Wow, just wow. Low budget and seriously bad acting. Even the kills are lame. I cannot see recommending this to anyone. Just an obnoxious film. Look, I get the puns and spoof angle, but it's still a complete waste of time.
I found this movie in the free movie database on our digital t.v.service. This is just a fun slasher movie. The slash-metal music thataccompanies the kills is different than other slasher movie music, andin a good way. It complements the brutality of the murders. Thedialogue for the first scene of the movie was a little annoying, but itimproved as the movie progressed. I enjoyed the amusing characterplayed by Larry Joe Campbell, and of course the leading actress,Leighton Meester, was looking very hot. There was actually a prettygood plot line for the movie to build around, and some of the murderswere original for this genre of movie. All in all, I give it an eightout of ten stars. Good music, plenty blood and gore, hot girls, descentacting by the front actors, a little humor, and a bad@ss clown make foran enjoyable slasher movie.
WOW, it's interesting to see the variety of reviews of this film. Theones who liked it must have been drugged or related to the filmmakers!This movie had good actors and apparently a large budget, but thescript sucked! Nothing about the story made any sense...absolutegarbage. The only redeeming thing about this movie besides the factthat I watched it for free is the "wigger wannabes" get killedimmediately in the beginning. The "kills" were very imaginative andcould have worked well had the script made sense. My advice to thedirectors would be "hone your directing skills and leave the writing tothe professionals"! Don't waste your time on this one.
'Drive Thru' is a very deranged comedy that seems like it was directedby some pothead like Danny Leiner.Surprisingly, it's not a bad movie.Ithas it's share of blood, gore, violence, and what horror movie likethis one wouldn't have any humor?It's like 'Eight Legged Frieks' and'Tremors', except the killer is not a giant spider or an undergroundworm.I watched this movie for free on Fearnet On Demand a year ago justto see if it was any good.For 83 minutes, I sat through which appearedto be a dumb horror movie, yet a somewhat smart comedy.If you enjoymovies about killer clowns who butcher people, then 'Drive Thru' is onthe menu.Would you like some blood with your order?
Drive Thru is one of the top 5 horror movies of all time in my book.Everything comes together so well - the fast paced action, the subtlepolitical innuendos, and the suspenseful plot twists are all perfectlybalanced to create the ideal horror movie experience.The actors all play their roles to perfection - Jan and Hunter from theoffice!!! - and the soundtrack is nothing short of spectacular. Thecharacter meet their deaths in a widely entertaining variety of ways(mostly involving a clown with an axe).The guy from Supersize Me makes a highly ironic cameo as a fast foodcashier, which was a great creative casting twist.SPOILER ALERT!! Snape kills Dumbledore!You will be left speechless at the end of the movie, which has a twistof a magnitude unheard of since the Sixth Sense. I am anxiouslyawaiting the sequel, Drive Thru 2 starring Keanu Reeves.
I really did enjoy this movie. I still do the costume of horny theclown is the best iv seen in a while the music was great. I don't carewhat others mite say but I hope a 2nd one does come out to entertain myfriends and I again. It mite not be the best ever but it is a greatfilm to watch with your buddies. From the comments on the movie that Ihave seen is just awful how they say thats the movie has so much thatswrong with it but to me I think this movie is attracted by the youngercommunity rather the older. Iv had a few of my friends to watch themovie and they feel the same as I do and we are excited of the thoughtof a drive thru 2.
I saw this movie in an ad for upcoming dvd releases and I had to get it. The first copy I got was a promo and was worthless, but I recently bought the dvd to watch the movie. IT SUCKS! The clown is becoming the killer in ever horror movie that is put out by anyone these days. The worst of them being Mr. Jingles. This movie has many plot holes and doesnt really add up. The clown is killing people and he is a mascot, but the resturant was barely used in the film. I thought it would have been used more and could have been at least more fun. This movie has ever basic cliche that todays straight to dvd horror movies have and I cant believe the ending to this movie. Im surprised because ive seen alot of straight to dvd horror films and Amazon critics are not kind to them. Ive seen some that are good, decent, and some that I cant belive that I wasted my money on. This movie had some moments but all in all, it really sucked and im surprised some people enjoyed this film.
