October 24, 2012 13 Nights of Hallowe'en 2012: Night #6 Stake Land (2010)
There was a time that life was good, but then a plague swept the land... and that plague was vampires... Welcome to Stake Land (2010). A boy and a man he knows only as Mister travel together heading north where the vampires don't want to go. Getting there is the problem. If the vampires don't get them the evil groups among the survivors just might. Connor Paolo plays the boy Martin. He has no credits of interest at this time. Nick Damici plays Mister. Nick was in Mulberry Street (2006), and will be in the intriguing sounding Dark Was the Night (2013), and We Are What We Are (2013), a remake of a Mexican-made cannibal movie. Along the way they pick up Kelly McGillis in the role of the nun credited as Sister. Kelly was in an episode of The Outer Limits (TV) (1995), and can be seen in The Innkeepers (2011) as well as We Are What We Are when it comes out. They also meet Sean Nelson playing Willie. He too has no pertinent credits.
Then there is Danielle Harris as Belle. Danielle gets around in horror and got to an early start with Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers (1988), and Halloween 5 (1989). Danielle was in a first season episode of Eerie, Indiana (1991). She has also been in Urban Legend (1998), the horror Left for Dead (2007)--there's a western too that year--Blood Night (2009), The Black Waters of Echo's Pond (2009), Fear Clinic (2009), Hatchet II (2010), ChromeSkull: Laid to Rest 2 (2011), and will be in Night of the Living Dead: Origins 3D (20??), The Ghost of Goodnight Lane (2012), Hatchet III (2012), and Dead.tv (2013). Tim House plays a sheriff and was in Mulberry Street. Marianne Hagan plays Doctor Foley and was in Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers (1995), and Dead Calling (2006) with P.J. Soles. Stuart Rudin plays Pops The Barber and can be seen in The Silence of the Lambs (1991).
Rounding out the cast of note, Vonia Arslanian credited as the Dark Haired Bartender was in Mulberry Street, and will also be in We Are What We Are. Michael Cerveris plays the cult leader Jebedia Loven. Michael plays one of the Observers in Fringe (2008) (TV), and was in Cirque du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant (2009). Heather Robb from I Sell the Dead (2008) and The House of the Devil (2009) plays a vampire. Bonnie Dennison who will be in Beneath (2013) appears as Peggy. Finally, Stake Land's director, Jim Mickle, is the director for Mulberry Street and the coming We Are What We Are. Nick Damici--Mister--and Jim Mickle wrote Mulberry Street, Stake Land, and We Are What We Are.
Addendum: Larry Fessenden from Session 9 makes an appearance in Stakeland. The director, Jim Mickle provides one of the radio voices. Also there is a James Mickle listed in the role of one of the cultists--James has a separate IMDB listing from Jim's, with too little detail to tell who he is.
