New Eden.

What you should know while reading this review is that when I started watching the movie, I was tired. I, basically, didn't really want too watch it, but I knew that I had to.

Good things: The lead actor, Connor Paolo, I've only seen him in Gossip Girl and it was really good to watch him in something completely different. As for the other members of the cast, some were good, others not so good. The world, this destroying USA was really good. I don't know where the movie was shouted but they found places without any soul, empty roads, which is rare in my country, and demolished homes.
Bad things: The story, it wasn't clear of what happened and how people transformed into those things, except for a reference. It was also a little similar to another movie I've seen called Zombieland, I mean that there were also rules to survive and there was also a rumored place where there were not these creatures. And the creatures, I don't know how the writers were thinking, but the creatures looked like zombies, they eat like zombies, but they were called vampires. They even had fangs. Also, back to the story, a thing that was particularly disturbing is that there was a group of people who were thinking that the vampires are good and they have a purpose being there. Basically, in my opinion, they were idiots. I understand the fact that there could be people who are opposite the others, but when it comes to men-eating beasts, how can you support them??

I mentioned before that I had a tiring day, which brings me to the funny part of my night. You know when you see a thriller you can, more or less, understand when a scary scene is going to follow. So, I was in the beginning of the movie, thinking that maybe I should turn it off and go to sleep, while another, small part of my mind was informing me that the scary creture is going to make its debut. But being tired meant that I was a little sleepy, so when the scary creature did appeared, I totally freaked out and scared. That was enough to wake me up and watch the rest of it with no problem.

Bottom line, it wasn't my best and it wasn't my worst. It was fine and light, you can say, for those who are fond of thrillers. But unless you like them, I recommend you to skip it.

  1. Now I want to watch it :D
    Also in Priest there were also more nosferatu style vampires than Dracula style ;)
    And finally in every war the opposing party seems like man eating beasts, that doesn't mean they are evil automaticaly, and even if they are animalistic and not inteligent that means they are tottaly neutral, following their instics and rules of nature, they are still not evil and they don't want war they just have a reason for it that if found can end the war.


There is lot of spam lately at the posts, so for a while i will put up the comment moderation. Sorry for that, i really don't like it but i thought it might stop the spamming. It will be down soon enough! Thanks a lot :)
