Cupid better watch out… there’s a new love doctor in town and his name is Joe Bob Briggs! Shudder’s wildly popular original series, The Last Drive-In, is continuing its tradition of twisting and mangling holidays with its first-ever Valentine’s day special: Joe Bob Put a Spell on You.
The live special debuts on Friday, February 12 on Shudder’s TV feed at 9:00 pm EST/ 6:00 pm PST. Fans can also catch the special on-demand any time on Shudder and AMC+ beginning February 14th.
Get ready to dodge cupid’s arrow, devour mass amounts of heart-shaped chocolate, and discover the horror of Valentine’s Day with drive-in movie-critic-turned-love-guru, Joe Bob Briggs. Joe Bob, Darcy, and special guest Anna Biller (Viva, The Love Witch) will explore the lost art of romantic necromancy with a double-feature all about love, lust, and gore guaranteed to get your blood pumping!
As Joe Bob puts it, “We found a holiday we haven’t ruined yet. There’s a remarkable amount of horror fare centered around the hearts-and-flowers season. Plus Anna Biller may be the world’s foremost authority on the difference between what men mean when they talk about love and what women mean when they talk about love. There are dark aspects to Valentine’s Day, and we found all of them!”
On The Last Drive-In, Briggs, hosts an array of eclectic horror movie double features, delving into their merits, histories, and significance to genre cinema. Shudder and Briggs first teamed up back in July 2018, for a 24-hour marathon that was originally intended to be Briggs’ final farewell to televised movie hosting. But the fans demanded more of Joe Bob and he was happy to oblige. Shudder brought The Last Drive-In back as a weekly series and for multiple holiday specials. And a third season has been announced, premiering in 2021.
