Chances are if you grew up during the 90s you saw at least an episode or two of Monsyervision or Joe Bob's Drive in Theater staring, of course, the infamous Joe Bob Briggs. If you somehow aren't familiar, Joe Bob is a drive in loving trailer dweller with knack for totaling stuff like breasts seen on screen or how many heads explode in the movie. Briggs is a half film critic and half a comedian who really knows his stuff when it comes to grind house, horror and exploitation films.
Joe Bob will be coming back for one last Drive in mega marathon this July Friday the 13 on the subscription service Shudder. Subscribers will be treated to 24 solid hours of horror completed with Joe Bob's criticisms, whit and of course the drive-in totals. Joe Bob tells us this is the last time and that if '“You don’t pay attention this time, that’s it, I do not want to have to explain this stuff to you people again.”
So far the itinerary consists of cult films, Tourist Trap
, Sleepaway Camp
, and Basket Case
.Shudder members will be encouraged join the conversation with Shudder’s Twitter account @Shudder during the marathon, which will include special guests, surprises, and prizes for participation.There will also be an upcoming Reddit AMA on July 10th, as well as screenings hosted by Joe Bob at the Nitehawk Cinema in Brooklyn, NY on July 11th and the Alamo Drafthouse in Dallas, TX on July 12th. ...and yes, in case you were wondering, mail girl will also be returning. So uh, I'm old now, I'm not going to make it 24 hours,could one of my readers set their VHS for me? Link to the trailer for the Last Drive in is below.