I rented this one based on largely marginally positive reviews i'veread, expecting a fun little gory horror flick, what I got however wasa pretty uninspired "Nightmare on Elm Street" retread, but with a clownfast food mascot. The jokes fall extremely flat and the horror justisn't there. Plus it has a non-ending ending of the kind that I'vereally grown to detest throughout the years, leaving it open for asequel which i'm not hoping for in the least bit. Perhaps it would havehelped the film if any of the characters were fleshed out in the leastbit, but the way it is now the movie had me thinking about how muchcreepier it might have been if it was about a deranged Burger Kingmascot (YOU watch those commercials and play Sneak King and NOT beterrified). Oh yeah before I forget the film also can 'boast' (and Iuse the term loosely) a forgettable cameo by Mr. Super-Size Me MorganSpurlock, in a role so atrociously acted that one of the people fromthe group of individuals that he made fun of during a college lecturecan act circles act circles around (no I'm not going to use the term hedid, you have the internet, look it up) My Grade: D
This film is worth watching for just the first 15 minutes. We get some of the worst acting ever, and it's awesome. We have two white guys, and two white girls driving in a SUV talking like the blackest guys you'll ever hear. The dialogue is cheesy, and the violence is cheesier. Don't expect to be scared, or frighten, but be ready to be damn well entertained!
I personally thought that this was a pretty good movie with a GREATcast! Leighton Meister was amazing, and Nicholas D'Agosto did prettygood too. But, there were a few flaws that made it from becoming a 10.The cops were a total joke and were HORRIBLE ACTORS! The ending sucked,but if they are going to make a sequel, I can kind of get the ending.The 'wangsta' dudes in the beginning were a total joke and the moviewould have been much better off without them. Overall, I think therewere some good and bad parts, a great movie if you have some spare timeon your hands and if you don't take it too seriously.My Rating:7/10
"Drive-Thru" is a silly on purpose, comedic slasher that may be one ofthe dumbest films I've seen in a long while, but I still laughed allthe way through it. If nothing else, "Drive-Thru" will stick in yourmemory just for the fact that it features one of the most, if not THEmost, ridiculous looking horror movie villains ever captured on film.You know this is not going to be a serious slasher movie from theopening scene, when a car full of wanna-be gangsta white kids straightout of "Malibu's Most Wanted" pulls up to the local fast food outlet("Hella Burger") and come face to face with someone dressed as thechain's mascot, "Horny the Clown" (yes, really!) who dispatches thegroup in brutal fashion while spouting bad puns and one liners alaFreddy Krueger. Horny looks like the demonic love child of Freddy andRonald McDonald, and his appearance is bound to incite raucous laughterthroughout the film. He's not scary in the slightest (unless, ofcourse, you have a fear of clowns, in which case you probably wouldn'tbe watching this movie anyway!).From there, a group of Orange County high school slackers, led byMackenzie (played by the cute-as-hell Leighton Meester) and herboyfriend Fisher, begin to notice odd goings-on around their boringhome town of "Blanca Carne" (Spanish for "White Meat" -- haha!) afterthey fool around with an Ouija board at a party. Mackenzie beginsreceiving odd messages on her Etch-a-Sketch or Magic 8 Ball prior toeach grisly murder, and after a few of her friends start dropping likeflies, she realizes she's next on the menu unless she can unravel themystery of who's behind the Horny mask and why he wants her dead.OK, so obviously "Drive Thru" is not meant to be taken seriously in theslightest. That's OK as long as you've got a sick sense of humor, inwhich case this flick will be a total hoot. Sharp-eyed horror fans willappreciate the nods to "Nightmare on Elm Street," "Happy Birthday toMe" and other classic films that are thrown in as the movie rollsalong, and there are enough nasty bits to satisfy the gorehounds alongwith a pretty rockin' soundtrack (much of which is credited to one timeScorpions bass player Ralph Rieckermann, of all people!) The stuntcasting of anti-fast-food maven Morgan Spurlock (of "Super Size Me"fame) in a bit part as the head of the "Hella Burger" chain isparticularly inspired.I got this film on a cheap 4-pack compilation of similarly low budgethorror films (along with "Tamara," "Creep" and "Boy Eats Girl") andthough it was definitely the least impressive film out of the 4, "DriveThru" still provided a few chuckles. This combo of "Hamburger: theMotion Picture" and "Nightmare on Elm Street" should satisfy those witha craving for horror with a side of goofiness and a big helping ofcheese. It's a total junk food flick, and we all need one of thoseevery once in a while.
