Dead End Drive-In, 1986.

Directed by Brian Trenchard-Smith

Starring Ned Manning, Natalie McCurry, Peter Whitford, Wilbur Wild and Dave Gibson.


In an apocalyptic future where crimes rates have spiralled out of control and the economy has permanently collapsed, those in charge have found a perfect solution to the rise of lawlessness... Lock away the undesirables, criminals and low down dirty scumbags in the old Drive-in movie theatres, now converted into violent concentration camps.

Now when I think of Grindhouse films I think of poor acting, poor direction and editing, pointless stunts and boobs (18 minutes in, boob fans). If you feel like that and that’s your ideal movie then Dead End Drive-In is your film. However, inside this mouldy rotten tomato is a story that makes you watch it and think, ‘I liked that!’

Jimmy (Ned Manning) has a good family and he has a job, all be it a dangerous one, »
