The Last Drive-In With Joe Bob Briggs is back in full swing and with the seventh week of Season 4. Joe Bob and Darcy decided to show off a double feature of insane mothers, just in time for Mother’s Day!
If you’ve never heard of Joe Bob Briggs or The Last Drive-In, every week during the course of their season, Joe Bob Briggs hosts a double-feature of movies. They can be horror classics, cult favorites, or buried treasures. Either way, they show the movie with insightful commentary by Joe Bob and Darcy The Mail Girl, often with special guests.
The movies they choose are a secret until the time of airing. I guessed what two movies they would show and I got both right! The two movies shown were Butcher, Baker, Nightmare Maker and The Baby.
Butcher, Baker, Nightmare Maker (1982) D. William Asher, W. Alan Jay Glueckman – The Last Drive-In With Joe Bob Briggs
Joe Bob and Darcy started with Butcher, Baker, Nightmare Maker. A movie that follows a young boy, stalked by his aunt who harbors incestuous feelings for him. As he starts to develop feelings for others, he angers his aunt and what we get is pure evil incestuous aunt action!
A solid movie that gets creepier as the reveals keep coming. The movie is pretty satisfying on a lot of levels and it is apparent from the get-go why it’s such a cult classic.
The commentary by Joe Bob and Darcy was great, and even if there were no guests, it was still a fun time.
The Baby (1973) D. Ted Post, W. Gerald Fried – The Last Drive-In With Joe Bob Briggs
The second movie is so completely insane, that there is no rational number of Lonestars that could make this movie feel normal.
But that’s why we love The Last Drive-In. It sometimes challenges good taste or forces you to see some movies in a more respectful light, but you can’t argue with the fact that even a movie as insane as this is still given more respect in this 3-hour long chunk of programming than it’s likely ever received before this.
The movie itself I don’t want to spoil but watching it with Joe Bob and Darcy was a treat.
A strong double feature of crazy mothers, even as the movies got insane, it was still a ton of fun and you can tell Joe Bob had a lot to say about each movie.
