He takes a cab to the local cemetery, retrieves his belongings from a grave and lodges in a low budget hotel nearby an all-night donut shop.

Blood & Donuts go well together...
10 July 2000 | by snake-52See all my reviews

If you're a "B" movie fan, you can't help but like this film at least a little bit...

It starts out with news coverage of the lunar landing in 1969 for seemingly no other reason than to establish a reference in time and then shoots 25 years into the future. From here we meet a dim-witted cab driver and a donut shop waitress (whom the cab driver has a crush on).

Aside from the usual details, which nearly make up a plausible plot, they've also thrown in some interesting little details like when our hero get stabbed through the heart with a shovel handle only to remove it and announce, `Don't believe everything you read'.

From time to time this film does tend to move a bit slow, but in the classic `B' movie tradition the ending is not to be believed. really.
