Hello there, Mad Dashiell here and thank you for joining me today! Yes that is an exclamation mark and no I'm not just manic but we have some great news today! First off, I've learned that the two words Halloween and Hootenanny go amazingly well together! Second, well let's dive right in, to The Last Drive-In, shall we?
Now fully confirmed my fellow mutant-theater lovers! Shudder has announced Joe Bob Briggs returns October 25! Iconic Horror Host Joe Bob Briggs and Darcy the Mail Girl are back for an all-new special, Joe Bob’s Halloween Hootenanny. The surprise triple feature streams live at 9 p.m, ET/6 p.m. PT on Shudder in the U.S. & Canada. It will later be readily available on Shudder later in October.
“As we were preparing for Season 2 of The Last Drive-In, we unearthed three forgotten gems that are all Halloween-themed and decided it was time for a Halloween Hootenanny. Or maybe I’m lying about that and we’re programming three iconic Halloween favorites. Or maybe we’re counter-programming with flicks that have absolutely nothing to do with Halloween. The great thing about spending October 25 with us is that, as Forrest Gump says, you never know what you’re gonna get. What we can promise is a) I will be ridiculously nerdy about horror, and b) Darcy the Mail Girl will probably disagree with me. It’s great to be back. I missed Shudder and the Shudder faithful,” said Briggs.
Joe Bob Briggs made his triumphant return back in July 2018 crashing Shudders servers due to hungry mutants ready to feast on that refreshing blast from the past nerdy hilarious humor that is and always defined, Joe Bob. He returned with a one time dusk to dawn to dust again whopping 13 film marathon. It made such a bloody splash with old fans and all the frenzied mutants that call themselves Mutant-Theater. Shudder went on to run The Last Drive-In with 2, four-film specials: Thanksgiving Days Dinners of Death & then back in December for A Very Joe Bob Christmas. Joe Bob and the amazing programmers at Shudder continued to run a nine-week season of The Last Drive-In for Friday night double features.
