Vamping up the horror genre
Backyard Cinema are getting ready for the apocalypse by screening creepy films that might just make you jump out of your skin. Tonight it's the turn of Jim Mickle's Stake Land. When Martin’s family are slaughtered by vampires, he’s taken under the grizzled wing of Mister, a vampire hunter. In a world where vicious beasts attack and the only other alternative is a fundamentalist militia, Martin must follow a maverick to survive. Roving through America’s heartland, the melancholic music and air of despair make for an edgy production that bursts with action. Best available seating. Your ticket includes a glass of beer or wine.
"An angsty, bleak fantasy of America the lost."
