'Blood Car' is essentially a one-joke scenario that never quite adds up to the sum of its mangled body parts.

Sight and Sound

satirise[s] the ethical, social, ecological and geopolitical exhaust left by America's all-consuming love affair with the car, that great symbol of status and mobility, in a world increasingly running on empty.

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!

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;… More

Not what I thought it would be, but actually better. A thoughtful yet crude satire on social status and our energy and gas concerns. Yes, some gore to be… More

Not for everyone...but should be. For those people will not be enriched, as it were. Basically: A man invents a car engine that runs on human blood....let that… More
