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.
  • Iron Woobie: Mister.
  • Special Effect Failure: It's pretty obviously a doll infant being dropped earlier on in the film.
  • The Woobie: Martin, Sister and Belle.
