BLOOD CAR - Cinequest Film Festival 2007
In the near future, gas is an astronomical $40.00 a gallon, and Archie Andrews has definitely had enough. Archie, a nerdy schoolteacher and vegan with a thing for wheatgrass, is determined to find an alternative energy source for his car. While experimenting, Archie cuts himself, and discovers that all his car needs is blood. Human blood.
The only one in town who can afford to drive, Archie attracts the attention of sex-crazed Denise. As Archie fulfills Denise’s need for transportation; he satisfies his ever expanding libido. Meanwhile, the sweet Wheatgrass Girl who loves Archie for who he truly is, watches helplessly as Archie is devoured by lust. In order for Archie to continue to attract Denise with his car, he must continue to find a never ending supply of blood. And unbeknownst to Archie, he is observed by government agents anxious to learn the secret of how his special engine works—agents who will make Archie face the ultimate decision.
Both a satire on our voracious habit for oil, as well as a cleverly structured horror film, Blood Car will make you cringe and laugh at the same time.
Preceded By: If I See Randy Again, Do You Want Me to Hit Him with the Axe?; Vivieno Caldinelli; 15min.; While trying to meet the season's quota, Karl, the most experienced and senior of lumberjacks, abuses his power when he carelessly chops off his subordinate's face.
