Stake Land character prequels: Watch all four short stories here









With the release of new Vampire flick Stake Land just around the corner (June 17th UK), four character ‘prequels’ have been filmed to give some insight into the films main characters. The makers of Stake Land invited directors to do the short films or them, and the actor’s from the film took time out on their days off to film the videos.

Each brought their own sensibility to the world that Nick Damici and Jim Mickle created in the feature.

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
