Movie Info

In the near future, gas prices have gotten so high that automobiles are an unusable mode of transport. Then vegan teacher Archie (Mike Brune), while working on an engine designed to run on wheat grass, discovers he can get it to work using human blood. He dumps sweet organic grocer Lorraine (Anna Chlumsky) for hot butcher Denise (Katie Rowlett) and all forms of mayhem ensue while Archie fuels his bloodcar. Things get crazier when the government takes an interest in the project.

Audience Reviews for Bloodcar

    This is a decent comedy horror that has a unique premise, but could have been done better. The idea of the film is quite good, and the creative aspect is sure to delight horror fans looking for an amusing, mindless film to watch. However, I felt that Blood Car could have benefitted from a few rewrites as the concept is very good, but it does fall short of what the film could have been. The problem with the film is that it tries to rush things while trying to grab your attention. If this would have been a slightly longer feature, with a bit more depth to its sheer ridiculous plot, then Blood Car would really have been a great horror comedy. However it does fall short. I'm not saying it's a bad film, but it's a film that needed some improvements. Despite its imperfections, this is somewhat enjoyable for what it tries to accomplish, and viewers looking for a fun, entertaining low budget B movie, will most likely enjoy this low budget affair. Blood Car could have been better, but for what it is, it's a decent film worth seeing if you love ridiculous horror films. For the most part, Blood Car works, but there are better B movies out there. I really liked the concept; I simply wished that the filmmakers would have made the film a bit longer, in order for the story to have a nice flow. As it is, it's a rushed film, one that doesn't reach its full potential and it's a shame because Blood Car could really have stood out. This is a decent film, but there is nothing remarkable about this B movie, but it's worth checking out if you have nothing else better to watch.

    5.1/10 "Blood Car" is a fine satire looking for something to satirize. Perhaps it's a satire of human nature, our wants, or murder itself; but the film never quite accomplishes what its ever-so-big ambitions suggest. It begins and ends feeling sleazy. I can't say I enjoyed it. But I do appreciate the film, somewhat, for what it's at least trying to do. The film takes place in the not-so-distant future, where Gas Prices- or the price of anything, for the matter- is going up drastically. People are trying as hard as they can not to go broke whilst driving around in their fancy cars. So now, we have a young dreamer, who works as a Kindergarten Teacher. He's a Vegan, and he's trying to perfect a system which will be able to use vegetation-liquid as car fuel. He wants to rebel, although this plan hasn't worked. But like all dreamers, he gets another big idea; and this idea becomes the basis for the film. The idea comes in the form of a car being fueled by human blood. At first, our hero uses his own blood; but figures that this can't go on forever. We witness him trying to get blood from others humans, animals, or beings. This is done in a darkly funny way (it's one of the best scenes in the entire film), with the character trying to shoot squirrels, dogs, and even kittens to get his blood fix. He's like a vampire who doesn't so much as drink the actual blood. So where does this film go wrong? I have no problem with the premise, and I have no problem with how sleazy the production is. I guess one problem would be the humor. The film is really funny one moment, just kind of funny another, and then it's so obvious and amateurish that it's not funny at all. The filmmakers obviously have a fondness for horror films and satires. Their love gave birth to a good idea which is still searching for the right material to work with. In short, "Blood Car" is well-made, but it just doesn't work. The film gets some points for being quite low-budget and Independent. If you're in to independent horror/comedies, then you may want to check this out. I have a feeling that some will actually like "Blood Car", and I have no problem with that. I can't say it's a good film, but at the same time, it's not a bad one. There are some good ideas here, although a little more exploration and intelligent humor would have helped. Approach the film as you will, if you will. I have a certain admiration for this film, but it doesn't amount to any sort of fondness. The film does have something good going for it towards the beginning of the film, but it runs out of fuel towards the end. It spirals into indie-filmmaking purgatory, which isn't a bad thing, but you know: it's far from a good thing. But if you want a sleazy "horror satire", then you've got one.

    Silly beyond words, but worth it.

    Wonderful idea but after an hour it becomes tiresome and trite. Also, could've done without watching children being shot on screen. Bad form I say!
