Red Christmas, Joe Bob

With Thanksgiving just around the corner, Shudder has announced the highly anticipated holiday special, Joe Bob’s Red Christmas. Check out what happens when Joe Bob Briggs, the world’s foremost drive-in movie critic, hosts a must-see triple feature of holiday horrors.

As we previously mentioned, The Last Drive-In series offers an eclectic pairing of films, with selections ranging across five decades and running the gamut from horror classics to obscurities and foreign cult favorites. From time to time, special surprise guests will drop in on Joe Bob and Darcy the Mail Girl. The Last Drive-In with Joe Bob Briggs series is produced by Matt Manjourides and Justin Martell and directed by Austin Jennings.

Here are 5 reasons why we’re excited for Joe Bob’s Red Christmas:

5) It’s The Perfect Mix!

Briggs states, “Every Christmas we try to get that perfect mix of movies the whole family can watch, plus movies that will cause every family member except dedicated horror fiends to run screaming from the room. That’s because we realize that Christmas celebrations can go either way.”

4) The Classic And The Bizarre!

The Red Christmas host adds, “We think we’ve achieved that balance with Joe Bob’s Red Christmas, combining the cult, the classic and the bizarre in a holiday stew designed to keep you reaching for the egg nog or equivalent, and to keep Aunt Shirley complaining about your choices. In between the films we have holiday hijinks that are frankly embarrassing, because that’s also what Americans do on Christmas.” 

3) The Team!

Joe Bob’s Red Christmas is produced by Matt Manjourides and Justin Martell, and directed by Austin Jennings.

2) There’s More!

The Last Drive-In series will return for its second season in 2020! 

1) Where’s The Santa Hat!?!

Joe Bob’s Red Christmas will stream live on AMC Networks’ premium streaming service for horror, Shudder, on Friday, December 13th, 2019 at 9 p.m. ET.
