“On August 10th in a California drive-in it all began…”
Drive-in Massacre is 100% seedy underbelly. Two schlubby detectives try to solve a series of sword murders at a rough little drive-in theater that’s run by ex-carnies.
Before you get too excited, it must be pointed out that this low-budget indie production isn’t so much a lost gem as it is occasionally dull but overall interesting oddity.
For me, the quirks and oddity outweigh the drudgery of some scenes.
Featuring lines like “I just wanted to beat my meat!” spoken by the peeping tom pepper the flick as do bursts of surprisingly decent gore.
They don’t make ‘em like this anymore.
