Week 2 of Slater September is here. First up is the movie take on some classic episodes of The Twilight Zone. We chat about some of our favorite episodes and also talk the big controversy with the film. After that Christian Slater appears in Tales From The Darkside The Movie to chop up some mummies. Sit back and enjoy some classic horror anthologies.
We kick off Slater September with his skateboarding classic Gleaming The Cube. We then follow that up with one of Bryan’s favorite rollerblading movies from the 90’s Airborne. Also some discussions of hating a ringing cell phone, Friends, and Jessica Jones.
It’s shark week here at the drive in. First we’ll be taking a look at The Last Shark which pretty much steals most of it’s story from Jaws. Then after that we’ll be looking at Jaws 5 (aka Cruel Jaws) which literally steals everything from The Last Shark. After that we talk some more shark movies, Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich, and Bryan reveals a theme month not to be missed starting next episode.
This week Noah talked us into watching some Ralph Bakshi movies so we’re kicking things off with the 1978 animated version of Lord Of The Rings and then following that up with Bakshi’s look at a war torn future Apocalypse with Wizards. On top of that Bryan and Doug get excited over the Young Guns movies, we plan out an entire Christian Slater Month, and Bryan gets confused as to why the Lord Of The Rings movie ends so abruptly.
The folks over at Scotchworthy Productions have been busy. Earlier this summer their movie The Rake was released. Today they have dropped the trailer for their new horror anthology movie Skeletons In The Closet. This one takes 80’s nostalgia to a whole new level. Watch below and then click on the link to their website to learn where and how you can watch this.
This week we’re talking some rape revenge films. Always a feel good topic. Also Noah gets mad at Bryan and Doug for not being into Ralph Bakshi movies, we get a load of feedback, and Bryan gets mad at Noah and Doug when they don’t care about a dream that he had. All this and more!
This week we’re doing a kids night and showing some cartoon movies from our childhoods in the form of 1986’s Transformers The Movie and then following that up with 1987’s G.I. Joe The Movie. Just remember that “You got the touch, you got the power!” Yo Joe.
This week Cronenberg takes over the drive-in as we chat about two of his films. First up is the currently being remade Rabid. After that it’s Shivers. We didn’t really put together how similar these movies are until we watched them. After that it’s talk of Who Is America?, Castle Rock, and Cruising.
This week we’re talking some Bava movies. First up is the intricate slasher A Bay Of Blood. After that we’re following it up with Bava’s back from the dead Baron Blood! Also we chat about foods that shouldn’t be mixed together, The Last Drive-In With Joe Bob Briggs, Antman & The Wasp, and Noah tries to convince us that the Venom movie might be good.
It’s Killer Cops week at the ole drive in. First up we’re talking about a low budget film Psycho Cop. After that it’s the battle of the chins as Robert Z’Dar takes on Bruce Campbell in Maniac Cop. In reality Tom Atkins mustache takes them all out. After that we talk about Mother, Solo, The Stepfather, Re-Animator, GLOW, and The Pack.
We’re talking some horror comedies. First up is High Spirits with The Gute Steve Guttenburg and a cast that has to be seen to be believed. After that we follow it up with a movie that killed Dan Akroyd’s career. Nothing But Trouble. After that we talk some Luke Cage, Jurassic World, Final Exam, Alone In The Dark, and Orca.
Joe Bob Briggs is proclaiming this his LAST time hosting his Drive-In show. On Friday the 13th in July Shudder will be hosting 24 hours of movies hosted by Joe Bob Briggs. He’ll be doing his classic format even with movie breaks even though Shudder doesn’t have commercials. And this is a LIVE event. No watching it after it happens. Watch the promo below and then read the details:
JOE BOB TO HOST 24-HOUR MOVIE MARATHON ON FRIDAY THE 13TH THIS JULY ON SHUDDER
I’m gonna put on the black hat, polish the belt buckle, dust off the Lazy-Boy recliner, and settle in at the trailer house for my movie-hosting farewell tour….13 movies starting on Friday the 13th this July on Shudder, the streaming service owned by AMC.
It’ll kick off at 9pm ET (6pmPDT) on Shudder, and we’re going dusk to dawn til almost dusk again. The Last Drive-In with Joe Bob Briggs is 13 movies on Friday the 13th with all the classic Joe Bob elements–the trailer house set, a new Mail Girl, digressions, rants, offbeat celebrity interviews, the Drive-In Totals, and interruptions to talk about the movie. (We have commercial breaks on a network that has no commercials. Possibly a television first.)
I’ll be sending out more details soon about exactly how you can sign up for Shudder to watch the show as it airs.
Hey look it’s Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee. Two awesome guys that go great together. First we check out the thriller with quite a twist Nothing But The Night. After that we look at what pure evil actually is. Being really slutty in The Creeping Flesh. After that we talk Hereditary, The Curse Of Frankenstein, Cargo, I Don’t Feel At Home In This World Anymore, Hotel Artemis, The Endless, and Ginger Snaps. That’s a lot of movies.
Well we learned that apparently Canadians burned down the white house in the war of 1812 so we promptly kicked Doug off the show. Noah and I figured we should learn kung fu to make sure none of this ever happens again and what better way to learn than by watching movies? First up we checked out the Jim Kelly classic Black Belt Jones. We followed that up with learning from the Shogun of Harlem in The Last Dragon. No Canadians are burning down our white house again!
We were feeling too good about ourselves so we decided to bring the mood down a bit by watching the 2008 Jack Ketchum adaptation RED and then the 2013 Jeremy Sauliner movie Blue Ruin. We also discuss the cancellation of Roseanne, pooping in Tim Hortons, and films such as Split Image, Murder Party, Flash Gordon, Dune, The Starman TV show, and a bit of Solo.
We take to the stars this week to talk about 2 sci fi movies from 1984 that have STAR in the title. First up is The Last Starfighter. How good at you at video games? It could land you a wicked job Starfighter. Then after that we watch Jeff Bridges phone home in the John Carpenter alien film Starman. All this and we find out some interesting facts about dating Noah.
We missed Mother’s Day by a week and then randomly decided to do two movies about dead mothers. We’re on the ball. Anyway we talk about the Peter Jackson classic Dead Alive (aka Braindead) and the Steve Buscemi comedy Ed And His Dead Mother. There is a small discussion about the state of the Star Wars Universe, Deadpool 2, and a non-recommend from Doug.
This week we’re teaming up two movies that I have once again forgotten why. But we mention it in the episode. First up is the Argento/Luci joint Demons. After that we talk some Rawhead Rex. During the show we also find out Noah’s hatred for a 90’s horror franchise, talk the upcoming THE PREDATOR, and read a lot of long ass emails.
In week two of letting Noah pick movies we have Malibu Express and Hard Ticket To Hawaii. There lots of talk about boobs, rocket launchers, and snakes. Listen in as Doug’s soul withers and Noah laughs at his misfortune! Also a few pieces of feedback but we’re pretty light on other movies this week. It’s a quick one.
Since these comic book movies are all the rage we figured we would talk about some comic book related films. First up is the 1978 TV movie Dr. Strange. Lots of mustaches in this one. After that it’s time for Full Moon’s Doctor Mordrid starring Jeffrey Combs. Let’s face it it’s really just a Doctor Strange rip off. But it does have a skeleton fight. After all that we talk about Fargo, Lost In Space, Spider-Man 2, Puppet Master, Sub Species, Black Lightning, Death Race 2050, Ash vs. Evil Dead, Ruby, and the Roger Corman Fantastic Four.
