Drive-In Massacre – 1977 – United States

A sword-wielding maniac beheads people at a drive-in theater. Two pudgy middle-aged police detectives investigate. The theater was built on the site of a carnival and is staffed by former carnies, but this fact is irrelevant to the plot. The detectives unsuccessfully question a series of mean, seedy, or pathetic suspects. The theater manager cruelly abuses his staff. A peeping tom cracks during interrogation and admits, “I just wanted to beat my meat!” An imbecilic janitor gets fired for helping the detectives.

Before the credits, a message warns viewers to be careful while attending drive-in theaters.
