Death at the Drive-In Week 4 FAQS

Here are the FAQS for week 4 of the Halloween event – Death at the Drive-In!

How do I begin the Insane Movie (Phase 4) for Death at the Drive-In?

You will need to complete Death at the Drive-In – III Pt. 9 before you can begin the fourth part of the event.

How do I unlock Ruth?

To unlock Ruth, you must repair the Stolen Brown Car. Once complete, you will have 7 days to collect the following materials:

15 Medicated Shampoos (common)

12 French/English Dictionaries (uncommon)

5 Pink Hairbands (rare)

5 Prosthetic Tongues (rare)

Meg Roach moving deco

Ruth is available until Thursday, November 5 at 3 PM, PST. If she is not completely unlocked before her 7 day timer reaches 0, she will disappear from the game at that time. If she is unlocked before the event ends, you will be able to continue her quests after the event has ended.

When do Crazy Clowns begin appearing?

Crazy Clowns will begin appearing after reaching Return of Death at the Drive-In Pt. 1.

How do I clear Crazy Clowns?

Use Gunpowder Barrels to clear Crazy Clowns. You will need 1 Gunpowder Barrel to create a Circus Cannon at the Movie Prop Shack. Circus Cannons will take 1 hour and 15 minutes to craft. After you have crafted a Circus Cannon, place it in the path of a Crazy Clown to damage them.

The area that the Circus Cannon covers will be shown with a green circle. If a Crazy Clown enters this circle, they will turn purple. Tap the checkmark to shoot the Crazy Clown while they are purple to damage them.

Each Circus Cannon deals 50 damage, and Crazy Clowns have 150 HP so you will need to hit them three times to clear them.

How do I get Gunpowder Barrels?

You can get Gunpowder Barrels from Patrick Pewterschmidt, Ghostface, Death’s Dog, Death’s Mom’s House, and the Creepy Clown Gate.

How do I get the Rainbow Barf Creature?

The Rainbow Barf Creature is available at the Movie Projection Booth for a limited time.

This animated deco is available for 24 hours after earning the prizes before it and viewing it at the Movie Projection Booth. If it is not earned before the timer runs out, it will disappear from the game at that time.

    1. Thank goodness. Although I am still beyond frustrated with this event and the slowness with which I am proceeding. 50 sodas for 20 reels. Which takes 6 hours. And I need 220 more to make it to the next movie. Either I’m doing something wrong or, well, I dunno. Because it’s crap trying to get concessions when I keep having to shoot stupid clowns and all that gives me is candy that doesn’t get me a ton of reels. Blah. Really have ended up disliking this event.


    1. Mike; I deliberately didn’t click on the movie projection booth in order to avoid starting the timer for the Petergeist house. When week 4 started I started the movie and the projection booth just showed me the week 4 prizes. Now I haven’t scrolled back to see if the timer for the Petergeist house has expired or not, but I’m hoping I’ve avoided starting it all. I’m not prepared at this stage in the game to spend 500 precious film reels for a house skin, but if at the end of the event I have enough films “spare” then I’m hoping the option is still there.


      1. nope doesn’t work like that. i tried the EXACT same method so when i finally scrolled back a page,the timer had already expired.


  3. How many movie reels are needed for the Petergeist household skin? I understand the timer for it but I can’t find the cost of it anywhere. It would be advantageous to know the cost prior to starting the timer. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you for all your excellent work on the site. Very informative.


  4. WARNING: in the new main walkthroughs, you’re going to be asked to search for Ruth. If you want to unlock her, DO NOT open the car’s trunk yet. As you’re going to need to save Patrick and unlock a few more prizes in order to unlock the Meg-fly deco to fulfill Ruth’s requirements.

    You basically have to prioritize Patrick and delay/ignore the main walkthrough in order to unlock Ruth.


    1. Yes Tiny Co should be sued over this. There is no ability to pay for Ruth or to get her clam rate down by collecting stuff, and you need Meg Roach to get her. This is truly disgusting behaviour from the company who are getting worse.


      1. Actually, it’s worse than that – you need the Worcestershire Mystery Mansion (the last one before the stupid ‘premium’ creature, and side rant, WTF is that? Why do I want to spend 600 reels on something I’ve never heard of and is ugly to boot?!?) to get the Prosthetic Tongues, which are RARE as well.


      2. nope it’s actually pretty damn possible to unlock Ruth successfully WITHOUT having to purchase clams! you may have to use a couple or so up, but what just happened to me was i kept playing every hour or so multiply times a day for the whole event actually, so when i FINALLY got the mystery mansion i had 24 hrs left on her timer and since the time for the drop of that mansion is just 1 hour it was pretty easy to accomplish collecting those prosthetic tongues. i just now unlocked her with about a half hour left on her timer! i only sped up the mansion like twice using a total of 2 clams ONLY.hope this helps!👍


  5. Predator, Alien, Jason Voorhees, Michael Myers, Chucky, Pinhead, Ghostface…

    What is a “Halloween Event” if all of these iconic people are premiums…


      1. I can understand that, really I can – but then make them useful. I have the premium characters from last year (Alien & Predator, and a couple more) and they sit in storage. I don’t buy premium characters at all any more, simply for that reason. Even for the Halloween event they don’t do anything useful, just earn more 3D glasses. I have no idea how many of THOSE I have by this point, wish I could trade them in for film reels!!

        Or make them the ‘freakin’ hard’ prizes instead – like the first one with slasher cat. Let’s be honest, those are premium prizes not-so-carefully concealed as ‘freemium’
