Stakeland (2010)

Rated 5 of 5 stars on Netflix

It’s the best of a post-apocalyptic vampire and the worst of humanity movie all rolled together. The filming is beautiful and stark, the journey is epic. It’s The Walking Dead but with a different cast and a different creature. These days it’s hard to find a vampire movie that isn’t at least a little tongue in cheek, so it’s kind of fun that this is 100% earnest. Hopeful and hopeless all at once. It’s not scary as much as it’s grave. I loved it.
