Blood On The Highway--Trailer & DVD Release


I caught this film at the Dallas AFI Film Festival way back in '08 and haven't heard much about it since. It's a fun little romp, reminiscent of Evil Dead and Darkness: The Vampire Version (only way better) with loads of gorrific goodness to boot.

A synopsis of the film:

'After a gastrointestinal mishap with their map, three twenty-somethings on a road-trip accidentally wander into Fate, Texas, only to find the town populated by bloodthirsty, dimwitted vampires. A brutal run-in with two carnivorous convenience store clerks leads the three to take refuge with the town’s only surviving humans and prepare for battle with an army of the undead.'

The film also contains some of the most amazingly over the top quotes, designed to be completely offensive (and hilarious). Get a load of these:

Carrie: What the hell is wrong with this town? Those guys were, like, fucking rabid.
Bone: They had fangs. Those other two died pretty quickly when I put a stake through their heart. So, obviously... they're Lutherans.

Bone: Look, we are fucked! We're fucked like an autistic 8 year old at a NAMBLA meeting (if you don't know what NAMBLA is, Google-ize it).

Plus the head vampire killer sports a killer Black Flag tattoo. How fucking cool is that?

I learned today that it's finally getting a proper DVD release on June 29th. Hooray! You can pre-order it here.

Definitely check this one out.

Haha, great selection of quotes. Yay for horribly offensive statements that are made all in good, not-so-clean fun.

And that poster is wicked awesome.
