The Most Dangerous Thing Is To Be Alive.
It is true that the parakmasmeno subspecies of horror films with vampires has not yet found a consistently good itself. Beyond little films-surprises (such as "Let The Right One In," or the American remake of) the last few years we have watched many indifferent to bad bampirikes movies. However, in all this qualitative "recession" more and something interesting would meet occasionally. The "Stake Land" we are dealing with here is one of the good business bampirikis genre although in no way gave the great "breath" in suffering subspecies. Basically borrow the logic films entitled "Zombie Apocalypse" replacing the zombie spread by vampires. IE as in similar zompotainies the world has been affected dramatically by the unexpected scourge of vampires, many States have collapsed and people survive on smaller communities ensuring ever, having adjusted their lives to the new sad reality.
Central characters are the young Martin and the relentless Vampire Hunter Mister. The two of them go package after the massacre of the family of Martin from vampires and seeking new "Eden" directed in Canada where it is rumored that conditions are much better compared with the dangerous US. On their journey the two heroes are faced with terrifying vampire but human threats as a fundamentalist religious organization called "Fraternity" that follows its own agenda ". At the same time we know and useful "allies" with whom they cooperate to survive.
There is also a cameo appearance of the Director of the film. Is the guy who plays banjo in a bar.
The feeling of freshness is apparent in "Stake Land" as well as the meticulous directorial work around the project. The narration is done by the young Martin giving the film dramatic tone while leaving plenty of room for the development of the action which is often impressive and bloodstained. The two protagonists, Martin and Mister, easily stand out from the rest and pull out good chemistry between them. The secondary characters but are not accept proportional trim and seem to have appeared out of nowhere, without good reason.
Positively judged and the film's effort to penetrate the delicate balance of human psychology which disrupted after shocking events pushing people to irrational behaviors. For example, the religious organization of "Brotherhood" reflects the ease with which the shocked man metakyla in delirious superstition and fanaticism. In other words, the movie is not shallow nor the Flash philosophy.
Generally the "Stake Land" is a decent horror movie with vampires who observes some clichés of the genre (e.g. the paloykwma in the heart, the action of vampires at night) including the creatively in a fresh story with dramatic overtones and rich action. However, we would like to avoid some pitfalls and the plot sections of it were faster. Also the abrupt finale I don't think satisfies the most viewers.

Fresh keynote, scattered good ideas in the scenario, good interpretations, meticulous direction, stunning action scenes and battles with vampires.
Slow pace, lack of development and utilization of some characters, sporadic exaggerations of the script, mediocre finale.
