New Joe Bob special announced, Halloween Hootenanny premieres tonight

While fans gear up for Joe Bob’s Halloween Hootenanny which premieres on Shudder tonight, the horror streaming service has announced that Joe Bob will return on December 13 with an all-new special, 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. 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,” said Briggs.

Halloween Hootenanny is a triple feature horror movie marathon that will stream live at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT on Shudder in the U.S. and Canada tonight.

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 for a host of specials and a nine-week season of The Last Drive-In Friday night double features.

The Last Drive-In series will return for its second season in 2020 at a date to be announced.
