Just in time for Distracted Driver Awareness month, Shout! Factory TV is admitting liability for a livestream sure to combat the epidemic with its Online Crash Course in Better Driving. The Shout! Factory TV original event puts the pedal to the metal with driver’s education videos, classic Mystery Science Theater 3000 shorts, and a feature presentation of Scream Factory slasher Fender Bender on Saturday, April 22 at 12 p.m. PST at ShoutFactoryTV.com.
Fasten your seatbelts for a crash course like no other. Throughout the livestream, our esteemed instructor Wilbur P. Thudbutter will discuss topics like automotive safety, dealing with road rage, and how not to be stupid behind the wheel. Learn proper driving techniques, watch thought-provoking driver’s education videos, listen to guest instructors from MST3K and enjoy the extreme driver’s ed film, Fender Bender, which shows what can go horribly wrong after even a minor accident. Terrifying and educational! Plus throughout the course, take part in our interactive quiz and compete with other viewers to see who’s a good driver, and who should be banned from the roads forever.
Evocative of the horror-thriller classics of yesteryear, Fender Bender brings you back to a time when the boxes on the shelf at your local video store beckoned you with masked, knife-wielding maniacs and a twisted sense of morals. Written and directed by Mark Pavia (Stephen King’s The Night Flier), the movie stars Makenzie Vega (The Good Wife), Dre Davis (Pretty Little Liars, Scavenger Killers), Cassidy Freeman (Smallville, Longmire) and Bill Sage (American Psycho, We Are What We Are).
Seventeen-year-old Hilary has just received her driver’s license… only to have her first accident shortly thereafter. Innocently exchanging her personal information with the remorseful stranger behind the wheel, Hilary returns home for a quiet evening with friends. But when the man she so readily handed all of her information to reveals himself to be something much darker and sinister than she could imagine, Hilary finds herself in a head-on collision with terror.
Shout! Factory TV’s Online Crash Course in Better Driving will be streaming live from noon to 5 p.m. (PST) on Saturday, April 22nd at http://www.shoutfactorytv.com/ and on Pluto TV, CH 512.
