“The Drive-In will never die!”
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.
Briggs hosted the show until it was removed from TNT’s lineup in September 2000; the final episode aired on July 8, 2000, and included Children of the Corn II.
Now, 18 years later, Briggs himself has taken to Twitter to let his followers know that the streaming service Shudder is considering a reboot – and he needs our help.
“The Shudder network says they might revive some version of MonsterVision if we get enough video testimonials,” Briggs tweeted. “Weird, right? You can send them to firstname.lastname@example.org, but my position remains: The show was cancelled, so NOW THE PEOPLE MUST SUFFER.”
