STAKE LAND 2 premieres on Syfy channel TONIGHT at 9/8c!

Directed by Dan Berk and Robert Olsen, written by Nick Damici, produced by Peter Phok and Fessenden for GEP, Greg Newman of Dark Sky Films and co-produced by the Syfy Channel.  Damici returns as Mister and Connor Paolo as Martin.

“When his home of 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 and legendary vampire hunter, Mister, to guide him. Roaming the wilderness of a steadily decaying country, Martin goes in search of the one man who can help him get revenge. Once reunited, Mister and Martin prepare to battle a now-ravenous Brotherhood and its monstrous overlord. But it’ll take more than the two of them to take down this terrifying new threat, and with more than just their lives now at risk, the stakes are higher than ever before.”
