‘The Last Drive-In’ Returns With ‘Joe Bob’s Halloween Hootenaany’ On Friday October 25

Nothing says the Halloween season like horror movie marathons, especially when they are hosted by everyone’s favorite movie expert, Joe Bob Briggs. To commemorate this occasion, a brand new installment of Shudder’s The Last Drive-In series lands on October 25 at 9 pm entitled Joe Bob’s Halloween Hootenanny!

While preparing for season two of The Last Drive-In, Briggs claims that “…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.”

The Last Drive-In with Joe Bob Briggs first aired in July 2018 and was designed as a one time, 13-movie  marathon that “…was intended to serve as a curtain call for Briggs, who first came to prominence hosting B-movies on The Movie Channel and TNT in the ‘80s and ‘90s. The marathon proved so popular that Shudder brought Briggs back—first for two, four-film specials, Thanksgiving Day’s Dinners of Death and December’s A Very Joe Bob Christmas—and, in March 2019, for a nine-week season of The Last Drive-In Friday night double features.”

Check out the promo video below and have no fear, The Last Drive-In series will return for its second season sometime in 2020.
