88 Films to release Drive-In Massacre on Blu-ray

drive-in-massacre-bluray-tbcA year before the slasher boom really hit its stride with John Carpenter’s legendary trendsetter HALLOWEEN, there was DRIVE-IN MASSACRE – an early slice and dice prototype that is finally achieving its rightful reappraisal courtesy of a brand new 2k scan from the splatter movie addicts at 88 Films! This worldwide HD debut indicates that DRIVE-IN MASSACRE was, in many ways, ahead of its time – spinning a sleazy story about a clueless police investigation into a madman who is carving up spectators at outdoor cinemas across California! Introducing the sort of giallo framework that the post-FRIDAY THE 13th teen-kill genre would later take as its own, DRIVE-IN MASSACRE was directed with the expert grindhouse touch of Stu Segall, the man who oversaw Marilyn Chambers in INSATIABLE (1980) before producing such hit TV series as RENEGADE. A lively and lacerating bout of lunatic slasher energy, 88 Films is proud to give DRIVE-IN MASSACRE its worldwide BluRay bow in a new transfer approved by Segall himself!
