Shudder is gearing up for a 24-hour marathon of “The Last Drive-In With Joe Bob Briggs” which will span 13 films.
TNT’s “MonsterVision” really hit it’s stride when Joe Bob Briggs took over in 1995 as host and the show became a hit.
The show makes it return, with Briggs hosting, on Shudder in a 24-hour marathon on July 13th, Friday the 13th, beginning at 9pm EST.
Here is the lineup, as of now, with more expected to be announced soon.
- Tourist Trap (July 13) – Five friends are hunted by a creepy killer after stopping to visit a roadside museum in this slasher that counts Stephen King as one of its biggest fans. After car trouble, the doomed group goes to visit an odd attraction filled with eerie mannequins that seem to be alive. Tourist Trap is an off-kilter thriller that will have you rethinking any stops on your next road trip.
- Sleepaway Camp (July 13) – Angela Baker, a traumatized and very shy young girl, is sent to summer camp with her cousin. Shortly after her arrival, campers and counselors meet their ends in a series of grisly murders. This bloody “who done it” features a shock ending that stands the test of time.
- Basket Case (July 14) – In a tale of revenge with a demented twist, a young man, and his basket-bound, hideously deformed twin brother seek vengeance on the doctors who separated them against their will.
“Joe Bob is a horror icon and raconteur whose signature wit and insightful commentary entertained viewers for 14 years on TV,” said Craig Engler, general manager of Shudder. “We’re delighted to bring him back for this exclusive Shudder event where new fans can discover him, and old fans can rediscover him, as he takes on some of the greatest low-budget horror movies ever made.”
Shudder Announces ‘Joe Bob’s Halloween Hootenanny’
REVIEW: The Furies
Kidnapped and afraid, a woman finds herself fighting to stay alive as an unwilling participant in a deadly game where women are hunted by masked men, but the story goes much deeper than that generalized synopsis.
Kayla (Airlie Dodds) suffers from epilepsy and after an argument with her friend Maddie, is abducted, experimented on, and placed in a box left in the middle of the woods.
When Kayla awakens, she realizes she is in the middle of nowhere, but happens to connect with others girls in a similar hell, and the story of ‘The Furies’ starts to unfold.
Essentially, each of the girls are in a highly-orchestrated deadly game of survival, where death seems undeniable.
While The Furies packs on the gore with some impressive, toe curling, death scenes, the story is so fractured that is lost my attention several times as the film progressed. While it does offer a few surprising, creative wrinkles, it isn’t enough to make the film anything to write home about.
Watchable? Yes. But the substance doesn’t make it “must see” and certainly doesn’t make it memorable.
