Joe Bob Briggs hosts Halloween (1978) for the AMC and Shudder special The Last Drive-In with Joe Bob Briggs: Halloween
Legendary drive-in critic / movie host Joe Bob Briggs has already shown John Carpenter’s 1978 masterpiece Halloween on his Shudder series The Last Drive-In with Joe Bob Briggs – but to properly celebrate the film’s 45th anniversary, AMC has asked him to show the movie again! So tomorrow, Tuesday, October 10th, the new special The Last Drive-In with Joe Bob Briggs: Halloween will be premiering at 10pm Eastern time on AMC, AMC+ TV, and Shudder TV. This special will be airing in both the US and Canada, and then will be available on demand on Shudder as of Sunday, October 15th. To remind us that the special is airing tomorrow night, a promo has arrived online today and can be seen in the embed above.
Here’s the synopsis for The Last Drive-In with Joe Bob Briggs: Halloween: Joe Bob celebrates the 45th anniversary of this iconic horror film. Short, simple, to the point.
Directed by Carpenter from a screenplay he wrote with Debra Hill, the original Halloween has the following synopsis: THE NIGHT HE CAME HOME! Fifteen years after murdering his sister on Halloween Night 1963, Michael Myers escapes from a mental hospital and returns to the small town of Haddonfield, Illinois to kill again.
The film stars Donald Pleasence, Jamie Lee Curtis, P.J. Soles, Nancy Kyes, Charles Cyphers, Kyle Richards, Brian Andrews, John Michael Graham, Nancy Stephens, and Nick Castle.
The Last Drive-In with Joe Bob Briggs was recently renewed for a supersized sixth season that will be changing format (Joe Bob will only be hosting one movie each episode instead of the traditional double feature), but will also be allowing Joe Bob to be a more consistent presence on the Shudder streaming service throughout the year.

As a fan of both Joe Bob and Halloween, I’ll gladly watch him host the movie again as many times as Shudder and AMC want him to show it.
