Stake Land (15)

The postapocalyptic landscape has become so familiar of late (The Road, The Book of Eli) it puts pressure on low-budget indies like this to deliver something new.

It's a road movie, with human survivors in search of refuge from vampires, but the writers ring some changes with unexpected plot turns and the return of the 1980s star Kelly McGillis as a nun on the run.
