Joe Bob: Deadly Feasts

Famed B-movie host Joe Bob Briggs returns to Shudder Thanksgiving night, some four months after viewer demand for his 24-hour, 13-movie Last Drive-In marathon overwhelmed the subscription service’s servers.

We hope Shudder’s improved its technical back-end for tomorrow’s four-flick Dinners of Death, which starts streaming at 9 pm ET over Shudder’s “It Came From Shudder” channel.

Titles of the films haven’t been announced, but they’ll all feature deadly dinners, including the “greatest movie ever made.”

“It Came From Shudder” is one of the live-streaming options on Shudder’s fairly new Shudder TV, which starts up automatically on Apple TV and Roku, is selectable as a playlist entry on Xbox One and Amazon Fire TV, or via a click or a tap on the web and mobile apps. Shudder TV, though, is not available to anyone who gets Shudder through Amazon, VRV or YouTube.

In good news for his fans, when tomorrow’s deadly dinners are finished, Shudder won’t be finished with Joe Bob. He’ll return yet again on Friday, December 21, with A Very Joe Bob Christmas marathon. “We have a very special way to fill the void felt by many American households after ABC stopped airing the Nestor the Long-Eared Christmas Donkey Claymation special.”

So, this one’s for Joe Bob:

Briggs will also get a regular Shudder series in 2019. It will mark a return to his roots, since Briggs first rose to TV fame in the ‘80s and ‘90s hosting Joe Bob’s Drive-In Theater on The Movie Channel and MonsterVision on TNT.
