My dream lineup for Joe Bob's next drive-in!!!
This past summer horror and movie fans from all over the country rejoiced when the return of Mr. Joe Bob Briggs returned for his "Last drive-in" This seriously felt like a dream come true since Joe Bob had been a spirit animal for myself since I was little, and one of the main inspirations of me starting Staystillreviews way back in 2012. I grew up watching him appear in such cameos in movies like The Stand, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 (in a hilarious deleted scene), and Casino. I still remember staying up watching Monstervision, and Last Call on TNT where he would have a friendly semi-sexual banter with his many mail girls, do his drive-in totals, and crack jokes over the B ratted movies that screened each night. I was lucky enough to meet Joe Bob in the summer of 2016, and I honestly don't think I've never been so star-struck. I just remember gushing to him over how much his shows meant to me, and what a huge inspiration he was while I was growing up. Being the Southern gentleman he was, he called me the B movie queen of Boston, and recommend that I finally get around to checking out a drive-in someday (Still got that on my list Joe Bob!) What really made this past summer magical was when horror movie streaming site Shudder announced they would be having a 24 hour movie marathon featuring Joe Bob Briggs as he hand picked 13 awesome horror movies, packed full of interviews, jokes, and drive-in totals. This seriously was one of the best ways to celebrate the last Friday the 13th in awhile! In fact I was one of the lucky winners when Fright Rags did a contest, where you could win a Joe Bob Last Drive In autograph! What made this night even cooler, was the fact that SO many people tuned into the Shudder website, that it crashed! So if you think about it...Joe Bob broke the internet! There have been rumors that this was a sure-tell sign that this was in fact not Joe Bob's last visit to the drive-in, and in the future we may get another awesome movie marathon of his!!!
So while we're staying hopeful for another marathon, here are 13 movies that I would just LOVE to see Joe Bob cover for yet another drive-in!
1) Fright Night
2) A Nightmare On Elm Street 3 Dream Warriors
3) Day Of The Dead
4) 976 Evil
6) Amityville 1992 It's About Time
7) He Knows You're Alone
8) Jason Goes To Hell The Final Friday
9) Night Of The Demons
12) Class of 1999
So In closing, what would your choices be for another round of Joe Bob's last drive-in?
