The Last Drive-In pulls out all the stops for the Season 1 finale


After one amazing season full of horror classics (and not so classics), Joe Bob pulled out all the stops with the Season 1 finale of The Last Drive-In.

I, admittedly, have been bad about watching The Last Drive-In live for the first season. Aside from the premier episode, I have had to catch the double features later in the weekend or even the week. There’s shame.

However, I would be damned if I was going to miss the season 1 finale of the show, ESPECIALLY after the news that it was renewed for Season 2. My spooky ass was going to be there LIVE and I am very glad I did.

To start off The Last Drive-In, Joe Bob went off on an almost 10 minute long rant about hipster hotels. I was listening to this on my headphones in a moderately silent room. When Joe Bob said he was deciding whether or not to “eat a kale salad” or kill himself, I completely lost it.

Caffeine-free Diet Coke went airborne, all eyes in the room were on me and all I could respond with was, “It’s Joe Bob.” People seemed to understand.

The first film of the double feature was Blood Harvest, starring the devastatingly underrated Tiny Tim. The movie is s*** but the best part of the feature was learning more about the man behind the painted face. There was a moment when Joe Bob watched a clip of Tiny Tim watching a clip of Joe Bob during MonsterVision and commenting that this man “is important.” It almost gave me chills.

Blood Harvest is a bad movie filled with copious amounts of breast and/or nipple play that it’s practically soft-core porn. BUT it was worth it to see Tiny Tim’s first and only lead in a feature and learn a little about him.

The next film introduced was Hello, Mary Lou: Prom Night II, one of Darcy the Mail Girl’s (the incomparable Diana Prince) top five horror movies of all time. This film has nothing to do with the original Prom Night film, but it has tortured spirits of long dead prom queens, Catholicism, and big hair, so I am willing to look the other way.

In my humble horror opinion, it was a hell of a way to end the first season. It was a night filled with 80’s horror complete with bad acting, bad hair do’s and bad effects and it was awesome.

There is no word yet on when the second season of The Last Drive-In will premier, but  I do know for sure that the horror community will be squirming in their seats just waiting for more Joe Bob, more Darcy, more horror trivia and more of Joe Bob’s amazing jokes.
