TNT’s “MonsterVision” began in the early 1990s, but it was when Joe Bob Briggs took over as host in 1995 that the show really became a beloved Saturday night staple for horror fans. Essentially, Briggs played the role of horror host for the show, introducing different horror movies each week and popping up to talk shop throughout.
All these years later, Briggs will resume his horror hosting duties for Shudder, as we’ve just learned he’ll be hosting a 24-hour horror marathon this coming June!
“Joe Bob’s coming back to TV,” Briggs announced on his official Facebook page over the weekend. “He’s gonna be hosting a 24 HOUR MOVIE MARATHON on Shudder. That’s right, 24 hours of Joe Bob’s intros, outros, and OF COURSE the drive-in totals. It’ll start on a Friday in June, although we don’t know which Friday yet.”
We can confirm that the event will feature special guests and the return of Mail Girl. Briggs notes that it’s a one-off special for now, probably airing on Shudder’s live feed.
