Few things have been greeted as enthusiastically by the horror community as the return of knowledgeable, carnage-obsessed film critic Joe Bob Briggs on the streaming service Shudder. Last June’s Briggs-hosted movie marathon The Last Drive-In was so popular it crashed the Shudder servers while his introduction — and interrupting — of The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, among other films, on Thanksgiving Day proved an excellent alternative to staring over a turkey carcass at semi-conscious relatives.
Briggs is returning Dec. 21 with a new movie marathon titled A Very Joe Bob Christmas, a trailer for which as just been released. So, what can horror hounds expect this time around?
“We actually have four movies in a single film franchise that represent the spirit of drive-in Christmas,” says Briggs in the trailer. “And since the movies don’t make a lick of sense, you’re gonna need artificial stimulation, if you know what I mean, and I think you do. And so, we’re actually protecting your ass by encouraging you to be stupid at home, instead of going out and ending up as an episode of COPS.”
