Review: Stake Land (2010)

A hidden gem of horror for lovers of the apocalyptic genre

 

When I browse through my Netflix each and every night, the first thing that draws me in to any particular flick is the poster art.  Often, the way the picture is represented says much about the way the movie will pan out, at least visually.  The second thing that I look at is, of course, the description of the film.  It may be short and sometimes inaccurate, but it’s all we get to go on when it comes to a movie that we may never have heard of.  The description for Stake Land, according to Netflix, was that it was a movie about a post-apocalyptic world filled with zombies and vampires.  Needless to say, it didn’t sound too impressive.  But I decided to give it a try anyways and, in the end, I was not in the least disappointed that I did.

Review: Exit Humanity (2011)

Zombies meet the mid-1800s with a fair degree of success.

Zombies are all the rage these days and you pretty much can’t turn a corner without running into something that’s been inspired by them.  More so when you go browsing through the Internet.  And this new obsession with zombies means that Hollywood is trying to capitalize on their fame by making movie after movie starring the shambling hordes of the undead.
