While viral marketing has either grabbed your attention for its whit, or gets you off your seat and outdoors, none of them have actually made you jump out of your seat………until now. What you are about to see is not for the faint of heart, and quite frankly, is one of the greatest starts to a viral campaign that I have ever seen. Keep reading for a look at the marketing for Stake Land.
One of the best zombie films I have seen, ever, was the far from standard zombie film known as Mulberry Street, back from the second set list 8 Films To Die For. Now, back for his second full length film, director Jim Mickle is tackling the vampire genre in his newest film, Stake Land.
In a fierce, alternative vision of America’s bleak future, a young boy is about to learn how cruel the world can be. Martin was a normal teenage boy before the country collapsed in an empty pit of economic and political disaster.
And from the ashes rose a new breed of terror. 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.
Welcome to Stake Land, kid…
The above viral video leads you to the site known as On To New Eden, which gives us look at “dad” from above, before all hell broke loose, as well as some horrific pictures like the ones below, and a DJ’s final sign-off.
Take a look at the teaser below, and let us know what you think. Stake Land is out on April 22nd.
