Blood Car (2007) - Horror Satire

Blood Car (2007) - The story of Blood Car is that in the near future Gas prices are over $40 a gallon so nobody drives. Archie Andrews (Mike Brune) works hard trying to come up with an alternative engine that be with a fuel made from wheat grass. Some of the character satire is that he is a vegan who tries to go through life not harming anyone. Archie is blind to the love of the wheat grass selling Lorraine (Anna Chlumsky) as he presses his single minded purpose seeking a solution to the energy crisis. When he accidentally cuts himself while working on his engine he discovers the solution fuel. Now a vegan in crisis can drain some of his own blood for fuel, but is this really a long term solution. In a field is the booth where he buys his wheat grass, across from it is the Meat shed, where Denise (Katie Rowlett) sells "Meat". She sees Archie driving his blood fueled car and suddenly he is very attractive to her. She comes on to him for a date to the drive in, humorous with people all sitting on blanket but no cars. His desire to have sex out weighs his vegan, harm nothing principles and soon he is killing people to feed the car the blood it needs to keep seeing Denise. Also there are government agents watching him, and their desire for his new car. This won't matter to the viewer though because this low budget satire is pretty poor and at this point in the film attention to the plot starts to fade. Will Archie choose the nerdy but pretty Lorraine over the shallow and slutty Denise? Will the Agents steal his invention? Will Archie be able to live with himself after leaving his principles behind? Good luck to those brave enough to go after this one.
