Never one to leave his legions of loyal fans behind, Horror host and icon Joe Bob Briggs teased a return to Shudder with a new Halloween special, The Halloween Hootenanny, guaranteed to give us what we crave during spooky season. Joined as always by Mail Girl Darcy (played by Horror icon in her own right, Diana Prince), we’re stoked as hell to laugh alongside another live stream on Shudder. The hosted triple feature will stream live at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT in the U.S. and Canada. It will also be made available on demand later in October.
The Last Drive-In with Joe Bob Briggs began in July 2018 as a one time, dusk-to-dawn-to-dusk, 13-movie marathon. It 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, as well as his iconic one man show “How Rednecks Saved Hollywood“. The Shudder marathon proved so popular that Shudder brought Briggs back—first for two, four-film specials, Thanksgiving Day’s Dinners of Death and December’sA Very Joe Bob Christmas—and, in March 2019, for a full season.
“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,” – Joe Bob Briggs
