“For B-movie fans looking for offbeat night owl viewing.” - DVDTalk
This fearlessly odd drama features Jack Nicholson — then only 21 years old — in his first feature film. He plays a young delinquent who thinks he may have killed one of the two thugs who were pursuing him. He hides out in a local drive-in where he takes three hostages and barricades himself with them in a storeroom. Police surround the place and try to negotiate with the frightened boy but even his friends cannot reach him. Meanwhile, the media has learned of the situation and soon a TV news crew arrives followed by a crowd of spectators. Soon concessions are being sold, and the event becomes a circus. Truly unique, even among the off-kilter works of its producer Roger Corman!
