Shudder Presents Joe Bob Briggs’ ‘Dinners of Death’ This Thanksgiving Eve

Movie marathons related to holidays are near and dear to every genre fan. If you were lucky enough to grow up in the New York City area, Thanksgiving offered one of the best two day marathons around with a “giant ape” marathon on Thanksgiving (the original Mighty Joe Young, King Kong, and Son of Kong) and a “Godzilla-fest” on the following day on what has come to be known as “Black Friday” on WWOR-Channel Nine.

This year, Shudder will celebrate two grand horror traditions on Thanksgiving Night with not only a horror marathon, but also the return of horror host Joe Bob Briggs for Dinners of Death. read more
