“In Praise Of: Rewind-Joe Bob Briggs’ Monstervision” by G. Hunter

“Joe Bob Briggs Goes to the Drive-In” by Richard Schmidt

I cannot show enough love for Joe Bob Goes to the Drive-In. This collection of Joe Bob Briggs best drive-in movie reviews from his syndicated column in the early to mid 1980s is fun as hell to read and provides a marvelous snapshot of the ridiculous films available to the drive-in crowds back in the day ...


“Top 100 Shows of All Time 61-70” by Nick C

There was only one Joe Bob Briggs, and The Movie Channel has been a shadow of its former self since they let him get a life.  He made some truly awful movies at least enjoyable for a moment.  His description of the movie I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE is still one of the most famous reviews ever ...

“Remembering TNT’s Monstervision” by Zombies Don’t Run

Echoing what a reader said during our look back at USA's Saturday Nightmares, I miss Joe Bob Briggs. Just as important to me as I was growing up was TNT's MonsterVision ...


“TV Rants and Raves” by 411 Mania


I'm serious about this Joe Bob thing. It just makes no sense to me. With all of the recent horror movie TV host nostalgia and the fact that AMC seems to be the only cable channel willing to create at least a niche horror identity (the only other channel that does something similar is Spike.
