Drive-in Massacre (1976)

“So a couple of horny kids got themselves chopped up by some kook… So what?”

A rash of violent murders at a local drive-in spurs an investigation by detectives Larry (Bruce Kimball) and Mike (Adam Lawrence).

Genres, Themes, Actors, and Directors:

  • Horror
  • Serial Killers

Response to Peary’s Review:
As Peary points out, the title of this “cheap horror film” is the best thing about it by far. It starts off with an interesting premise, and has a few scenes of genuine shock and gore (i.e., the first couple getting murdered in their car); after this, however, it’s slow-going, poorly acted, and utterly lacking in suspense.

Redeeming Qualities:

  • Douglas Gudbye’s performance as Germy, the mentally disabled janitor

Must See?
No; despite its minor cult following, this one is for hard core slasher fans only.


One thought on “Drive-in Massacre (1976)

  1. First and last viewing.

    Ugh. Just…ugh.

    Why this would be a title listed in any book – as one to consider watching for any reason – is beyond me. This is beyond bad in more ways than I’d care to count. And worse than that…it’s dull and, at just 74 minutes, seemingly endless.
