Blood Car review

Rev up for some premium B-movie schlock

The level of enjoyment watching this lo-fi satire is directly proportional to a reverence for B-movie schlock and tolerance for self-indulgence.

Because writer/director Alex Orr is just a little too pleased with his deliberately shonky horror-com charting the lengths vegan schoolteacher Archie (Mike Brune) will go for sex in a world where petrol is prohibitive and he’s invented a ride that runs on grue – starting with dead dogs and working his way up.

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