With Halloween around the corner, Shudder has announced the highly anticipated special, Joe Bob’s Halloween Hootenanny. Check out what happens when Joe Bob Briggs, the world’s foremost drive-in movie critic, hosts a must-see triple feature.
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 Halloween Hootenanny:
5) It’s Halloween-Themed!
Briggs states, “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.”
4) The Shudder Faithful!
The Halloween Hootenanny host adds, “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.”
3) The Team!
Joe Bob’s Halloween Hootenanny are 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!
