Review: Drive-In Delerium, The New Batch

Blu-ray: Drive-In Delerium, The New Batch (2017)

Clocking in at a mighty 373 minutes of mind-blowing gun-fights, motorcycle madness, car chases, heaving cleavages, marauding monsters, violent vigilantes, and FAR more besides, Drive-In Delirium, The New Batch presents 175 crazy theatrical trailers remastered in high definition, AND a bonus ‘VHS Delirium’ with 95 minutes of standard definition trailers…complete in 4:3 ratio and with tracking issues that we all came to love/hate.

This is the ultimate in ‘just one more’! You may think that its format of showing crazy trailer after crazy trailer would be perfect to just dip into for a quick viewing, but be warned, the temptation to watch ‘just one more’ will hook you in and have you missing whatever it was that you should have been doing.

It is also advisable to have a pen and paper next to you (or digital tablet if you’re not an old git like me) to write down the titles of movies that will inevitably fall into 1 of 2 categories:

  1. I remember this and want to watch it again
  2. I’ve never heard of this and need to see it

Yes, my credit card did come out after watching this amazing blu-ray, and you can watch the trailer below for one of my purchases. How the hell have I never seen Starflight One!?

Drive-In Delerium, The New Batch is something which has a lot of rewatch appeal. As well as wanting to rewatch the madcap action that plays out before your eyes to make sure that you really did see that! It is also a ‘must watch’ to show your fellow movie loving mates and will go down an absolute storm at a movie themed evening with drinks and snacks.

Added to the trailers are some amazing adverts that play out as if you are at a drive-in movie theatre, and add to the sense of crazy fun that is prevalent throughout its entire running time.

If you love movies, then you’ll definitely love Drive-In Delirium, The New Batch and should order it immediately.

I’m off to watch it again and see what else I can buy.
