Undeniably inventive, unconventional and occasionally very witty.

satirise[s] the ethical, social, ecological and geopolitical exhaust left by America's all-consuming love affair with the car, that great symbol of status and mobility, in a world increasingly running on empty.

Little White Lies

This small-budget blend of Ferat Vampire and Little Shop of Horrors climbs through the gears from low comedy to a gleefully cynical finale...

A black comedy-horror with gas in the tank.

Shadows on the Wall

I have a feeling it will probably become a cult classic.

Looking for alternative fuels? This one will cost an arm and a leg (but not necessarily yours).

John Beifuss
Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

This ingenious heir to Roger Corman's 'Little Shop of Horrors' and 'Bucket of Blood' literalizes the idea that the comfort and clout that Americans enjoy are the benefits of a Faustian blood-for-oil contract to which all of us are de facto signees.

At just 75 minutes, even a car on blood still runs out of gas.

Blood Car may have been collecting prizes and earning praise for its supposedly wickedly twisted satire but it still seems trashy, B-movie junk.

'Blood Car' is essentially a one-joke scenario that never quite adds up to the sum of its mangled body parts.

Jane Crowther
Total Film

A mumblecore mix of social commentary, black humour and fanboy salute that's either the Emperor's New Clothes or bonkers-brilliant.

[Director] Orr pulls out all the stops, even when he should leave them in, and the result is a joke that can't quite sustain the movie's running time.
