Grab your Lonestar and celebrate horror with us as we are now three weeks into Season 4 of The Last Drive-In With Joe Bob Briggs on Shudder.
If you are not aware, each week host Joe Bob Briggs alongside his trusty mail girl, Darcy, hosts a double feature on Fridays at 6 PM PST/9 PM EST on Shudder.
While we don’t know what the movies that will be shown are, as they’re revealed when the stream starts; we’re able to make some educated guesses.
Below is a quick score of my predictions to see how I’m doing!
First Prediction: Nosferatu (1922)
OK, when I think of a movie with an anniversary that would be considered ‘strange’ I think of Nosferatu.
For one, it’s a silent film, so unlike most movies on The Last Drive-In, there would be no dialogue. Personally, I don’t mind. Also, a 100-year anniversary is a pretty big deal. Yes, there are a lot of 1982 movies celebrating 40-year anniversaries, but 100 years is a bigger deal.
Also, this season it seems like Joe Bob and Darcy save the horror classics or the more high brow horror for the first movie, and Nosferatu would fit the bill.
Second Prediction: Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon (2006)
Thinking of a tribute film, the first that comes to mind is Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon.
The movie is similar to films like Scream in that it references horror movies from the past, and even features some horror movie actors in cameos.
It would be a strange pairing because I can’t see what would connect the two films, but if Joe Bob says it’s a strange episode, one can assume we aren’t following the rules.
Down the Road (2012) is a great tribute to B-movie slashers while also keeping things relatively grounded.
We’re seeing the 40th anniversary of many horror movies this year. The Thing, Creepshow, Poltergeist, Cat People, and so many more. Take your pick honestly as all of them have a mildly reasonable shot. Can one still hold out hope for Halloween III: Season Of The Witch? The tides may be turning for that.
Stay tuned for my review to see if I’m correct!
