Bloodsucking car.
8 September 2010 | by HumanoidOfFleshSee all my reviews

"Ferat Vampire" is the story of the nurse who is hired by Ferat manufacturer to drive new model of a car during races.A physician thinks that Mima's racing car is using human blood instead of petrol."Ferat Vampire" was actually shown in Polish cinemas and television during early 80's.The film is a bizarre mix of horror,black comedy and sci-fi and it features prototype model of Skoda car.The acting is decent and there are some shocking surprises and plenty of delicious black humor.If you are new into Czechoslovakian horror watch "Upir z Feratu" in pair with "The Cremator".One thing for sure:I'll never look the same at black Skoda again.7 racing cars out of 10.
