Who doesn’t love a good viral marketing campaign? We sure do. That’s exactly what is going on with Jim Mickle’s upcoming vampire flick, Stake Land. That’s right: vampires and viral videos. Get ready to explode, internet.
The film stars modern horror queen Danielle Harris, and comes from a place where vampires rule the world and are a complete plague on humanity, and not just shiny, shirtless guys with big hair who date high school girls. Here’s the official synopsis.
America is a lost nation. When an epidemic of vampirism strikes, humans find themselves on the run from vicious, feral beasts. Cities are tombs and survivors cling together in rural pockets, fearful of nightfall. When his family is slaughtered, young Martin (Gossip Girl’s Connor Paolo) is taken under the wing of a grizzled, wayward hunter (In the Cut’s Nick Damici) whose new prey are the undead.
The film hits theaters on April 22nd, but you can get a taste of what you’re in store for with their viral video after the jump in which a young aspiring filmmaker attempts to shoot a home video with his father, until he notices a change in him, and not for the better.
