DRIVE-IN MASSACRE REVIEWED
“Drive-In Massacre” is a film about a rural California drive-in being plagued by a series of murders. Buck Flower co-wrote it and the director had a hand in some adult fare. Are you starting to see pictures now? Good, because whatever you can imagine is far more entertaining than what’s onscreen. I love horror films and I take my time to enjoy the deep cut history of what’s presented. It’s just that Sword Guy and his carny friends aren’t enough to keep me riveted.
While the film plays at an insanely short 74 minutes, I could’ve knocked 15 minutes off the first act. I get the appeal of sheer impact horror. It’s just that legwork will only take you so far in a paper-thin world. Quit trying to thrill an audience and just hit them in the face. The same could be said about many horror films, it just felt incredibly apt here.
