Villain Overview
Fast food kills, f-cker!
~ Horny the Clown's famous catchphrase.

Horny the Clown is the main villain of the 2007 comedy-horror movie Drive-Thru and is a twisted parody of clown mascots such as Ronald McDonald as well as serial-killers in fiction. In life, Horny was a nerdy boy who was bullied relentlessly by his peers, climaxing in a tragic death when he was set on fire on his Birthday - thus he returned from the grave as a vengeful demon, taking the persona of Horny the Clown and murdering everyone who ventured too near the fast-food diner he used to work at. Horny the Clown was immortal and almost invincible but had some vulnerabilities that allowed the evil clown to be defeated in the end - though at the very end of the movie Horny the Clown suddenly reappears in the typical fashion of other slasher-killers such as Freddy Krueger or Jason Voorhees.

He was portrayed by Van De La Plante and voiced by Gordon Clapp.


Archie Benjamin was the son of Jack Benjamin, the owner of a fast food restaurant Hella-Burger in Orange County, California. Archie played the restaurant's prized mascot, Horny the Clown, so he was picked on a lot lately. He fell in love with a girl named Marcia, who had a boyfriend who didn't like him. So on the day of Archie's birthday in the restaurant, Marcia and her friends played a prank on him by having one of them chase around the restaurant's with a clown mask and a meat cleaver. Archie crashed into the table with his birthday cake where the candles set the restaurant on fire, burning Archie to death. However, years later, Archie comes back from the dead to get his revenge on Marcia and her friends, but instead of killing them he goes after their children. So in the beginning of the movie, two gangsters named Brandon and Tony go to Hella-Burger with their dates, Brittany and Tiffany, to order. There, Archie, now wearing a demonic version and calling himself Horny the Clown, messes with the two gangsters through the drive thru, causing them to hunt him down in the restaurant. Horny kills Tony by dipping his face into a deep fryer and kills Brandon by chopping his face with a meat cleaver. He then goes after the dates by striking one of them through the windshield and kills the other one off screen.

By the end of the first act, Archie chases after Marcia's daughter, Mackenzie through the school after killing her friend Val by having head trapped inside a microwave and kills the janitor, Lenny by having him hanged by an electrical cord. Mackenzie escapes, but the authorities believe Lenny did the killings and committed suicide due to his past record. By the second act, Horny the Clown kills a couple, Chad and Tina, in a horror themed ride by chopping Chad's head off and hacking Tina to death. Mackenzie's boyfriend, Fisher witnesses it, so Horny injuries him and let's him take the blame. Then, back at the restaurant, Horny kills two Stoners, by chopping one in the head, and beats the other one to death with the handle of his cleaver. After Mackenzie figures out about Archie's past, she, Fisher and two of her friends, Star and Van, go to Jack Benjamin's place to investigate. There, he kills Star by hacking her limbs off and stuffing her into the freezer and kills Van by slicing his body in half. He then attacks Mackenzie and Fisher. Horny knocks Mackenzie out and struggles with Fisher, after a struggle, Fisher gets Archie's mask off revealing his burned face. Upon seeing Archie's eyes, Fisher's own eyes become blood red and Archie throws out the window door. Archie then sets Mackenzie up in the restaurant with her dead friends at a table while she's tied up to a chair. There Archie reveals that he wants to kill Mackenzie on her Birthday just like her Mother did to him. Archie then proceeds with his plan by pouring gasoline all over Mackenzie and prepares to burn her with the Birthday candles. Fortunately, Marcia arrives and shoots Archie. While untying Mackenzie, Archie gets back up and strangles Marcia, but doesn't kill her. Archie goes back to burn Mackenzie, not realizing that she drank a flask of whiskey she had, and spits through the candle's fire, setting Archie on fire again. While Archie moves around on fire, Mackenzie and Marcia get away and watch as Archie burns to death. However, Fisher is at the Hospital with his eyes still blood red, and when Mackenzie and her mother arrive to see him, they find that he is gone. Back at the restaurant, one of the movies detectives orders through and is surprised to see Horny the Clown jumping on his car and gets killed through the windshield, leaving us to believe that Archie is now possessing Fisher.

  • "Hurt you? I ain't gonna hurt you, I'm just gonna bash your brains in. I'm gonna bash them RIGHT THE F**K IN!" and "Little pigs, little pigs, let me come in!" are direct quotes from The Shining antagonist Jack Torrance.
    • "All work and no play makes Horny a dull boy" is also from Jack, but just with Horny's name instead of Jack.
