Massacre (1976/Severin Blu-ray)
B Sound: B Extras: B Film: B
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.
film stars John F. Goff (who also co-wrote the film), Douglas Gudbye,
John Alderman, Jacqueline Giroux, Bruce Kimball, and Janus Blythe.
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!
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.

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!
