In December, horror host Joe Bob Briggs gave the audience the double-features event Ghoultide meetingincluding an auction for a couple to be married by Briggs herself, with Shudder confirming the host will return next week for Joe Bob’s Vicious Vegas Valentine, an event where the auction winners tie the knot. In addition to the ceremony, the event will feature a double surprise film, including commentary from Briggs and Darcy the Mailgirl about the surprise films. Joe Bob’s Vicious Vegas Valentine will air live on Shudder TV on February 10 at 9pm ET and will be available On Demand on Shudder starting February 12.
The event is described: “This Valentine’s Day, legendary horror host Joe Bob Briggs is making history and officiating the on-air wedding of two fans as he hosts a double helping of movies on the ultimate nightmare: True Love! RSVP to join Joe Bob, Darcy the postman, and the rest of The last drive thru crew as they bring two young lovers together under the neon and glitter of Las Vegas.”
Joe Bob Briggs said: “In this year’s demented double movie, I enter into an unholy marriage between two young lovers who have been thoroughly schooled in the twisted doctrines of The last drive thru. And I probably need an Elvis jumpsuit to do it.”
In 2018, Briggs returned to horror hosting with a 24-hour event on Shudder intended to be his broadcast. However, the popularity of the event took a toll on the platform’s servers, confirming that the public was as interested as ever in seeing him on the small screen. In the years since, Briggs has hosted not only multiple holiday-themed events, but multiple seasons of a weekly double-feature series.
Proving that the public was willing to put their money where their mouth was, the Ghoultide meeting‘s fundraising auctions eventually raised more than $200,000 for charities Jeanette Rankin Foundation, March of dimes, Thoroughbred Alliance for aftercareand Film and television fund. In addition to Briggs’ services as a wedding officiant, another hot item was the chance to join Briggs and Darcy for dinner at the winner’s local Cracker Barrel.
Joe Bob’s Vicious Vegas Valentine will air live on Shudder TV on February 10 at 9pm ET and will be available On Demand on Shudder starting February 12.
