Storyline

The citizens of sleepy small town Fate, TX gather for the grand opening of Consumart, a shiny new one-stop-shopping box store. The eager consumers gleefully pour into the store as the doors open at sundown. Why is the grand opening at sundown? Who cares, they've got cut-rate prices on plasma screens and baby clothes! DVDs! Mayonnaise! Coffins! Coffins? And before they have to time to really question this item, terror ensues and the store erupts into a bloodbath. A few weeks later, three oblivious, self-absorbed twenty somethings - CARRIE, SAM, and BONE - head out on a road trip to Mr. Fire (a festival which shares only minor non-litigious similarities, all of a purely coincidental nature, to Burning Man) and accidentally wander into Fate, unaware of its population's ill-fated transformation... into vampires. Being that the heroes are 20-somethings, they do it. Carrie, a shallow hothead, is dating Sam's wallet, er, Sam, who is a whiny, naive, hypochondriac rich boy. Bone, a callous ...

Humor on terror - nice try, but failed.
6 October 2009 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

I watched this movie on Fantaspoa/2009. It was one of the worst movies in that festival (IMO, obviously). The main story is not bad, the effects are OK, the actors are up to the movie's grade. The movie starts slow, and it doesn't get much speed as time goes by.

But what I really didn't like on it is the movie's appeal to obvious clichés, and to pointing them out. In that same festival I watched "Pathogen". It amazes me the fact that "Blood on the Highway" was boring, while on the other hand a lower-budget movie made in a totally amateur fashion, with little to no planning was not. As stated by "toronaga", it may be considered "The 'Airplane!' of horror movies". It's just that I think it didn't fit. Whoever likes this movie, it's probably for the same reason I didn't.
