Kinky, witty, winking gorefest.

The cars run on human blood; the series runs on a wicked sense of humor.

Blood Drive, SyFy's new series, isn't a television show so much as a mashup of everything that's ever offended the Parents Television Council.

Officially, Syfy isn't subject to FCC rules, but what this weird-ass show gets away with goes well beyond anything you might have ever seen before.

June 15, 2017 | Full Review…

While it is no heir to what Rodriguez and Tarantino did, Blood Drive is an indulgent Grindhouse for all the modern direct-to-video goofiness and weirdness you can only watch at home now anyway.

June 14, 2017 | Full Review…

The acting on the Syfy show is very dicey. The romance plots are unconvincing and the story's fascination with the moral struggles of good-guy cop Arthur Bailey is unaccountable and misguided.
