Mini Review: Drive-Thru


Extreme boredom, plus a desire for a cheesy slasher flick led my friends and I (Chuck) to watch this zaney slasher called Drive-Thru. The 2007 film directed by Brendan Cowles and Shane Kuhn stars Leighton Meester (who as my friend Nate pointed out stars in Gossip Girls) and Larry Joe Campbell ("Andy" from According to Jim). The story follows the axe wielding mascot of the fast food chain Hella-Burger. This killer, named Horny the Clown, is hunting down and killing local teens. As the mystery unravels, the people of the town begin to figure out that the victims all have something in common.

This movie was a lot of fun to watch with the dudes in my dorm. There was plenty of hilarious dialogue to go with some pretty decent kills. You can tell when watching the movie that you aren't supposed to compare it with classic slashers like Friday the 13th or Halloween. The purpose isn't too scare the pants off of you, just to show you a bloody good time. The acting was good and the special effects were above average. If you go into this movie expecting an ultra-serious slasher, you will most likely be disappointed, however if you watch this with an open mind and a desire to be entertained, you might find this flick will suit your needs. Not a horror masterpiece by any means, but now a piece of garbage either.
