Set in the very near future where fuel prices are at an astronomical high and no-one can afford to drive any more, vegan schoolteacher Archie (Brune) is trying to invent an alternative engine that runs on wheatgrass, but when he accidentally cut himself he discovers that all his engine needs to work is blood… human blood. Resorting to ever more shocking and extreme behaviour to keep his blood car on the road, Archie draws the attention of the government and sex-crazed meat vendor Denise (Rowlett), much to the disgust of lovesick Lorraine (Chlumsky) who, until now, has been supplying him with the much-needed wheatgrass.

Originally shot in 2007, low-budget black comedy Blood Car gets a theatrical release in the UK. Dave finds out if it’s been worth the wait...
Blood Car is the story of Archie Andrews (Mike Brune), a clean living kindergarten teacher and all round nice guy. He lives in the near future, where petrol prices mean that nobody drives and cars fill up car graveyards, where teenagers do what teenagers do.
When he's not educating children or being the unrequited love interest of the owner of the Veg-Table, a little food shack in the middle of nowhere, he's an inventor, working on a wheat-grass engine. It's not coming along very well, so he decides to down bottle after bottle of vodka, accidentally cutting himself and discovering his engine works when he supplies it with blood.
Finally, able to fuel his car for the first time, the women are throwing themselves at him – well, »
Harrelson looks scarily at home as the most corrupt cop in Los Angeles: drinking, smoking, cheating and brutalising his way to notoriety, then stubbornly denying all culpability. It's less a straight cop story than a fragmented study of a – personally as well as professionally – rotten man. There's almost too much in the mix, but it's told with great style and anchored by a fearsomely committed performance.
Safe House (15)
A spy thriller that gives you what you'd expect: Washington as a suave rogue spy; Reynolds as the rookie who brings him in; frenetic action; double crosses; shifting allegiance; and a bit of waterboarding for kicks.