From start to finish, this is utterly irritating and infantileslasher-fodder of the type that makes you want to poke out your owneyeballs with a rusty spoon. This is the type of junk you've seen sixdozen of times before already, and every single one of them was betterand less insulting to your intellect. The plot is derivative ofapproximately fifteen other early 80's slasher films, the soundtrack isnefarious (for the last time: heavy-metal and suspense rarely mix!),the characters are insupportable stereotypes and the maniacal killer(yet another evil clown) is the complete opposite of menacing, with hislame one-liners and overly flamboyant outfit. The film opens with acouple of white trash guys who desperately wish to be black thugs andtheir arrogant behavior and incomprehensible slang pretty much sets thetone for the rest of the film. Seriously, are American teenagers reallythis stupid nowadays? Luckily they quickly get massacred by Horny theClown, the Ronald McDonald of fast food restaurant "Hella Burger"located in Orange County. The serial killer-clown continues his murderspree in the local high school, but his teenage victims Â andparticularly their parents Â appear to have something in common, namelya dark secret about a prank that horribly ran out of control and killeda nerdy kid on his 18th birthday party. The concept is as old as theslasher-film itself, yet the writers pretentiously act as if theyre-invent the genre and particularly the comical aspects miserably failtheir effect. There's zero suspense, or what else did you expect, andthe screenplay stupidly enough often hints at supernatural powers eventhough there's no logical explanation for this. The film tries to beintelligent, and distract you from all the plot-holes andimprobabilities, through its main character Mackenzie Carpenter. She'sa rebellious, opinionated and politically engaged teenager and,granted, Leighton Meester's presence and cute on screen charisma isunquestionably the movie's main strongpoint. Yet, she also still makesa couple of stupid decisions and all of her friends, including herhorny boyfriend, are more than dim-witted enough to compensate for hercleverness. The gore is pretty decent, I have to admit, but overall"Drive Thru" is a totally insignificant movie.
Hands down one of the worst movies I have ever seen in my life. Now,why did I even watch it? Because the description of the movie soundedso awful, I thought I would watch it for a laugh. I found the movie oncomcast free movies on demand. I should have known what I was gettingmyself into. I never even heard of the movie before, even though itcame out this past year. Anyways, the movie was more than laughablybad, it was painful to watch. For one thing, the story line sounds likeit was written by a 10 year old. The storyline is so awful andpredictable. You'll probably predict the whole thing before the movieis even half over. The acting is even worse. Some of the worst acting Ihave ever seen. You will hate the characters guts; luckily most of themget killed. I just wish it were all of them but most is almost goodenough. The characters are basically a bunch of obnoxious, trashyteenagers with sewer mouths. Seeing them die is the best part about thefilm. Really, the movie's plot overall is about some murderous clownkilling certain people when they show up at his restaurant. His namewill make you laugh, it's Horny the clown. Oh and you have to hear thereason why the clown was killing a certain select of teenagers...Apparently the murderous clown once lived a normal life. He was asocial outcast who was bullied and it was by all the murder victimsparents, yeah that's right. The clown wanted to kill all of thechildren of the parents who made fun of him when they went to highschool together. So, the clown at one time was some poor, sadistic,pathetic loser. Oh, poor boy. I almost felt sorry for him... Not! Itgets better. The mother of the main character was the one the clown hada crush on. So he wants to kill her daughter on her 18th birthday andhere's another reason. The poor kid was killed by a fire by the maincharacter's friends; yes the parents of the murder victims killed himon his 18th birthday. Or was he killed? I think you can figure it out.The plot to this movie makes Lifetime movie plots look like academyaward winners. I mean, I find it funny that they actually tried to adda plot to a horribly directed movie such as this one. The moviewouldn't have been any worse without a storyline. In fact it might havebeen better.Overall the movie is about as bad as it gets. It's even suppose to be ahorror movie which is about as scary as Dora the Explorer. The moviewill have a lot of blood which of course looks so fake. Really, thismovie looks like one that was made by a local high school. Really, itwouldn't make any difference in the quality. My main warning overall isavoid this movie like the plague. It's beyond "so bad, it's funny".It's under the category "so bad, it's painful."
I haven't seen a weird one like this in quite a while! Well, as Iremember this movie, It's about some evil clown guy, who killed a bunchof this girls friends. Well, basically, I don't want to spoil thismovie for you, but this movie is a GORE-FEST! If you like peoples headsexploding in a microwave, then this is a movie you'll enjoy. I'dsuggest you look for it at a local best buy, they might have a copy for10 bucks. =]First off, I'd like to say, this movie, although is good, is verycorny, and looses it's plot quite a few times. But this is a slashermovie, if that's what you'd like to call it. This is basically like achain movie in my opinion. Girls go around dying, and no oneunderstands who's doing all this. Until the main characters mom finallyspills the truth. But the truth, is WAY out there. On a scale from oneto 10, this would be about a 4. This movie is VERY high quality though,and I respect it for that. This is not some low quality movie they madein the 70's just for screams, it seems as it was made, just to be made. Overall, this is a good movie. I didn't care for it to much, but Iliked it, as just a normal movie...
