As the movie goes on, Archie undergoes the awkward process of feeding people to his car, to the point where he begins to lose sight of who he is as a non-confrontational human being with morals. There's not really much to say as far as that's concerned, though. This isn't a movie full of character depth. You're essentially watching the lead character get in over his head with his blood-consuming automobile and descending into madness as a result. In the meantime, we get some comedy that's more hit than miss in my opinion.
The actor who plays Archie reminded me a lot of Walt Jr. (RJ Mitte) from BREAKING BAD, which is either an insult or a compliment depending on how you look at it. Playing his friend who initially supplies him with wheat grass is Anna Chlumsky. This was actually the first feature-length film she did after a long hiatus from the movie industry. Her character, Lorraine, is basically the undesirable of the two lead female characters. She's the brains and likability to Denise's raw sex-appeal and good looks. In other words, Lorraine is the one you'd want to marry and Denise is the one you'd want to fuck. Personally, though, if I were Archie, I would have easily gravitated more towards Lorraine than, but that's mainly due to my long-standing Chlumsky Chrush.
The writing in particular is a highlight. And yeah, if you want to look deeply enough into the film, it does make a commentary on a number of things. But mainly it's just funny. This has quite possibly the funniest car-jacking in the history of cinema. Yeah, that's right, I said it: "history of cinema". In the end, I was initially a bit let down by the fact that BLOOD CAR kinda falls apart (the movie, not the actual car), but, in hindsight, perhaps it's only appropriate that the film just derails at a certain point. Still, this ended up being a nice surprise and a lot more enjoyable than I would've expected.
