(us) wrote: Nope, despite what it seems like, it's not your typical gay romance film. It doesn't try so hard to be overly sentimental or overly preachy about it but it's still a in-your-face kind of thing. It also doesn't try so much to comfort both its homosexual and heterosexual audience, with its graphic sex scenes (i.e. Frank Ripploh's sex partner drinking his piss) and its depiction of its protagonist who is very unfaithful and promiscuous. It also depicts the gay lifestyle in a more realistic way.
(us) wrote: Drive-In Massacre Starring: Jake Barnes, Adam Lawrence, Newton Naushaus, and Douglas Gudbye Director: Stu Segall A maniac is murdering the patrons at a drive-in run by a former carnival knife-thrower (Naushaus) and a dimwitted, former sideshow geek and sword-swallower (Gudby). Two homicide detectives (Barnes and Lawrence) have plenty of suspects, but will they find any leads before more bodies start to pile up? "Drive-Massacre" is a movie that feels like it made by starry-eyed amatuers--with its bad acting, shakey photography, and barely competently lit sets (which appear to mostly be location shoots--but since several of the principles involved (such as "Buck" Flowers and director Stu Segall) have credits to their names prior to 1976, this is just a subpar slasherflick. The worst thing about this film isn't the acting or weak photography or dialogue that is both badly written and badly delivered. The worst thing is that the creators appear to have been going for a gimmicky movie in the William Castle vein--Castle being a producer notorious for releasing movies along with rigged seats in the theatres that would vibrate at times during the film ("The Tingler"), with special glasses for the audience to wear in order to enhance the ghosts that appear in the film ("13 Ghosts"), or rigging up a network of ropes that let skeletons appear to fly from the screen to hover over the audience ("House on Haunted Hill"). Not only did they fail to capture the sense of fun that permeates Castle's movies, but they set the gimmick up backwards. ("Drive-In Massacre" takes place mostly in a drive-in, probably the same sort of place where this film was almost certainly exclusively screened. It deals with a sword-wielding maniac who's creeping around between the cars and killing patrons in pairs--another couple every night. So... the IDEA is that the audience should be getting the sensation that... that they shouldn't look around, because the maniac IS RIGHT OUTSIDE THE CAR!!!!!! But the film doesn't introduce this gimmick until, literally, the very end.) This is a film that's no longer has a proper outlet (are there any drive-ins left?) and, while it may be a serviceable entry on a "Bad Movie Nite" double- or triple-bill, it will only be genuinely entertaining if you've got friends who are witty as Mike Nelson and his Robot Pals. Primarily, though, "Drive-In Massacre" is little more than an artifact of a bygone theater format, and a botched attempt to create a "cinema happening."

I feel like an idiot laughing so much, when Sam really doesn't think it's funny. I remember the first time I watched this movie, my brother and I and some of his friends rented a few movies on VHS for a weekend movie night, and this was one, along with Monty Python's the Holy Grail. I laughed so hard at both those movies, what a weekend.I'm glad this film has become such the classic that it is, as there aren't many western-comedies (at least not good ones), and it's impressive how well this holds up 40 years later.Watched on DVD at home, with a very hungover Sam (it was her birthday party last night!), January 21, 2017.
