Are you ready for new drive-in totals and visits from the mail girl? Well, it doesn’t matter if you are or not, because MonsterVision is back in a new form: The Last Drive-In. This event will be a 24-hour horror movie marathon on the Shudder network, hosted by the one and only Joe Bob Briggs, as he finally confirmed a Friday, July 13th date for the revival event.
Okay, guys, we're doing it Friday the 13th in July--24 hours of MonsterVision-style horror worship on Shudder, the streaming service owned by AMC. It's called THE LAST DRIVE-IN because . . .

Briggs has been teasing a MonsterVision revival for a while now and, thanks to popular demand, it is finally happening. What we don’t know with any certainty is if this indeed the “last” drive-in. My guess is that the viewership and fan reaction to this marathon will dictate whether we see a true revival of the series.
