SyFy hat die Tage nicht weniger als 10 Teaser zu ihrer neuen Grindhouse-Serie Blood Drive rausgehauen, eine Trash-Serie über Killer-Autos – und es gibt prinzipiell sehr viel zu wenige Filme und Serien über Killer-Autos. Ich kenne tatsächlich nur zweieinhalb davon: Quentin Dupieux Rubber (der halbe), Peter Weirs The Cars that ate Paris und der tschechische Horrorfilm Upír z Feratu (dt. Der Autovampir, hier die Szene mit dem lebenden Blut-Motor), den ich damals in ZDFs Der Phantastische Film – das Intro! – gesehen hatte. Jedenfalls: Blood Drive, vermutlich sowas wie Z Nation mit Steampunk-Post-Apokalypse, möglicherweise als Anthologie. Ich bin skeptisch, aber hey: Fleischautos. -->
In the tradition of classic grindhouse movies, BLOOD DRIVE is a new series soaked in high-octane chaos and just barely approved for television.

During a routine trip to the mall, 15-year-old Jesse’s best friend is violently attacked at random. The attackers do not confront or acknowledge Jesse, and Jesse does not engage or pursue the attackers… he simply backs away. Why did this happen? Could Jesse have done more? Did he have an obligation? These are the questions posed by VIOLET, a carefully calibrated character study of the process of coping in the midst of senseless trauma. Shot partially on 8-perf 65mm film by acclaimed cinematographer Nicolas Karakatsanis (Bullhead, The Drop), Bas Devos’ meticulously calculated debut is constructed like a series of lush photographs. In each of the film’s compositions we see a sophisticated mosaic of loss, the permanence of trauma, and the tumult of youth.
