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 ...

Excellent indie horror comedy.
20 July 2010 | by culturalvoidSee all my reviews

Blood On The Highway is an excellent independent horror comedy. If you like to see what a team of talented writers, actors and directors can create without a committee of Hollywood suits turning it into a boring safe money maker, this is your film.

This film is for fans of Evil Dead, El Mariachi, Henry Portrait of a Serial Killer, Clerks or Cannibal! The Musical.

The story is original, the script is well paced and doesn't feel like it is shaped around a tiny budget. The characters are well developed and portrayed. The jokes are frequent, big and well written, I found myself laughing hard and quoting some of the lines with friends. Comedy is very hard to pull off in movie and these guys have got it. The soundtrack is well thought out and occasionally funnier than the film. I've been to three screenings and always bring someone new with me to watch their reactions. I've bought three copies of the DVD, one for myself and two to give to friends.

This isn't a big budget Hollywood polished film. This is a film done quick and cheap. If you need to see Tom Cruise blow some stuff up every time you watch a film, this is not the movie for you, but if you like to watch a group of independent film makers really nail it, get a copy of this film.

I expect more good things from these guys in the future.
