The Last Drive-In With Joe Bob Briggs

Horror is best when shared with friends and there is no better way to enjoy horror with friends than with The Last Drive-In with Joe Bob Briggs on Shudder. Back in 2018, a supposed one-time-only return for Joe Bob literally crashed the internet. Soon he was back for a few specials, before The Last Drive-In officially returned last year, a Friday night double feature of horror, complete with Joe Bob’s usually insightful and hilarious commentary, special guests, and of course Darcy the Mailgirl. Perhaps there is no better time, since we all quarantined away due to COVID-19, for Joe Bob to return and save us from the monotony of social distancing, remote learning, and zoom meetings. The Last Drive In’s second season begins this Friday night, April 24th on Shudder.

Felissa Rose

Felissa Rose has endeared herself to horror fans for nearly 40 years. The New York-born star was just 13 when she got her first role as a shy teen, turned killer in the now iconic Sleepaway Camp (1983). That role, as well as the film’s infamous ending (no spoilers), has stayed with her, launching a career in horror that has garnered nearly 120 roles on IMDb as well as recurring role as “Mangled Dick Expert” on Shudder’s The Last Drive In starring Joe Bob Briggs. Rose makes countless appearances at horror conventions throughout the country, and speaking from experience, there is no one more genuine and pleasant with guests. It was my pleasure to speak with her via telephone last week to discuss her career, current films, and the uncertainty of life in a true horror landscape.

Check out the full interview below.

Shudder Presents Cursed Films

Shudder Presents: Cursed Films Episode 4 & 5 – The Crow & Twilight Zone: The Movie

Shudder’s new documentary series Cursed Films came to a conclusion this Thursday with two episodes surrounding movies that are notorious more for tragedy than for supernatural cursing. Those films are 1994’s The Crow and 1983’s Twilight Zone: The Movie. As he did with the Poltergeist episode, series creator Jay Cheel interviews people who were on set and worked with actors who died during production of the films. Their stories are harrowing and devastating and make the series a necessity for any horror film fan or cinephile in general. Here’s hoping for a season two.

Shudder Presents: Cursed Films Episode 2 & 3 – The Omen & Poltergeist

Living through the real world horrors of a global pandemic and quarantine makes sitting for horror-based entertainment very interesting, to say the least. Shudder is there for us horror fans, updating their catalogs with a “Halfway to Halloween” theme as well as a new series from writer/director Jay Cheel, Cursed Films. Last week’s premiere episode: The Exorcist, was Shudder’s second biggest streaming debut ever behind their updated Creepshow series last year. This week, we get a two-fer of episodes dealing with two of the most notoriously plagued and cursed productions in cinematic history, let alone horror history: The Omen and Poltergeist.

Shudder Presents Cursed Films Episode 1 The Exorcist

Shudder Presents: Cursed Films Episode 1 – The Exorcist

Horror fans have long shared stories of cursed productions on the set of some of the most famous and infamous horror films. It’s easy to shake many of these away as superstition or paranoia, but we are talking about the horror genre here, so is it too far out of the reach of our minds, that maybe… just maybe the films that scare us the most are cursed? That is the question being posed by Shudder, AMC’s horror streaming service, which unveiled today Cursed Film, its new 5-part series. The series covers Poltergeist (1982), The Omen (1976), Twilight Zone: The Movie (1983), and The Crow (1994). Perhaps fittingly, though, the premiere episode deals with William Friedkin’s genre-defining classic from 1973, The Exorcist.

Shudder Creepshow header

I am a shameless [non-paid] promoter for Shudder, AMC’s horror and supernatural streaming service. But like Sy Sperling of Hair Club for Men, I am also a client. Shudder is in the midst of an amazing Fall season, and Greg Nicotero’s new series Creepshow is on the frontlines of all of it. Season 1 of the anthology series is 6 episodes consisting of two 20+ minute segments featuring the acting, writing, and directing talent of some of the best in the genre. And before season 1 can even end, Shudder announced that the series has been renewed for a second season.

Trick 'r Treat

Horror fans are in all their glory as Halloween quickly approaches. Those looking to bolster their 31 Days of Halloween horror movie viewing should act now and join AMC’s Shudder, the biggest and best horror streaming service available. And I mean like right now! The service just announced that new members signing up for a year of Shudder can get 31% off annual subscriptions by visiting try.shudder.com/halloween2019. That’s a measly $3.28 per month in the U.S. and Canada, and £/€2.78 in the UK and Ireland. This extremely limited offer expires at midnight Pacific Time on Halloween (Thursday, October 31, 2019).

Shudder also just acquired the exclusive U.S. and Canadian distribution rights for Rob Zombie’s 3 From Hell, the conclusion to his Rejects trilogy. The film will premiere on Shudder in February of 2020, and will join other Zombie films such as Shudder Exclusive 31, House of 1,000 Corpses, and The Devil’s Rejects.

Shudder’s reimagining of George A. Romero’s and Stephen King’s Creepshow has been a monster hit, breaking streaming records for AMC’s genre service since its premiere in late September. Last week’s Creepshow episode was my favorite of the season thus far and this week we get the penultimate episode of the debut season with a “The Night of the Paw” and “Times is Tough in Musky Holler.” Created by Greg Nicotero of The Walking Dead, Creepshow features phenomenal practical effects, an assortment of genre legends sprinkled throughout the cast, and the darkly comedic fable-like storytelling that Creepshow made popular in the original 1982 film.

Joe Bobs Red Christmas

Friday night on AMC’s horror streaming service Shudder, Joe Bob Briggs returned with another The Last Drive-In special, the Halloween Hootenanny, featuring a triple threat of Michael Myers movies and Darcy the Mailgirl doing Tom Atkins cosplay. The original 1978 Carpenter classic was followed by 1988’s Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers and 1989’s Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers. The latter of which, Joe Bob called a torture device. You won’t have to wait too long to get your fill of Joe Bob’s wisecracking commentary, film history tidbits, and drive-in totals as he’ll be ushering in the holiday season with Joe Bob’s Red Christmas, a holiday-themed triple threat of horror going live on Shudder on Friday, December 13, 2019.