It's as simple as that. Don't like them? Well don't watch them, we don't need your complaining. Some people such as myself like this type of movie.On to the actual review. It's good. It's a ripoff of several other horror movies but not like 'Scary Movie' or anything. Acting isn't bad at all, it's not Brad Pitt level of course, but it's good enough for the average person. Good storyline even though it's largely from 'Nightmare on Elm St.'Definitely looking forward to DT2.
I didn't actually know about this movie until I came accross it on "On Demand. Once I read the description and noticed that not only does it feature a psychotic,teen-slashing clown but also his name is "Horny the Clown" well that's when I came to the following 2 conclusions 1)I laughed hysterically at the idea, and 2)I'm there Dude! So anyway needless to say this movie was a quick sell with me, simply because I thought it was unique to see both a psychotic killer clown but also his original and unique ways of giving the main character Mackenzie hidden clues as to who's next!(the ouija board,the magic 8-ball, and the etcha-sketch) What made this movie enjoyable in particular besides Leighton Meester being one super-smokin' mad HOTTIE is how it's reminiscent to me of the 80's slashers that I grew up with.(Friday the 13th,Halloween,A Nightmare on Elm Street.You know the ones!) Such great franchises they've proven to be over the years. With some bad sequels attached! Also Horny is just plain funny! Since everyone else here at Amazon have done some great reviews already all that leaves me with is: The chase scenes with Horny the Clown coming after Leighter Meester were indeed suspenseful, Horny's line where he shouts " You're my girlfriend now, and I'm horny!" cracks me up every time! Also it felt like a fond tribute to "The Funhouse" when Horny kills that snob couple in the funhouse/trick mirrors scene! That scene where one of Mackenzie's friends get her head nuked through the bottum of a microwave was one incomparably clever murder scene! My only criticizisms of this movie are that dreadful and annoying not to mention intrusive metal music and that whole unexplained thing with Horny possessing supernatural/demonic powers! Other than that definitely watch this movie for that sweet Hottie Leighton Meester and of course Horny the Clown! And dare I say "It's Hella Good!"
I can't even imagine what must have been running through the directorshead when he did this movie... without any doubt, this is the worsthorror movie I have ever seen in my life! The story is plain: a madclown from hell (OMG, that's very original!), seeks to kill as manyteens as possible in the most brutal and horrific way. I'm sure ur veryimpressed and extremely anxious to see this great film but hold urhorses :) Drive-Thru is a real test of character because it takes areal man/woman to see this movie till the end, where, like all greatmovies, it leaves room for a sequel. The action is weak, the acting isweak, the screenplay is even weaker... the story is really overused andbeside the cool clown costume, it doesn't have anything worth watching.All the lines are unnatural and the young actors take it even morebelow the average.In conclusion, do urselves a huge favor and don't waste precious timeon Drive-Thru...
