In a fierce, alternative vision of Americaís 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 nationís abandoned towns and cities, and itís up to Mister, a death dealing, rogue vampire hunter, to get Martin safely north to Canada, the continentís New Eden.

Welcome to Stake Land, kidÖ

Jim Mickle's debut feature film "Mulberry Street" enjoyed a phenomenal film festival run having screened in 25 major international festivals including Tribeca and South by Southwest. In 2007 the film took home a coveted Audience Award at Fantasia. It later won Best Film as the opening night gala film at the Toronto After Dark Film Festival. Horror bible Fangoria magazine heralded it as "One of the best independent horror features in recent years" and it landed on a number of critics' "Best of 2007" lists. "Mulberry Street" was acquired theatrically by Lionsgate Films and After Dark Films. Since then he has directed the animated short "One Night in December" and the post-apocalyptic vampire film "Stake Land."

Mickle studied film production at NYU, writing and directing three award winning short films including "The Underdogs," which screened at the Woodstock Film Festival in 2003. He has worked professionally as a storyboard artist, a lighting technician, a 3D animator, and film editor, gathering over forty credits to his name.

He is currently developing an adaptation of Joe R. Lansdale's classic noir novel "Cold in July."
