Get uncomfortable…! In the tradition of classic grindhouse movies, Blood Drive(premiering June 14 at 10/9c on Syfy) is a new series soaked in high-octane chaos and just barely approved for television.
After Los Angeles’ last good cop (Alan Ritchson) is forced to join a twisted cross-country death race, his only hope of survival is a dangerous femme fatale who has the need for speed (Christina Ochoa).
Oh, and forget gasoline… these cars run on human blood!
The Overlook Film Festival announced its lineup today and one of the key announcements was that legendary independent writer-director-producer Roger Corman would receive the festival’s first Master of Horror Award.
The festival has an impressive feature film and shorts lineup – including four world premieres (Blood Drive, Still/Born, Capture and Primal Screen) and such anticipated films as Lady Macbeth, Metal Machine Kodoku and The Untamed.
There will also be a festival-long immersive horror game and much more.
Over its inaugural weekend, the Overlook Film Festival will present 37 films (20 features and 17 shorts from 16 countries) – including a secret closing film described as ‘a hotly anticipated film from a bold voice in film.’
Syfy has unveiled its Summer 2017 schedule and there’s only one new series (but it sounds very Roger Corman-esque). Also included: one movie, one returning unscripted series and four returning dramas – plus a return to Comic-Con for more and thorough coverage of Nerd Prom (trust me, I’m a nerd…)
The new series, blood Drive, is about the last good cop being forced into a cross country race in which the cars are fueled with human blood (very Roger Corman, right?).
The new movie is (wait for it…) Sharknado 5; the returning unscripted series is Face Off (possibly my favorite unscripted series ever).
Back for more are: 12 Monkeys (10 episodes over three nights), Dark Matter, Wynonna Earp (actually better than the graphic novel that spawned), and Killjoys.
