One of the best Killer Clown movies I've ever seen. Good blood and good story!

THE BEST HORROR MOVIE OF THE YEAR SO FAR!

"After reading the reviews for the Direct-to-DVD slasher flick, Drive Thru, I expected to like it. However, I didn't expect to consider it as being one of the best movies of 2007.
Drive Thru has just about everything that a great B-movie should. It has a lot of laughs, gore, and cheese. If only it had some nudity.
Most of the death scenes are fun, especially when the guy is cut in half, his guts spilling out. Then Horny The Clown says "that kid sure had a lot of guts." It's stuff like that that makes Drive Thru brilliant and one of the most entertaining movies of the year."
A Fun Horror Movie!

"Ok what is with all the bad reviews for this movie? Does no one have a sense of humor anymore?
Mackenzie (Gossip Girl's Leighton Meester) finds herself to be one of the many targeted kills of Horny the clown. Since he only communicates with her through innocent childhood toys, its up to her to save his next possible victims- and ultimately herself.
This is not a serious horror movie. And its not MEANT to be a serious horror movie. That fact is made blatantly clear with the plot: A knife wielding clown? Named HORNY? But that doesn't take away from the overall fun of the movie!
If you liked the horror movies of yesteryear, this movie is a really good homage using plot devices from Nightmare on Elm Street, Carrie, IT, Chucky... plus there's some good comic relief sprinkled throughout the film as well. The acting is definitely NOT bad. The woman who played Mackenzie's mother made me cringe a few times, but besides that, I think they all did a pretty good job with what they were given!
So bottom line: If you're looking to watch a serious horror movie, I would stick to Stephen King. If you're into kitch and stupid/funny horror (like me), then you'll like this."
Worth the "DRIVE" to the rental store!

"One thing I do before I rent a straight to DVD movie is...I flip the case over and look at the movie stills on the back. If there are no movie stills or if the stills look low budget, then I either don't rent the movie or I log on to amazon.com to check out the reviews. The stills on the back of DRIVE-THRU gave a good indication it wasn't cheaply made and could possibly be a hidden gem. And a hidden gem it was!
The leads were well cast. The one-liners were actually funny. And the villan was scary. Although the mystery surrounding has been seen before, because the movie was so well done, the worn-out premise is easily overlooked and works.
Scariest scene is when Horny's mask is torn off and his true face is revealed. How the heroine saves herself is brilliant! Let's hope the sequel is just as good!"