When I saw that this was going being TV, I thought cool. I know it wasgoing to bad, from hiring about off some b-movie site. But this wasreally bad, not as bad as Epic Movie ( How CENSORED like that got madeis beyond me), but still pretty bad. Our story beings with two really bad rapper wanna-bes and there braindead girl friends, after getting stoned, got get from a Drive-thrurestaurant at 2 AM! After getting mouth offed at by the guy at thevoice box thing the two guys sneak in to beat the voice box guy, Thiswhen things start getting dumb. The morons don't reallies the place isclosed, I don't know if was drugs they took or what but you have toblind not to see the place is closed, then there killed by a heavymetal reject from Killer Klowns From Outer Space! Won after the movie becomes this miss-mess of ideas, from other,better, movies. Here's a list of them: An Nightmare on elm street Happy Brithbay to me Gappa Well just those three I came name right now. heres a list of thingsabout this movie that make it so dumb: 1. The killer is a ghost, but they still killed him. 2. There is No WayOn God's green earth, that a character called Hory the clown would bealoud to saw to children. 3. No way in hell a TV ad, with behaver likethat would shown on TV burring the day! 4. Whean two losers are beingkilled in plane site, someone would have came to their aid! 5. horriblylame jokes, about AC/DC, Elvira and other stuff. 6. Microwave..... morelike cardboard box! 7. Very bad effects. 8. Very,Very, Very bad acting9. So her boyfriend is the killer now? 10. Careters pop in and out ofnowhere all the time 11. How the hell the mom known where her kid was12. So way was the ghost/killer whoring her about him? 13. HorrordlaHavey Matel rap sound track. So in short this is movie is like fast Food, BAD FOR YOU! Rating: 2/10
Well, the only reason why I ever saw this movie was because it caughtmy interest by the name of the clown: Horny the Clown. It had aninteresting plot and the face on the DVD cover reminded me of S.I.C.K.,and because of the experience I had with that movie, I was about tostay away from this film. Well I didn't. However, sadly enough, thismovie was better than S.I.C.K. for all the wrong reasons. Itessentially tells of the tale of a madman who is brutally killing youngteenagers while dressed as Horny the Clown. The catch is: this madmanmay not be human and his revenge spreads farther than just the teensthat he is stalking. First off, the acting was really bad in thismovie, the scares were not there and they were childish, it was reallyfunny and the plot was so predictable. The main thing that bugged mewas that it had nothing to do with a drive-thru.Let's get started. The acting. There was some good acting but otherthan that, the acting was really bad. Even at some of the most horriblescenes, where the dialogs had an exception of being bad, the dialogsand the acting was just plain bad. Not only where some of theperformances pretty bad, the dialogs seemed so scripted and unnatural.Even movies of this caliber, despite there bad plot and really cheesyscares, usually have some pretty descent acting, however, this moviewas horrible. They just seemed to not care about emotions or drivingforces and were there just to be there. It was very wooden.What about the scares? First off, there was no real scares, and thewhen there were "hauntings," they were horrible. It's not scary whensomebody gets there head microwaved, or deep fried, it's really quitefunny and stupid. Killing somebody in a child's play pen isn't scary,it's just plain stupid. I will give credit to the costume designer forattempting a reasonable outfit for the killer clown, because it waskind of cool and had its weird looking gadgets (i.e. the "flame"butcher knife). Some of the scares were so clichÃ© and very predictable,like you know who was going to die and the "jump out factor" was nextto nothing when it came to surprises. There was some blood and gore,but it was wasn't anything to be grossed out about. Because it wasaccompanied by bad scares and really awful clichÃ©s, the gore hadabsolutely no real effect on me and just looked like red jam slatheredon the walls or floor.As for the plot, well, like I said, it really did not have anything todo with an actual drive-thru and should have better off named"Restaurant" or "Horny the Clown." The plot could have been way betterand should have just stayed a psychopathic killer hunting downbeautiful girls with a predictable or semi-predictable twist, ratherthan something stupid and supernatural. The plot has some holes in itand evolves random visitations and a completely irrelevant Ouija boardthat says something that could have been told in a scarier manner.Plus, I never thought that I would see another movie where it was sopredictable down to the point where I knew who was going to die, basedon the music and the quiet and eerie silence. It was just an altogetherthing liquidly plot.Overall, this was hardly a horror movie, however, if it was labeledcomedy, then I would have a completely different review. There were alot of funny parts and most of them were very unintentional. This moviejust has really bad acting, no real scares and a stale plot withpredictable endings to add to it. To me, it was a half-baked idea thatcould have had a good chance of being something else, but they pepperedit with clichÃ©s and, what looks like, a last minute casting call. Iwould recommend this movie to anybody who does enjoy B-movies, as wellas college height movies, however, for those who enjoy a thickerpalette, then you may want to avoid this movie. Though, you may want torent if it you are looking for a good cheese filled laugh. I, on theother hand, did not enjoy it and that's my story and I'm sticking toit.
Mackenzie Carpenter (super-hottie Leighton Meester) is a typical teen on the verge of adulthood. She suffers from extreme boredom in her town of Blanca Carne (trans: White Meat). That is until a killer-clown named "Horny" starts chopping her friends and classmates into McNuggets! The vicious clown communicates w/ Mackenzie through a Ouija board, a Magic 8-Ball, and an Etch-a-Sketch, giving her vital clues as to whom his next victims will be! Can Mackenzie and her remaining friends (including Rachael Bella from The Ring) stop this bozo-berzerker, or will the bloodbath continue? DRIVE THRU is funny, gory, and even suspenseful in places. I enjoyed the goofy, dark humor and homage to 80s-type slashers. Watch for the death-by-microwave sequence, as it's a real goosher!...
