The Last Drive-In with Joe Bob Briggs: “Sleepaway Camp” (2018)

Following the first movie of Shudder’s revival of the titular show (over the course of a twenty-four marathon), “Sleepaway Camp” makes for a great choice to highlight. Joined by the original movie’s star Felissa Rose, Joe Bob Briggs brings his trademark candid, workaday charm to his hosting duties here, discussing the original 1983 movie in great detail and humor with the movie’s star, and both seem comfortable with each other and to genuinely enjoy each other’s company. Regarding “Sleepaway Camp,” I’ve seen the movie a number of times and I’m consistently perplexed that horror fans take it so seriously because, as far as I’m concerned it’s one of the worst movies ever made and my appreciation is largely ironic, but it’s great to watch it accompanied by both Briggs and Rose.

Rating: ★★★★ (out of 5)
