EP_BOX SET_Blood Drive_April 18
Forget green energy – in this sick road race, engines run on red…
This one isn’t for the faint of heart. Embracing the grindhouse genre with gleeful abandon is Blood Drive, a firmly tongue-in-cheek gore-fest which was launched in the US with its very own complaints hotline.
Set in a post-apocalyptic world, the series centres on a street race with a difference. A homicidal maniac and a desperate cop find themselves crossing the desert from Los Angeles to Phoenix, racing cars fuelled by the only energy source left: manpower. Starting with hot-pant-wearing girls feeding men into engines, the bravest of viewers will face cannibalism, demons, asylums, deadly sex plagues and much more on the outrageous race to the finish line.
“Blood Drive indulges its grindhouse elements with gleeful abandon - and balances its gory violence with smart, self-aware humour.” – Rotten Tomatoes Critics’ Consensus
“What fuels Blood Drive from first to last is the charisma of its leads, whose bodily excellence is certainly part of the bargain, but who manage also to stay interesting and sympathetic as characters throughout.” – LA Times
Starring Alan Ritchson (Smallville, Blue Mountain State, The Hunger Games), Christina Ochoa (Animal Kingdom), Colin Cunningham (Fallling Skies).
Box set starts 7.30pm Tuesday 3 April
