Storyline

Martin was a normal teenage boy before the country collapsed in an empty pit of economic and political disaster. A vampire epidemic has swept across what is left of the nation's abandoned towns and cities, and it's up to Mister, a death dealing, rogue vampire hunter, to get Martin safely north to Canada, the continent's New Eden. Written by Anonymous

Goofs

When Martin is being examined by the doc, Mister has a half full jug of beer sitting beside his foot. When they step outside the door, the jug is empty and Mister asks the barber sitting in the chair if they have any alcohol in town. The barber then tells him there's some "sour beer but it won't kill you" and Mister then walks off to fill his empty jug. The two scenes are out of order. See more »

Quotes

Martin: In desperate times, false gods abound. People put their faith in the loudest preacher and hope they're right. But sometimes they're wrong. Dead wrong.

Brilliant post-apocalyptic story
22 April 2011 | by See all my reviews

Jim Mickle has crafted a complete world of bad guys, vampires, and enough evil people to make the entire paranoid world. This is one of the most complete-feeling pictures I've seen in a long time. The characters really feel like they're in this alternate universe of Mad Max meets I Am Legend.

Also, you will learn many important tips for surviving the coming zombie/alien/vampire apocalypse. Cyclone fencing and chicken wire over your car's windows when you sleep at night. And garlic oil on your stake doesn't hurt.

There are some beautiful images in this movie too, with wonderful performances throughout. Now get out of my way, I gotta go kill some vampires...
