Stake Land (2011)
I have to say, I loved this. Normally I don't care for end of the world films, but this one has a quality to it that makes it dare I say believable.
The vampires in this film look more like the classic ghouls of the Night of the Living Dead films, and the kill count is so that we have one right off the start gate. No prancing around the topic, you're watching a down and dirty film about the things and people who will pray upon you for no other reason then they can.
After watching this, you can't help but wonder if the creators were sticking their forks into other territory then the undead, which just proves something I've said over and over in the past; the vampire is the best metaphor for everything else we need to talk about. See the movie, you'll get what I'm saying.
