Autumn’s just around the corner but don’t give up all your summer fun just yet. Even as we roll into September, you can keep the spirit of the grindhouse alive on your home theater. The following is a list of a dozen ways to keep drive-in-friendly action rolling on your small screen as you prepare to transition into the fall season. Highlights include an underrated disaster movie that combines a runaway train with a killer plague, the most surreal blaxploitation film ever made, the best of the Conan The Barbarian ripoffs and a genuinely chilling serial killer movie that doubles as a critique of youth culture. Hunt them down and remember you can make any night a drive-in night on your small screen.
