Dreaded Drive In Launches to Support the Public with Halloween Fun Amid the Pandemic

Old fashioned drive in movies drive foot traffic to local businesses while offering the public safe, outdoor fun.

From the creator of FunFlicks® outdoor movies, comes a new drive-in movie experience for Halloween 2020 – “The Dreaded Drive In,” (http://www.dreadeddrivein.com) Moviematix has teamed up with Independent Filmmakers to provide unique Halloween pop-up films to the public. Local businesses provide the parking lot venue for the public to “drive in” to the pop up drive in movie while ordering food from their establishment. Moviematix will provide the film set up and ticket venue for the public to buy tickets, while Independent Film Makers have provided unique one of a kind Halloween films to showcase Indie film makers that otherwise would not have the opportunity to share their films with the public.

“We wanted to support both local business, as well as the public during this pandemic. This was a way we could provide people an outlet to get out of their house, while having fun from the safety of their own vehicle while also helping small businesses, by bringing the public to them,” said Todd Severn, of Moviematix. “In addition, it helps independent film makers who otherwise wouldn’t have a forum to showcase their productions.”

Local businesses can provide their parking lot to host the event, while Moviematix runs the event – from arranging for the movie screen to selling tickets and promoting the event. Movie goers will have the opportunity to order food from the local business while they watch the movie from the safety of their own car.

Local businesses will have the opportunity to choose from more than 20 films – from family oriented comedy films to true horror flicks for the older moviegoers. Independent filmmakers and producers have curated a film anthology with “celebrity” hosts to create “The Dreaded Drive-in Horror Shows”. These fright flicks are crafted to entertain all age groups utilizing different episodes screened on different dates leading up to Halloween.

“Many of the traditional haunted houses won’t be able to operate given pandemic guidelines, so we wanted to help by providing some fun to the holiday season,” added Severn.

FunFlicks.com has donated mobile drive-in theater equipment to host screenings in almost every State across the country.

Films include a variety of options depending on the audience the local business is trying to attract. Two of family films are children’s shows that have been designed using professional puppet mastery by recognized award winning entertainers. In addition a quad of deadly double feature episodes “hosted by Cryptina” will satisfy the humor and horror fix for almost any adult. Cryptina is a witty aspiring television icon – who will captivate your attention while entertaining you throughout the 90-minute shows.

Founder, Todd Severn says, “We’ve taken a challenging situation with the Covid-19 disruption of the entertainment industry and found a way to celebrate independent filmmakers creations, by screening their art with the nation’s leading outdoor movie event provider, FunFlicks.com.” “Not only are we entertaining America’s singles, couples & families, we’re creating a new distribution outlet for indie filmmakers.”

Tickets go on sale in October online at http://www.dreadeddrivein.com. Businesses that are interested in hosting a screening may contact Todd Severn at todd@moviematix.com
