We’ve been wondering who is set to arrive at the “Summer Sleepover” for this Friday’s installment of The Last Drive-In, and now we know. Shudder has revealed who is invited (and of course that includes you).
Adam Green, Kane Hodder, Brian Quinn, Felissa Rose and Tiffany Shepis join Joe Bob Briggs for ‘The Last Drive-In’ Summer Sleepover
Premieres This Friday at 9pm ET/6pm PT
August 10, 2020 — it’s a full house at the trailer park as director Adam Green (Frozen, Holliston) and actors Kane Hodder (the Friday the 13th franchise, Hatchet), Brian Quinn (Impractical Jokers), Felissa Rose (Sleepaway Camp) and Tiffany Shepis (Victor Crowley) join hosts Joe Bob and Darcy for “summer sleepover” installment of The Last Drive-In with Joe Bob Briggs. The special episode, pre-taped prior to quarantine, will premiere on Friday, August 14, at 9pm ET/6pm PT on the Shudder TV feed in the U.S. and Canada.
“We’ve never squeezed this many guests into the trailer park before, and all five of them are icons, from the guy who created the ‘Hatchet’ series to the guy who played Jason to one of the masterminds behind ‘Impractical Jokers’ to two bona fide scream queens. I call this a Pop Culture Brain-Exploding Overdose, and they all came ready to dish,” said Joe Bob Briggs.
On The Last Drive-In, Briggs, the world’s foremost drive-in movie critic, presents an eclectic horror movie double feature, interrupting the films to expound upon their merits, histories and significance to genre cinema. Shudder and Briggs first teamed up in July 2018, for the 24-hour marathon intended to be Briggs’ final farewell to televised movie hosting. Due to overwhelming popular demand, Shudder brought The Last Drive-In back as a weekly series and for multiple holiday specials. A third season has been announced, slated to premiere in 2021.
The Last Drive-In with Joe Bob Briggs is produced by Matt Manjourides and Justin Martell and directed by Austin Jennings.
It sounds like a packed night for fans of The Last Drive-In, or horror in general. We’ll also be live-tweeting the festivities on the official Haunted MTL Twitter account alongside the Mutant Fam, so please give us a follow and join us talking and riffing along with the movies.
The Last Drive-In‘s “Summer Sleepover” streams this Friday, August 14th at 9 PM ET/ 6 PM PT exclusively on Shudder.
