Big things are happening on TV Tropes! New admins, new designs, fewer ads, mobile versions, beta testing opportunities, thematic discovery engine, fun trope tools and toys, and much more - Learn how to help here and discuss here.
These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: Stake Land
Complete Monster: Jebediah Loven is the leader of a cult that has overtaken the Southern US amidst the Vampire outbreak. Loven starts by leaving the hero Vampire hunter Mister out for the ravenous infected. Loven and his cult capture live vampires and drop them into civilian populations to run wild, and when Loven is left alone for the vampires, he gives his blood willingly and becomes a thinking monster who stalks and kills members of Mister's party, even capturing, torturing and infecting a pregnant woman out of spite against Mister and his protege Martin.
Crowning Moment of Heartwarming: Martin hugging Mister towards the end and crying. Mister who has been keeping him at arm's length throughout the movie puts his arm around him as well.
