Drive-In Massacre (1976/Severin Blu-ray)

Picture: B Sound: B Extras: B Film: B

1970s horror fans everywhere will rejoice when they get their hands on Severin's incredible restoration of Stu Segall's Drive-In Massacre (1976), which is one of the best discs I've seen so far this year. Packed with great extras, this is a fantastic and fun B Horror movie that is full of memorable gore and is low budget filmmaking at its best. I had the pleasure of seeing a 35mm print of this film over the summer and am amazed about the difference in quality on the Blu-ray disc. If you haven't seen this gem, then this is definitely the way it was meant to be seen.

The film stars John F. Goff (who also co-wrote the film), Douglas Gudbye, John Alderman, Jacqueline Giroux, Bruce Kimball, and Janus Blythe.

If Jaws made you afraid to get in the water then this film will definitely make you afraid to go to the Drive-in! One rural Californian town is struck with terror as vicious murders start happening at a local Drive-in, but who is the sword-wielding culprit of these murders? Two cops search for the answers amidst the carnage and try to stop this killer before he strikes again!

Presented in 1080p high definition with a widescreen aspect ratio of 1.85:1 and a Dolby Digital 5.1 mix, the film looks and sounds loads better on Blu-ray than it has in any previous release. Once only available to watch on VHS, this film looks crystal clear with impeccable detail on characters and a sound mix that sounds great considering its age.

Special Features include:

Audio Commentary With Director Stu Segall

Drive-In Days: Interview With Star / Co-Writer John F. Goff

Norm Sheridan Recalls Drive-In Massacre

Making the Massacre: Interview With Director Stu Segall

Theatrical Trailer

This film is a lot of fun, even though it is a bit dated. I would definitely suggest checking it out if you have an infinity for low budget horror/slasher flicks!
