Nor do the new characters and villains do justice to the unique cast crafted in book one. Grace is less dimensional than the teenage wet dream to which she clearly owes her origins, while Popalong Cassidy is a catch-all antihero conceived on LSD and put to print on ritalin. And contrary to the book's cover, dinosaurs do not number among the hazards in this phantasmal caper. (I wouldn't be surprised if Lansdale edited out the reptilian bits after it was too late to change the cover art.)
Moreover, the writing isn't nearly as solid, the narrative as focused, the sequences as memorably scripted or the comedy as chuckle-inducing. Whereas the first book's laughs and vulgarity were well-placed and right on pitch, the raunchiness of the sequel is spread like chipped paint, awash in overspent shock value and bargain-bin cliches. Lansdale either ran out of steam on this one or all but phoned it in. The tension just isn't there, and the ride isn't as fun.
The idea of society-as-cinema felt fresh and thrilling in Lansdale's first outing but fails to breathe enough new life in the second take to keep me coming back for more. While it's even higher on the wonkiness scale than The Drive-In 1, the sequel's disordered pastiche of influences and repetitive nature ultimately terminate in forgettable schlock—like a B-movie you really didn't need to see.
The inhabitants of the drive-in are finally freed (what's left of them anyway) and the world they discover beyond the walls has changed quite a bit! This novel has it all. There are dinosaurs, monsters, aliens, true love, murder, horror movies, and lots and lots of popcorn.
Once again Lansdale writes an amazingly inventive story with lush scenery, well-thought out characters, an extremely fast-paced story, and of course, the popcorn king.
