This is quite possibly the best post-apocalyptic film I have ever seen. Stake Land was co-written by Nick Damici (Mister in the film) and Jim Mickle (director) and it is brilliant piece of horror Americana.

Jim Mickle’s direction is practically flawless, he leaves no loose threads and at no time did the film meander.

Some of the material got very little response first time around … and some stuff, I just LIKE well enough to run it again. I don’t feel, given how much I post, I need to apologize for reruns. If NBC and ABC can do it, so can I. So can you andTyson!
