Review: Stake Land OMG picture of a cute guy!!!

This was originally a review of Jim Mickle's Stake Land, currently screening at Melbourne's Cinema Nova, which follows a small band of survivors on the run from mutant/zombie/vampire creatures. There's a gun-slinger, a cute orphan kid whose parents are eaten, a nun played by Kelly McGillis(!) and a pregnant hitchhiker on the run from her serial killing uncle, Michael Myers - wait, what? The whole thing is rather silly and as I was writing the review the entire thing seemed to focus around one scene wherein the characters run from the snowy, mountainous terrain of the northern states of America into a glorious, mid-west cornfield. The scene didn't make a lick of sense and I wasn't particularly liking what I had written so, naturally, I scrapped it in favour of showing you pretty pictures of the film's star, Connor Paolo - otherwise known as Eric van der Woodsen from Gossip Girl.

I think we can all agree that this is a significant improvement.
