Stu Segall started his career in 1970 directing, producing and writing sexploitation and hardcore adult films. He worked with some of the greats like Rene Bond (Teen-Age Jail Bait), Marilyn Chambers (Insatiable) and even the heavily-hootered Uschi Digard (C.B. Hustlers) and directed around twenty films in that time. In the mid-eighties he went "legit" when he got a gig producing the Frank Lupo created "Hunter" television show starring ex-NFL player Fred Dryer and the gorgeous Stepfanie Kramer. He would go on to produce other shows like "Silk Stalkings" and Lorenzo Lamas' "Renegade" (also starring the lovely Kathleen Kinmont!) but stuck in between there somewhere was his lone horror movie; Drive-In Massacre.

There is nothing that makes me happier than a good old-fashioned slasher flick. The onslaught (see what I did there?) of hack-n-slash horror movies in the '80s made this then 10-yr-old boy the fan he is today. When the VHS rental boom happened and I was finally into my teen years, I would comb the entire store for these movies with covers featuring a killer holding a knife or chainsaw or maybe even an axe. Yeah, sometimes these gems would be thrown in with the Thrillers (DePalma's films were notoriously here), Dramas and even Action (Maniac Cop, anyone?) but they couldn't escape me! The only way I missed one is if it was always checked out which seemed to be the case with Rick Roessler's Pig Farm Massacre aka Slaughterhouse.
