It should have been a simple drive home, but suddenly model Nicole (Stella Maeve) finds herself stuck in her car that's flipped over beside the road, with her boyfriend Scott (Evan Taubenfeld) in the passenger seat dead. Not sure yet what has happened, Nicole in her panic dials a random number and gets on the line with Casey (Michael Madsen), a total stranger who at first seems happy enough to help her, even if Nicole herself has no idea where she actually is. At first, Casey (on the phone) has a calming influence on Nicole, too ... but eventually it turns out that he knows much more about her than he ought to, and he takes particular exception to Scott, who he says is no boyfriend material as he is known to beat women. Now Nicole finds herself in a weird situation, she has to justify her relationship to Scott, even though she knows Casey speaks nothing but the truth, but she also has to keep Casey happy, who turns out to be more and more of a psycho, but he's her only chance out of the car wreck, as somehow her cellphone has gotten out of her reach so she can't call anyone else. And the fact that the tyres of the car she's in have caught fire and the area is teeming with snakes and wolves, plus the blood rushing to her head from being stuck upside down, don't really make for a promising premise ...


Blood Rush is a mighty interesting little thriller, as it intentionally limits itself to a very, well, limited location (the inside of a car), plus the lead character's upside down most of the time ... but that said, the film has more than just oddity value, it's actually a pretty exciting game of (verbal) cat-and-mouse that's not only greatly structured, but Stella Maeve and the always dependable Michael Madsen do their best to bring their characters to life, plus the camera gets the most out of what little it has to go with (out of narrative necessity) ... and the result is mighty cool indeed!
