“Blood Riders is a blood-soaked adventure comedy about 4 young friends who stumble upon a body after stealing a car. That discovery pushes the friends on a road trip around town during which they try get rid of the increasing amount of corpses. Along their wild ride the kids encounter neo-Nazis, punk artists, devil worshippers and a plan to resurrect Hitler.” – IMDb.com
Writer/director Lari Teräs weaves a blood-drenched tale in his feature directorial debut Blood Riders: The Devil Rides With Us.
After getting passed some bad ADR in the opening scene, I was able to settle down and enjoy this crazy ride. Blood Riders is, after all, a low-budget horror-comedy.
The story is balls out crazy, never really slowing down to catch it’s breath. Sure, there are some moments where the characters stop to reassess after being involved in a blood bath, allowing viewers to get in some of the all important character development, but for the most part it’s travel to a location with bodies in the car, to create another massacre to add to the body collection.
The young and mostly inexperienced cast is great; sure, there are some moments when the inexperience shows a tad, but this is certainly something to be expected and one aspect of indie filmmaking that I love. Caitlynne Medrek as Zoey in particular is spectacular, and is one of the many elements that raises this above most indie fare.
Overall this is certainly one I can recommend; though the comedy elements are subtle, the adventure these kids take will envelop you in the story, keep your eyes glued to the screen, and keep your heart pumping!
