There's plenty of cinema du carsploitation fun to be had with this gonzo drive-in throwback involving killer vehicles gobbling up unsuspecting victims.
June 26, 2017
One of Blood Drive's most thought-provoking missteps comes from its determination to recreate the hallmarks of dystopian worlds, but without the context that summoned them forth to begin with.

Kinky, witty, winking gorefest.

The cars run on human blood; the series runs on a wicked sense of humor.

Blood Drive, SyFy's new series, isn't a television show so much as a mashup of everything that's ever offended the Parents Television Council.
June 15, 2017
Officially, Syfy isn't subject to FCC rules, but what this weird-ass show gets away with goes well beyond anything you might have ever seen before.

It's go-for-broke enjoyable mayhem for those who like that sort of thing. Just be sure to wait to watch until the kids are in bed.

Turn it on for a satisfying snicker as we all pick up our briefcases and beat each other to death.
June 22, 2017
Between the barebones plot, the wooden main characters and the lack of good satire, there's just not enough here to really justify the 13-episode treatment.

There's a lot of great television out there that in its elegant minimalism, nuanced commentary, and understated performances give us thoughtful examinations of the human condition ... Sometimes you just wanna watch some Bad Dudes get blood-drived.

What's surprising about the premiere is how slick it is.
June 15, 2017
It's as painfully boring as watching someone hit his fingers repeatedly with a hammer in an attempt to shock you.
June 14, 2017
It is miles ahead of Sharknado (which also lives on Syfy) and on the whole well-produced and directed, though its effectiveness varies from episode to episode and even from sequence to sequence.
June 14, 2017
In a medium prone to artistic pretensions, some realized and some damningly elusive, there's some value in a show that just aspires to be a bloody, leering, disreputable hoot and largely succeeds.
June 14, 2017
If grindhouse TV wants to thrive in the medium, it needs to put its shocks and flesh in service of something more than a game of perpetual provocation and one-upmanship.

While it is no heir to what Rodriguez and Tarantino did, Blood Drive is an indulgent Grindhouse for all the modern direct-to-video goofiness and weirdness you can only watch at home now anyway.
June 13, 2017
The channel has recently favored slick, futuristic dramas, full of gleaming cities and high concepts, but Blood Drive is a gleeful detour into grindhouse gore and raunch.
June 13, 2017
Like any good Grindhouse affair, Blood Drive is a cacophony of bloodshed, debauchery, and puerile humor, and it's infinitely more fun than it's actually good. Fortunately, it's a lot of fun if you have the right disposition.

The sets are pretty cool, which may sound like I'm being flippant, and I am, but because that's exactly what the designers are going for.

Ultimately the charm of dialogue like, "Hand up! Turn around! Drop the leg!" is difficult to resist.
