Stake Land II (AKA The Stakelander) (2016, dir. Dan Berk & Robert Olsen)

After his family is killed, the adult Martin seeks out Mister. Autumnal but impressive sequel to Stake Land, this second part is better on atmosphere than on its lean revenge plot, but is watchable nevertheless.

Stake Land (2010, dir. Jim Mickle)

A teen and a grizzled hunter journey across a post-vampire-apocalypse America. An episodic but imaginative spin on the genre, wth plenty of ideas, some clever spins on old tropes, and a fun central performance.

Cold In July (2014, dir. Jim Mickle)

After killing an intruder, a family man’s life spirals out of control. Splendid 80s-set thriller with a John Carpenter vibe, this version of an early Joe R Lansdale novel consistently wrong-foots the audience while meditating on the effects of violence.
