The Last Drive-In with Joe Bob Briggs: My Movie Marathon Picks

MonsterVision was MY LIFE when I was a kid, and Joe Bob Briggs was a god. He introduced me to some of my favorite movies; I can’t imagine how long it would have taken me to discover movies like Phantasm or Motel Hell without him. I could write pages and pages about how MonsterVision and Joe Bob affected me, but that’s a story for another time.

Getting to the point, tomorrow is a HUGE day. It’s Friday the 13th which, as you may know, is already a big deal for me. More importantly, it’s the return of Joe Bob Briggs after far too many years. And we get 24 hours of him. To say I’m excited would be a massive understatement.

Shudder has allowed 3 movie titles to be revealed and the rest are a secret. I decided to browse through Shudder’s catalog and take a guess as to what the other ten movies might be. I’m assuming a few things here:

The marathon will be ‘80s heavy (I think I read that somewhere)

There probably won’t be any subtitled movies

The majority of movies will lean more on the fun side, rather than super serious and dark (so maybe no Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer)

 

The movies we know are Tourist Trap, Basket Case, and Sleepaway Camp, and I am 100% on board with those choices. My guesses for the other ten movies are:

Re-Animator

The Evil Dead

Hellraiser

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre

Phantasm

Zombie

C.H.U.D.

The Stuff

House

The Howling

 

If I’m wrong. I’m wrong. It really doesn’t matter, as long as I get my Joe Bob.  I’m just hoping at least a few of these movies will be included. What are your guesses?
