Tonight, Shudder celebrates All Hallow's Eve with their "Halloween Hootenanny" special, and they're adding to the excitement of another night with Joe Bob with... well, more Joe Bob!
The streaming service announced today that Joe Bob Briggs will return on December 13th with an all-new special titled." Joe Bob’s Red Christmas"!
The triple feature of holiday horrors will stream live at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT on Shudder in the U.S. and Canada. It will also be made available on demand later in December.
"Every Christmas we try to get that perfect mix of movies the whole family can watch, plus movies that will cause every family member except dedicated horror fiends to run screaming from the room. That’s because we realize that Christmas celebrations can go either way," said Briggs. "We think we’ve achieved that balance with Joe Bob’s Red Christmas, combining the cult, the classic and the bizarre in a holiday stew designed to keep you reaching for the egg nog or equivalent, and to keep Aunt Shirley complaining about your choices. In between the films we have holiday hijinks that are frankly embarrassing, because that’s also what Americans do on Christmas."
"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. 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. The show’s hashtag, #TheLastDriveIn, trended on Twitter during each of its live premieres as fans enjoyed the show together in real time.
"The Last Drive-In" series will return for its second season in 2020 at a date to be announced. :"The Last Drive-In" and "Joe Bob’s Red Christmas" are produced by Matt Manjourides and Justin Martell and directed by Austin Jennings.
