3.0 out of 5 stars Funny, bloody, and over-the-top splatter comedy August 25, 2010
Format:DVD
On their way to Mr. Fire (an obvious take on Burning Man), three twentysomethings get lost after the neurotic wimp of the group, Sam, gets carsick all over their map. After taking a detour given to them by a roadside hillbilly, Sam, his gold-digging girlfriend Carrie, and best friend Bone, run low and gas and stop at a small gas station. Disaster strikes when Sam gets attacked by one of the gas station attendants, who happens to be a bloodthirsty vampire . . . along with the rest of the town! Luckily for our wayward tourists, the vampire townies are complete morons and there are still some survivors left willing to help them through the crisis. . . even if the other survivors are just as dim as the bloodsuckers.

Horror-comedy is a very hit-or-miss subgenre. . . but, it's mainly miss. The subgenre thrives in the low-budget/independent sector of cinema, mainly because schlock humour is cheaper and easier than quality production elements. Because of the sheer stupidity that comes along with the cheap humour and low-budget horror-comedies, the vast majority of the attempts are very, very bad.

`Blood on the Highway' took this risk and went for the comedy-horror blend on a low budget. For the rare time, though, it actually paid off. Sure, it's not the next `Dead-Alive' or `Evil Dead II,' but it is a surprisingly funny, original, and blood-soaked vampire romp through a Texan hicktown. For what was clearly a fairly low budget, the technical aspects of the film are actually not too shabby. The comedic writing is actually pretty laugh-worthy and definitely evoked some giggles, even if it is just a bunch of vulgarity delivered by some pretty bad actors.

3.0 out of 5 stars Blood on the middle road of the highway November 14, 2010
Format:DVD
There is a fine line between horror and comedy. Both have main characters that are usually hard to care about or get into. Both tend to have villains that are so generic they almost defy a namesake. In respect of these two examples, Blood on the Highway falls neatly into those categories. This doesn't necessarily mean the movie is unwatchable. As a comedy, it is like an archer that shoots like 10 different arrows at once, each arrow representing a different kind of humor, knowing that eventually something will find the mark. Thus you have every kind of humor represented here from the very crude (vomiting in a moving car; throwing dog crap at someone) to the more metaphorical (consumer as bloodsucker; Wal-mart as the mother of all evil spawning many little evils, etc.). The jokes and one-liners come fast and furious throughout the movie. There are also instances of attempted narrative subversion-a scene when you think someone is coming to save the main characters and that person ends up saying "f**k this, I'm going home" and then leaves. Although the humor and dialogue will be offensive to many, this writer appreciated it, because this is really how low-brow people talk when they have nothing to prove to anybody. As for the acting itself, well, you're not exactly going to get Olivier, much less Shaun of the Dead caliber performances and that particularly goes for Nicholas Brendon's brief on-screen cameo towards the end of the movie, whose sole purposes seem to be for exposition and for sellability based on his connection to Buffy. In the end, , it is what it is for a bottom of the barrel B-grade movie-shallow, insensitive, and incoherent at times, but then aren't we all?

5.0 out of 5 stars Great horror flick!!! May 18, 2010
Format:DVD
I saw this movie at the 2008 Madison Horror Film Festival and it was my favorite of the night. (It ended up winning the People's Choice Award at the festival) The casting is fantastic, the scripting is original and clever and the soundtrack is second-to-none. I have been eagerly waiting for this movie to hit the DVD aisle so I can buy several copies and give them to my friends. I have raved about this movie to them, but they can't fully appreciate the movie without seeing it firsthand. This movie is destined to become a cult favorite. Buy it with confidence.

3.0 out of 5 stars funny low budget vampire flick August 20, 2010
Format:DVD
Extremely low budget comedy about vampires. The humor is vulgar and juvenile but that's not necessarily a bad thing and at some points is downright hysterical. The acting is surprisingly good- the characters really grow on you and the dialog is very clever. My friend and I thought the main character looked a lot like Sarah Michelle Gellar and then Buffy's Xander (Nicolas Brendon) shows up although I thought his character was sort of lame and throw away.

This certainly isn't for everybody, or even most bodies, but I thought it was FUNNY and chock full of memorable, sympathetic characters.

5.0 out of 5 stars Divinely Sick October 20, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is like Evil Dead meets It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. I almost peed myself watching it. People call this low-brow humor, but then what do you call prime time tv, good? The days of Laurel and Hardy are over. This is a wonderfully perverse flick yet not as campy as the Troma line up. For independant films you really don't get much better than this. Support the outcasts of Hollywood!!!!
