About

Greetings oh curious one,

     First off, Welcome and thank you for you interest in helping us achieve maximum... spookyness? This donation site could help us, with your help. We are thinking of bigger and better ideas for the next season (Season 6) and with your patronage we can achieve as many of these ideas as we can and possibly more.

For the uninitiated, Drive-In Movie Maniacs is somehow an award winning, nationally syndicated television show on Retro TV, The Action Ch. and The Family Ch. along with various other local stations across the nation. We have also been covered in local to national magazines like "The Pitch, Kansas City", "Space and Time" and "Rue Morgue". We got to these places thanks to our viewers.  
     
Since premiering in 2013, Drive-In Movie Maniacs have produced 37 Episodes for a total of 5 seasons under a restrictive nano budget. Our aspiration is to deliver a new breed of horror hosting, from running a muck at Planet Comicon, disturbing ballets about Dracula, visiting the gates of hell in Stull, Kansas only to get run out by the towns folk and the sheriff to annoying celebrities, bands and others for interviews.

To deliver our brand of horror hosting zany antics, we need to step up our budget. That's why we are here.

YOU will help us produce: (not in this order)
- More episode(s) per season - Want one more episode a season? TWO!!?? That would be doable. 
- Bigger production ideas - One such idea is we want to showcase drive-ins in other cities and towns.
- Our own brand of events - Everybody likes a con...hmm, that came out wrong. Convention that is. 
- Showcase a more diverse movie collection - which means episodes with films that will require licencing fees
- A better website - which will open the doors to upgrades and MERCH, MERCH and more MERCH!!! (Streaming, t-shirts, pins, vinyl posters to fart sprays, who knows, the possibilities are endless) **New Merch available @ https://driveinmoviemaniacs.com/ , Halloween 2019!!!

Crematia Mortem, host of Kansas City's "Creature Feature" from 1981-1988, passed the horror hosting torch to Terrible Tim proclaiming that, "Drive-In Movie Maniacs hold the Keys to Creepy Town". We want to make sure that town is as creepy and exciting for everyone as we can make it. 

Thank You for your time & See You On The Dark Side
Terrible Tim and Drive In Movie Maniacs
Goals
$0 of $325 per month
Our first step.
As of now we operate with a skeleton crew, each of us taking on many roles while contending with our personal lives. This would be the supplemental income that would allow us to spend more time and effort on this rather than other stuff.
  • Semi-major equipment upgrade
One of our biggest needs has always been audio. We do not have adequate audio equipment nor a person to capture it properly. Not only would we be able to pay someone to run the equipment we have right now but with this goal we should be able to also provide them with proper equipment. One such item would be wireless lavaliere mics for our interview segments, along with other things such as field recorder, mic accessories, boom pole, etc.

  • Partial Merchandise release
Also at this point we should be able to start producing merch ideas such as
1. Clothing Items – T-Shirts and possibly Hoodies.
2. DVDs – We have a lot of episodes to release to dvd yet and want to deliver you a professional quality product. Reach this goal and we will be able to start releasing consistently.

3. Novelty Items - Pins, sticker packs, vinyl posters, VHS copies of episodes, etc
