Seize your Lonestar and rejoice horror with us as we at the moment are three weeks into Season 4 of The Final Drive-In With Joe Bob Briggs on Shudder.
In case you are not conscious, every week host Joe Bob Briggs alongside his trusty mail lady, Darcy, hosts a double function on Fridays at 6 PM PST/9 PM EST on Shudder.
Whereas we don’t know what the flicks that can be proven are, as they’re revealed when the stream begins; we’re in a position to make some educated guesses.
Beneath is a fast rating of my predictions to see how I’m doing!
First Prediction: Host (2020)
A British manufacturing, a Shudder unique, and was one of the lauded movies of the yr, horror or in any other case. It additionally actually used the lockdown, isolation, and expertise to inform an attractive story.
Collectively this all is sensible for why it might be a sensible choice to point out. Additionally, it will get folks extra within the Shudder exclusives which they’ve carried out earlier than (Mandy, Fried Barry, and so on).
Arguably this isn’t fairly what most would take into account a ‘drive-in’ film. Joe Bob tends to skew in direction of exploitation and sleaze which this movie doesn’t have however there have been cases equivalent to when he confirmed The Changeling, Exorcist III, or Halloween the place he confirmed off some extra higher-brow picks, and I believe that might be the case this week.
Second Prediction: Pontypool (2008)
Pontypool is a Canadian movie and one which was well-regarded and revered upon its launch. It additionally scratches among the identical itches that make for a traditional The Final Drive-In function, in that it’s a guerilla movie and one which makes use of its price range effectively for some first rate scares and results.
My solely reservation for why this wouldn’t be picked is that it’s not on Shudder presently; nevertheless movies can debut on Shudder alongside their Final Drive-In debut, and in some markets, AMC has the film on a few of its apps, and AMC is the guardian firm behind Shudder. So it doesn’t look like it might be a stretch to get it on the service.
Quarantine is a remake of a Spanish horror movie known as [REC]. Joe Bob might be enjoying along with his phrases right here (as he does are inclined to get inventive along with his wording!) and it may qualify because it’s an English remake of a Spanish movie.
Blood Quantum is a Canadian movie that offers with isolation in attention-grabbing methods. It’s additionally presently streaming on Shudder within the US. So this one is a robust contender as effectively
Keep tuned for my assessment to see if I’m appropriate!
