I bought this video for three bucks. The front of the video box cover had a guy with a huge knife hanging out at the Drive-In. I couldn't resist. I should have resisted but I was weak. That knife was HUGE! Who knows what that lunatic was going to do with it? Well, I'll tell you what he did with that knife. Not much.

"Drive-In" epitomizes the word "padding". Somehow the filmmakers got their hands on a lot of Troma footage and decided to base a movie around it. The "movie" playing at the Drive-In was gory clips from Troma flicks. If it wasn't for the nonstop Troma footage unspooling on the screen, I would have been truly disgusted at this lame movie. Instead, I'm only mildly disgusted.

"Drive-In" is lame. The kills are lame. The gore is lame. The acting is lame. Everything is lame. Some big hulking idiot wanders into the Drive-In and starts killing people. There's no suspense since no one is even aware that this maniac is in the Drive-In until the last twenty minutes of the movie. Somehow this giant lunatic manages to sneak up on people without even trying. He just keeps wandering around opening up car doors and killing whatever dolt happens to be sitting there.

Don't waste your time with this one.

SCORE: 1 out of 4 rundown drive-ins
