“An exploitation movie right down to the core, this is a down-and-dirty horror programmer with no artistic pretensions.” -- Nathaniel Thompson, Mondo Digital
Besides remaining the closest you’ll ever come to an actual seedy ‘70s drive-in experience, DRIVE-IN MASSACRE was one of the few true slasher movies to pre-date HALLOWEEN and FRIDAY THE 13TH.
It’s a hot summer night in Southern California, and the local passion pit is packed with patrons. When a sword-wielding psycho begins carving up customers, it gleefully unspools a grubby cavalcade of creepy carnies, peeping perverts, graphic decapitations and an ending you have to see/hear to believe. John F. Goff (THE FOG), Bruce Kimball (LOVE CAMP 7) and co-writer George ‘Buck’ Flower (BACK TO THE FUTURE) star in this nasty slab of ‘70s sleaze.
