Did You Know?


When Billy kills the snack-bar girl he pulls the phone receiver cord out of the phone, but when the manager finds her body the sound effects included the high-pitched buzz of a phone that has been left off the hook. Without the phone cord between the phone and receiver the phone can't make that noise. See more »

I'm a fan a horror movies and I really don't like to judge movies just on their budgets, but rather try to find redeeming qualities about the films. Slasher films aren't the cream of the, after all. DRIVE IN wasn't the worst slasher flick I have ever seen. It was a bit cheesey in parts and the acting was questionable, though I thought the lead actress/heroine did very well with what she had to work with. The story is about a mentally retarded boy named Billy who grows up across from a Drive In movie theater that plays nothing but B-Slasher flicks. Well, they finally go to his head one night and he escapes his house and goes on a murderous rampage at the Drive In. I am not a fan of extreme gore, but I do think that this is one thing that would have helped this film. The clips of the movies that the Drive In was playing were pretty gory, but the actual murders were not. We get off screen stabbings, strangulations, and *something* that happends at a Merry-Go-Round. It was too dark to tell. It was a good effort and definitely a good premise, which could have been pulled off a lot better in the hands of a more creative film crew. The ending was a little rushed too......Overall, if you are a die-hard horror fan, you might want to see this, but if you like the polished, big-budget SCREAM0-type films, avoid this like the plague. 5 out of 10.
