Shudder has announced two more iconic guests for the season finale of The Last Drive-In with Joe Bob Briggs. Time to raise hell with Doug Bradley and Ashley Laurence.

For the second season of The Last Drive-In, Joe Bob and Darcy have pulled out all the stops, bringing us guests such as Kelli Maroney (Chopping Mall, Night of the Comet), wrestler Chris Jericho, the legendary Tom Savini, and Troma’s Lloyd Kaufman. On last week’s episode, they debuted the horror anthology film Scare Package (which will begin streaming later this month), as well as Hogzilla, which featured Joe Bob Briggs himself. Hogzilla was a much-discussed and unreleased film that sat on the shelf for 13 years before finally premiering on The Last Drive-In.

In a tweet on Thursday afternoon, Joe Bob delared: “Yes, Pinhead and Kirsty are in the trailer park!” He was referring, of course, to Doug Bradley and Ashley Laurence, both of whom appeared in 1987’s Hellraiser. Laurence played the character of Kirsty in three of the sequels, and Bradley played Pinhead in the first 8 films in the franchise.

Joe Bob’s announcement leads us to the conclusion that one of the films in his weekly double feature will likely be a Hellraiser movie that features both of the actors. The question is, which one? He already showed the first film in his original marathon, so that one is probably out.

Laurence appeared in Hellbound: Hellraiser II and made a brief appearance in Hellraiser III: Hell on Earth before appearing in 2002’s Hellraiser: Hellseeker. Most fans think that Hellraiser II will be the chosen film for the season finale.

The Last Drive-In with Joe Bob Briggs began its life as a 13-film marathon on Shudder in July of 2018. After Joe Bob and co-host Darcy the Mail Girl famously “broke the internet”, The Last Drive-In returned with two shorter marathons on Thanksgiving and Christmas of that year. It became a weekly series last year, screening films such as Castle Freak and Demon Wind. The second season debuted on April 24 of this year, and concludes on June 19.
