Drive In

"Horror movies don't create psychos, they give them ideas to copy..."

All throughout his childhood, a mentally deficient adolescent has been locked in a room, in the basement of his home, which is located right in front of a drive-in that frequently features amateur horror movies. The cumulative years of gratuitous violence make him a psychopath.

One night, while he is guarded by a violent babysitter who had badly locked his bedroom door, he flees and murders his keeper. He then crosses the road and attacks the adolescents in the drive-in, inspired by what the big screen taught him.





If it wasn’t for the lens that filmed this movie, it would without a doubt be known as a best of its genre. Say what you might, but independent moviemakers are the salvation of horror and cult movies. However, Drive-In doesn’t try to be different and clones Hollywood. It is why I had the impression of watching an English class assignment and not only a low quality movie like those of Full Moon Entertainment.

Unfortunately, it was deceived after only a few moments because the wrapping led me to believe that I had discovered something good. It isn’t a terrible slasher movie but the actors are for the most part pathetic and this lowers the level of realism. Still, the producers did not hesitate to toss furniture and restaurants in the air to help the realism.

The budget is probably limited to four digits by judging the quality of the images, the scene cuts and the lack of sensuality from the only girl they convinced to get naked. Also, the credits are projected on the screen of the drive-in in the opposite way that they scroll: pathetic error that is typical of a lack of qualified personnel.
