STAKE LAND II — The Stakelander out on Digital 2/7/17, DVD & Blu-ray 2/14/17

stakeland-2-poster_425

Stake Land set a new standard in vampire apocalypse thrillers in 2011, and now the eagerly awaited sequel arrives to push the story and its characters to the next shocking level. STAKE LAND II, again starring Nick Damici and Connor Paolo, will be available across digital platforms on February 7, 2017. The film will also be available on Blu-ray and DVD beginning February 14, 2017.

STAKE LAND II, a Dark Sky Films presentation of a Glass Eye Pix production in association with Berserker Entertainment and Last Pictures, is a new adventure set several years after the events in Stake Land, in which mankind must struggle to survive in the wake of a vampire apocalypse. When his home in New Eden is destroyed by a revitalized Brotherhood and its new Vamp leader, Martin finds himself alone in the badlands of America with only the distant memory of his mentor, the legendary vampire hunter Mister, to guide him. Roaming the wilderness of a steadily decaying country, Martin searches for the one man who can help him exact revenge.

Once reunited, Mister and Martin prepare to confront the ravenous Brotherhood and its monstrous overlord. But it’ll take more than the two of them to battle this terrifying new threat, and with the future of humanity hanging in the balance, the stakes are higher than ever before.

Reuniting one of horror cinema’s most memorable heroic teams, STAKE LAND II is an epic exploration of a post-apocalyptic world ravaged by blood-thirsty vamps and social collapse, where only the strongest survive.

The film brings back some of the key cast and creative team behind the post-apocalyptic hit Stake Land. Nick Damici (“Hap and Leonard”) reprises his role as Mister and is also the screenwriter, while Connor Paolo (“Gossip Girl,” “Revenge”) is back as Martin, and director Jim Mickle (We Are What We Are, Cold in July) is back as executive producer. Peter Phok and horror icon Larry Fessenden of Glass Eye Pix produce, along with Dark Sky’s Greg Newman. It is the second film from directors Dan Berk and Robert Olsen, following their gripping debut, Body. Also starring in STAKE LAND II are Laura Abramsen (Basic Human Needs), A.C. Peterson (Shooter), Bonnie Dennison (Beneath), Kristina Hughes (Green River), and Steven Williams (TV’s “Supernatural”).

The original Stake Land received prestigious international festival play and won the Midnight Madness Audience Award at the 2010 Toronto International Film Festival. It was a commercial and critical success around the world, praised as “the American horror film of the year” (Twitchfilm), “terrific” (New York magazine), “bold and memorable” (San Francisco Chronicle), and “nothing short of epic” (Dread Central).

Praise for STAKE LAND II has been equally enthusiastic since its world premiere at the 49th Sitges International Fantastic Film Festival (2016). Horror Society called it “the perfect sequel, the perfect continuation of the story… the vampiric sequel we’ve all been dying for.” Amy Seidman of Fangoria opined: “Olsen and Berk’s direction is as strong as Matt Mitchell’s cinematography, which is beautiful and, at times, reminiscent of Robert Altman’s westerns.”

THE STAKELANDER is “genuinely moving”

“My god Damici and Paolo are so good..so intense.
There’s a scene near the end of the film where the two express their affection towards one another
and I almost lost it – their onscreen chemistry is spectacular…
Damici wrote a really stellar sequel to a film that didn’t need expanding upon,
but I’m glad he did because in the process he also opened up Stake Land into a potential horror franchise
which I didn’t know I needed, but now I do.”

INDIEWIRE — Genre Fanatics: Where Aficionados Go to Keep Up on the Latest in Blood, Frights and Creatures

IndieWire highlights the festivals, websites, Twitter feeds and podcasts that connect genre fans to films and filmmakers they love.

Podcasts

Genre is no different than any other corner of the media world; it too is branching into the world of podcasts. When we reached out for recommendations of what we should be listening to from our genre friends, these were the shows most commonly recommended:

Tales From Beyond the Pale”: while this is not a way to keep up on the world of genre, it is incredible entertainment. The horror podcast — produced by Larry Fessenden and Glenn McQuaid for Glass Eye Pix — is inspired by 1930s radio dramas and re-opened the door for genre filmmakers to return to the tradition of radio plays.
